Think of Pods in a similar way that you think of light bulbs, and place Pods everywhere you want WiFi. For most homes we recommend 1 per room.
1. Move Pods closer to each other
Remember that Pods work as a team, so they want to be close enough to communicate with one another. Consider distances between 10 and 20ft, which can vary largely depending on the building materials used in your home. Homes with dense walls need Pods closer together than those with light construction.
Even moving a pod to an opposite wall in the same room can help create a stronger and more reliable connection for that pod.
2. Hardwire Pods to your router or switch
If your home is wired and you have available ports, that connect back to a switch or router, in other areas of your home, hardwiring Pods to those ports will improve performance.
3. Keep Pods in the open and away from metallic objects
- Avoid metal or other reflective objects in between your pods
- Avoid obstacles in the way of connecting Pods (such as kitchen and laundry appliances, metallic piping, metallic waste bins, or large mirrors)
- No huge furniture right in front of the Pod
