Weak Network Test of Wi-Fi Device

Last Updated on : 2021-01-20 03:51:40download

This topic describes how to conduct a weak network test on a Wi-Fi device.

What is a weak network

A weak network refers to a network with poor signal strength. Generally, a Wi-Fi signal strength below -75 dBm can be considered a weak network.

Why to do a weak network test

For proper usage and control of the Wi-Fi device in a complex environment and weak signal strength, as well as troubleshooting of hardware design and antenna problems.

How to do a weak network test

This topic describes a weak network test by setting up a real working environment. Two methods are included:

  • Increase the distance between the device and the router to form a weak network.
  • Separate the device and the router with a wall to form a weak network.

Test method

Method 1: Increase the distance between the device and the router

  1. Connect the device to the router with the Tuya Smart app.
  2. Start the app, enter Device Details > Device Information to check the signal strength of the device.
  3. Increase the distance between the device and the router. A signal strength below -75 dBm is considered a weak network.
  4. Under the condition of a weak network, test the basic functions including device control and pairing, and check whether the device works properly.

Method 2: Partition test

  1. Connect the device to the router with the Tuya Smart app.
  2. Start the app, enter Device Details > Device Information to check the signal strength of the device.
  3. Select the number of walls accordingly, and place the router and device on each side of the wall.
  4. Increase the distance between the device and the router. A signal strength below -75 dBm is considered a weak network.
  5. Under the condition of a weak network, test the basic functions including device control and pairing, and check whether the device works properly.
