Diagnose signal issues and improve responsiveness of your Bluetooth based HomeKit devices with HomeScan.
• Improve your HomeKit accessories signal strength
Use HomeScan to optimally place your Bluetooth accessories within your home, reducing latency issues and signal interference. Peak and average signal strength allow you to diagnose existing devices, while the graph shows you signal strength over a set period of time.
• Use it with your HomePod or Apple TV
Simply place your device on your HomeKit Hub, choose the accessory you wish to diagnose then watch the signal strength shown on the display.
• Take it on the go with the Apple Watch app
Take the signal strength meter on the go with the included Apple Watch app to find the best location to put that door sensor.
• Audible readouts for ease of use
HomeScan can call out the current signal strength audibly to guide you through placing your device.
HomeScan has a fresh coat of paint along with support for dark mode along with multiple bug fixes.
Ratings and Reviews
It would be useful if I could set the output to be sorted by signal strength. That would let me get right next to a device so it appears at the top of the list, and then select it so I can monitor the signal as I move around the house.
Also, instead of ‘Unknown’ it would be good to see a device’s MAC address (if it’s available) so I can tell one device from the next.
The “Support” link off the App Store doesn’t take me to an actual support page.
Developer Response ,
Hi, thanks for the feedback! I'll look into the possibility of adding the sort feature.
I sadly cannot show MAC address as Apple's Bluetooth system doesn't allow developers access to this information.
Thanks for the note about the support link from the App Store, I will look into this for the future. I suggest using the provided in-app support instead.
Exactly what I needed to understand the signal of my HomeKit switch. If they have any ideas for WiFi HomeKit devices, it would be great too. I think understanding the home environment is key to getting successful HomeKit adoption. As companies start to support Bluetooth 5, it may be helpful to understand that difference in the signals.
Some of the unnamed accessories seem to remain a little bit obscure but it’s a neat app.
