Test the location for the baby unit

If you plan to install your baby unit in a designated location, and use your home Wi-Fi network to connect your video monitor, you need to test which of your selected monitoring areas within the house have good Wi-Fi signal strength. After you have powered on your parent unit, you can use your parent unit’s Wi-Fi signal strength indicator to assist in checking. Once you have identified the suitable location, you can install your baby unit. Adjust the distance between your baby unit and the Wi-Fi router if needed.

TIP:
Depending on surroundings and obstructing factors, such as the effect distance and internal walls have on signal strength, you may experience reduced Wi-Fi signal. To improve the Wi-Fi signal strength, adjust the distance or direction of your parent unit. Check with your parent unit again.
