Extend Your WiFi Range with Indoor and Outdoor Access Points

Extend Your WiFi Range with Indoor and Outdoor Access Points

In today’s modern world we want to be able to access WiFi anywhere and everywhere.  It is no longer a luxury it is simply a necessity of today’s technology-driven world.  When you are home you may notice that your WiFi signal is weak in certain areas of your home or when you are outside.  But, it does not have to be that way.  You can actually extend your WiFi range by implementing indoor and outdoor access points at strategic locations.

Choosing the right location for your router and access points can be challenging because there are variety of factors that go into strategic placement.  The best way to optimize your WiFi range with indoor and outdoor access points is to have them professionally installed by an experienced technician.  While one would logically assume that if you place a router or access point in the middle of your home, it should be able to send its signal in all directions within the home, providing WiFi access throughout.  But, things like walls, furniture and other large barriers can impact the quality of the signal.  For this reason, it may be best to place access points at strategic locations in multiple places within your home as part of a larger home WiFi network.

And, if you want to extend your WiFi signal outside so that you can work or have optimal connection for your outdoor smart devices and smart enabled outdoor features you may run into further barriers.  CNet elaborates on how to extend your WiFi network outdoors safely and effectively to maximize connectivity, “With the increasing number of outdoor smart devices like lighting, security cameras and garage door openers, you need to be able to extend your Wi-Fi beyond your home’s exterior walls. It can be tricky, but with the right hardware, you’ll be streaming video by the pool and posting pics to social media in the yard in no time…An outdoor Wi-Fi extender, sometimes called a wireless access point or wireless repeater, is perhaps the most straightforward option, since it’s the only solution that involves installing hardware outside…These devices are made to be exposed to the elements year round and have hardware capable of communicating with your router wirelessly in order to give you great Wi-Fi coverage outside your home.”
