Think of Pods in a similar way that you think of light bulbs, and place Pods everywhere you want Wi-Fi. For most homes we recommend 1 per room.
If a Pod displays “Poor Connection” and you are noticing an impact, there are a few steps you can take to improve its health:
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 around 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.
- Position the Pods on the inside walls of the home to improve performance.
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, hardwiring Pods to those ports to other areas in your home will improve performance.
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
If an issue arises with the connection health of one of your Pods, you will be notified through the App. Otherwise, you can view the connection health of a Pod at any time by selecting any blank space of the App’s landing screen, followed by the Pod you’d like to check.
