Mappa Signa

Problem Statement

The idea for this product comes from the constant issue of poor Wi-Fi signal throughout homes. Most homes have just one access point as that is what Internet Service Providers give by default. Unfortunately, homes are generally filled with walls, furniture and are multi-floored. Those all work together in hindering access to your favorite shows on Netflix. Our solution to this is a device which is able to create a map of the signal strength of your home Wi-Fi and suggest a location which would maximize coverage of your access point, or if you’re deciding where to place a range extender it can show you where to place the second point. If Game of Thrones was spoiled for you because the tweets flooded in while your video buffered due to poor Wi-Fi signal, this could be the device for you!
