What is the KestrelMet Wi-Fi Data Transmission Range?

Transmission up to 1000 feet line of sight. Obstructions will affect the transmission range.

Recommendations for KestrelMet Wi-Fi Installation:

  • The station should be mounted in a location with strong Wi-Fi signal strength.
  • The KestrelMet 6000 Wi-Fi weather station can ONLY connect to a 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi network.
  • You can use third-party tools such as a Wi-Fi analyzer app to plan an optimal location for your station. After your station is registered, you can use the signal indicators on AmbientWeather.net/Devices for live Wi-Fi signal readings.
  • Avoid obstructions like buildings, trees, and structures in between your router and the KestrelMet Wi-Fi installation site.
