NetSpot for Mac is a comprehensive wireless survey tool for Mac users, which allows collecting, visualizing and analyzing Wi-Fi data using any MacBook. In just a couple of clicks you can load your area map, point to your location on the map and start collecting Wi-Fi data around you.

Note: Instead of buying a license for this app, at Setapp you could get access to this one plus another 230+ commonly used macOS apps for only $9.99/month. CLICK HERE to download and install all the apps you need for a single monthly price!

NetSpot for macOS creates heatmaps of your wireless network, showing you dead zones without coverage, so that you can place hotspots (Access Points) correctly. Using the visualized map of collected wireless data, you can also see channel overlap, which will help you to optimize your Wi-Fi network.

Features and Highlights

Visualize Your Wireless Network
Efficiency-wise, your Wi-Fi network needs hotspots placed correctly and radio channels assigned in a proper way: the visual Wi-Fi map you get thanks to NetSpot lets you see all dead zones without coverage and optimize hotspots' placements; you can see channels' load and decide how to use them ideally.

Wireless Network Planning
The tool is also an amazing wireless survey tool for Wi-Fi planning. Load a map, collect some wireless site survey data, build a comprehensive heatmap of your network. Now viewing each channel separately is as easy as a pie. Once you locate an empty channel with no wireless networks - it's the optimal selection for a new Wi-Fi network. The app also lets you easily select channels for new Wi-Fi hotspots with minimal signal to noise ratio.

Analyze your Wi-Fi Coverage
The app is the easiest native wireless site survey software for Mac. You need just a few clicks to load your office plan or area map and start a network site survey. Just point to where you are on the map and the tool starts measuring wireless signal right away, move around, and collect Wi-Fi data. That's it: now you have all the needed info to analyze radio signal leakages, discover noise sources, map channel usage, locate effective access points, etc.

Native Cocoa app, simple and fast
WLAN site survey software has always been something for experts only. The app changes that today! The app wireless survey tool is really simple and accessible to Mac users of all levels. Simple deployment, no need for specific hardware, runs on any MacBook with Mac OS X 10.6+... it's a breeze to use. Net Spot is always up-to-date and is really small in size, only ~3MB to download, it brings the power of professional wireless survey software into your house, office or campus. Runs on a standard MacBook. Uses standard 802.11a/b/g/n wireless network adapters. Actually free!

Note: Requires 64-bit processor. Some features like active scanning, professional visualization and advanced network management are disabled.
