How to check the strength of the cameras wifi connection.

Once you have setup the camera and placed it in its intended location it is a good idea to check the strength of its WiFi connection. If the connection is not strong enough then this may drop out and you may have trouble accessing the camera. 

The strength of the cameras WiFi connection will depend entirely on your router and its WiFi range, as each router is different the range can vary depending on the model of router that you have.



To check the strength of the cameras WiFi connection, open the Ucam247live app on your mobile device and go to Edit Camera, Advanced Setting, WiFi Setting.




On this page you will see a list of networks in the local area. This will also show the network the camera is connected to and its current strength, this should ideally be at least 60% or higher for the camera to have a good connection to the local WiFi network.

If the strength of the cameras WiFi connection is below 50% then it has been placed close to the edge of your routers WiFi range, click here for information on resolving this.
