Selecting Indoor Sensor Location
We highly recommend setting up your indoor sensor in a common area within 75 feet of your router. This will ensure a stable connection for your sensors. The sensors connect over wifi, and rely on a good line of sight to send data through your router to our servers.
Picture line of sight as a string tied from your sensor to your router. This string should be less than 75 feet and you should avoid connecting through plumbing or any large electrical appliances like a refrigerator, air conditioning unit or washing machine. Some common household items that interfere with wireless communication are cordless phones and microwaves. Try to avoid setting up sensors within 10 feet of any cordless phones or microwaves. The shorter this string is, and the less walls and objects it has to go through, the stronger your connection will be.
Avoid placing the sensor anywhere with a lot of electrical wires. This will interfere with connectivity. Please do not set up the sensor on any surge protector or multi-plug:
Setting up the sensor behind a couch or behind a door will mute the noise it is able to pick up by 10-20 NRS. The exact number can vary based on how close the sound source is and how loud the sound source is. The louder a noise is, the further it will travel. Sound waves also travel in line of sight, and measurements will be most accurate when pointed directly at the activity zone.
