The following group of Wi-Fi Heatmap applications are accessed by clicking on the Location option under the “Monitor” section of the OmniVista Cirrus Menu:

Wi-Fi Heatmap

Wi-Fi heatmap is a visual representation of the wireless signal coverage and strength of Access Points connected to the network.
Creating a Wi-Fi heat map allows network administrators to visualize the real signal strengths of their wireless infrastructure, and more quickly understand which AP clients have limited or missing Wi-Fi connections.

On clicking on any of the wireless AP device, you can view the detailed summary of the device.

Current Client Density

The heatmap is based on density of clients (If the density is high it is shown Red, medium density Yellow, Low density Green etc).
The heatmaps are calculated using the number of devices detected at any time. The colors represent the areas on the map where there is the most "presence." The intensity is based on how many devices were detected during the time period. Areas may be dark red because there were lots of devices detected.

The Current Client Density can be accessed by clicking Current Client Density on the Location option under the “Monitor” section of the OmniVista Cirrus Menu:,

You can filter the view of the Current Clients Heatmaps by selecting or unselecting the following layers:

  • Connected Clients Heatmaps

  • Unconnected Clients Heatmap

  • Client Marker

  • Devices

  • Zones

  • Walls

Client Density History

In Client History page, Total Dwell time can be calculated for each client, who have connected to at least 1 AP presented in the zone, within the selected time period. On a click on a particular zone, the trend view of the client density in this zone will be displayed. (using the time range selected).

The Client Density History can be accessed by clicking Client Density History on the Location option under the “Monitor” section of the OmniVista Cirrus Menu:

You can filter the view of the Current Density History by selecting or unselecting the following layers:

  • Devices

  • Zones

  • Floor Area

  • Walls
