This can vary greatly based on your internet performance, router brand/specifications, and your environment. In general, we recommend 30-40 feet from the nearest access point. 

Testing Wi-Fi Strength

Using your phone to determine the Wi-Fi strength is a great point of reference. Connect to your desired network and put your phone near where you plan to install bluebot. If you see less than 2 bars of Wi-Fi Signal, bluebot will likely have a hard time staying connected, and you should consider adding a Wi-Fi repeater for best results. 

If you see 2 or more bars and are still having trouble connecting, it could be a result of interference. Troubleshoot your Wi-Fi with these tips.
