With Homedale, you can scan for Wi-Fi / WLAN Access Points and monitor their signal strength. The details window shows all ‘Information elements’ and their decoded data.
Use the detected access points with Google Geolocation and Mozilla Location Service to locate yourself.
Homedale works with 802.11a/b/g/n/ac/ax wireless networks in the 2.4 GHz, 5 GHz and 6 GHz frequency bands using 20, 40, 80 and 160 MHz width channels.


See an overview of all available access points with their signal strength, security [WEP/WPA/WPA2/WPA3], network name (SSID), BSSID, vendor based on MAC address, channel, supported data rates and much more.
Details from information elements (IE) advertised by the access points are parsed and shown.


Signal Strength

You can also monitor the signal strength of selected access points in a graph over the time. With a right mouse click, you can start logging to a text file and create a screenshot.


Frequency Usage

See the usage of all Wi-Fi channels and find the optimal channel for your access point.



Make a right mouse click to connect and disconnect from a Wi-Fi / WLAN access point. The blue icon shows the currently connected access point.
