Starting at IFA 2015, devolo will offer the possibility of using a free app to determine the perfect location to deploy a WiFi repeater. Furthermore, the app allows users to test the WiFi performance at home in general. Is the WiFi signal strong enough in your daughter‘s room or do you need to upgrade your equipment? The new devolo WiFi app answers these and similar questions.<br/><br/>After being downloaded from the Google Play Store, the app guides the user through the process step-by-step. First, it establishes a connection with the router. Then the corresponding smartphone is moved further and further away from the router while a digital display notifies the user of the respective WiFi signal strength. The mobile vibrates once the app determines the optimal location for a WiFi repeater. The user can then find the nearest wall socket and install a new or existing WiFi repeater. Users simply looking to find out how strong their WiFi is in any given room will enjoy the second menu item. In this case, the app provides information about the current WiFi performance. The app offers suggestions for improvements in case of poor performance.<br/><br/>This lets users make tremendous improvements to their WiFi network in no time without the need for any specialised computer skills, such as by using a devolo WiFi Repeater. Visitors, dealers and journalists can view an initial demonstration of the app at IFA 2015 in Hall 3.2 at Stand 225.<br/><br/>
