Switching lanes could ease your Wi-Fi traffic. Follow these steps to change your Wi-Fi channel:

  1. Login to your router’s settings (refer to your router’s manual for detailed instructions).
  2. Navigate to the Wi-Fi settings and find the channel selection.
  3. Switch to a different channel, save the settings, and then reboot your router.

5. Inspect Your System’s Antenna

The antenna is key in communicating with the monitoring center. Here’s how to check it:

  1. Find the antenna on your SimpliSafe base station. It’s usually located on the back.
  2. Ensure it’s securely connected and doesn’t show signs of damage.

6. Relocate Your Base Station

A better spot could make a world of difference. If your base station is too far from your router or blocked by walls, your connection might falter. Follow these steps:

  1. Identify a new location for your base station. Aim for a spot closer to your router and free from obstructions.
  2. Unplug your base station, move it to the new location, and plug it back in.
  3. Give it a few minutes to reestablish connection and check if the issue is resolved.

7. Check for Interference from Other Devices

Electronic devices can unwittingly be mischief-makers, causing interference with your SimpliSafe’s Wi-Fi signal. Here’s how you can troubleshoot this:

  1. Identify devices around your base station that might cause interference, like microwaves, cordless phones, or baby monitors.
  2. Switch off these devices one by one and check if your SimpliSafe connection improves.
  3. If it does, you’ve found your culprit! Consider relocating either the interfering device or your base station to prevent future signal issues.
