HiveRadar Wireless Site Survey software is a powerful and user-friendly wireless site survey software tool for collecting, visualizing and analyzing 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi data.


HiveRadar Wireless Site Surveyor is the only professional app for wireless site surveys, Wi-Fi analysis, and troubleshooting on Mac OS X. It's a FREE Wi-Fi analyzer. No need to be a network expert to improve your home or office Wi-Fi today! All you need is your MacBook running Mac OS X 10.6+ and works over any 802.11 network.
When working on a Wi-Fi network that will provide an optimal coverage, you'll need a solid research and understanding the radio frequency behavior at the spot. The effective way to obtain this information is a wireless site survey. It will reveal areas of channel interference and dead zones, and will help you tremendously to build a solid network.
The main goal of a WIFI site survey is determining the feasibility of implementing a wireless network in a specific area and finding the best spots for access points and other equipment like cables and antennas. With the help of site survey you will know what type of equipment to get and where to install it.
Wireless Site survey is also an important part of wifi security analysis. HiveRadar Wireless Site Surveyor is a perfect helper for network security specialists in locating and eliminating rogue access points, detecting unauthorized workstations, avoiding cross-channel interference and getting rid of false-positive intrusion alerts. With HiveRadar Wireless Site Surveyor one can also check the security settings (Open, WEP, WPA/WPA2 Personal/Enterprise), non-broadcasting SSIDs and WiFi signal strength. With all this work done well the wireless signal is less likely to spill outside, where a war driver can get their hands on it.
With its advanced collection and visualization of data HiveRadar Wireless Site Surveyor provides its users with a comprehensive and complete WiFi site survey solution.

Visualize Your Wireless Network

Efficiency-wise, your Wi-Fi network needs hotspots placed correctly and wireless channels assigned properly.
The visual Wi-Fi map you get with HiveRadar Wireless Site Surveyor lets you see all dead zones without coverage and optimize hotspots placements. You can adjust channels load and decide how to use them better.

Wireless Network Planning

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