What is the range of Roost Smart Devices?

Roost Smart Devices have the same approximate range as the Wi-Fi on your smartphone. Grab your smartphone, enable Wi-Fi, and hold your phone near where you want to place your device. If you have above a medium-low Wi-Fi signal on your smartphone, a Roost device should work fine at this location.

After you place your Roost device in its location, you'll be able to see an indication of Wi-Fi signal strength in your Roost app once it checks in. Please note that the Roost devices check into the Roost cloud once every 24 hours, or 24 hours after an alarm event. 

From your home screen in the Roost app, you can see an indication of Wi-Fi signal strength at the time the device LAST checked in. Please note, this is not a real-time indicator of Wi-Fi signal strength. In the image below, the Roost device named 'Dishwasher' has a "high" Wi-Fi signal strength (green) and the device named 'Dining room' has a "low" Wi-Fi signal strength (red). 


If a device on your home screen shows a red Wi-Fi signal strength, this may indicate that your device will have trouble checking in.
