WiFiman is an intuitive app that will assist you in optimizing your network setup. Here are just a few of the solutions WiFiman can offer you:

Speed Testing

From the Speed tab, you can run speed tests on your connected WiFi network or cellular data. The speed test results will showcase your upload and download speeds, enabling you to gauge your network performance. Additionally, when connected to a network managed by a UniFi Cloud Gateway, the app provides insights into signal strength and channel width, helping you optimize wireless speeds for the best browsing experience.

Wireless Connection Metrics (Requires UniFi Gateway)

The Signal tab in the WiFiman Mobile App offers real-time monitoring of crucial network parameters such as signal strength, throughput, latency, and roaming between multiple APs. As you move around your space, you can track these metrics and ensure a reliable network connection throughout.

Additionally, the 'Floorplan Mapper' feature (available on LiDAR-equipped mobile devices) allows you to record signal strength in different areas, helping you visualize your WiFi coverage and understand device roaming patterns between access points.
