How close do I need to be to use RadBox?

Let's break it down!

Effective Distance

The RadBox unit sets up its own sick Wi-Fi signal that connects to your mobile device. You can get a safe connection up to 300 feet away, but we generally see solid connections up to 450 feet away from the system. But, a few factors can mess with the range, such as:
Battery strength: Make sure your device is charged up, bro.
Weather: Yeah, sometimes Mother Nature can play tricks on your signal strength.
Line of sight: Keep it unobstructed for the best results.
Other mobile devices in the area: The more devices, the more potential interference.

Boost that signal

If you wanna maximize the signal strength, try raising the unit off the ground by about a foot. Grab a cinderblock, a 5-gallon bucket, or whatever works to keep it elevated. It'll give your signal a little extra boost.

Show and go

Once you hit that launch button, the show gets downloaded into the RadBox unit. That means you can peace out from the unit with your device and enjoy the show with your homies. Just keep in mind, if you disconnect from the unit, you won't be able to use the emergency stop feature. If you wanna use that, you gotta get closer to the unit and reconnect. And hey, don't get too close to an active fireworks show, that's just common sense, dude.

Use Airplane Mode

We highly recommend putting your controlling mobile device in airplane mode. When it's in airplane mode, it won't try to connect to your mobile data instead of the RadBox unit. So, keep it in airplane mode for a smooth experience.

Get ready to rock the RadBox from a distance, my friend! If you have any more questions or need help, hit us up. Stay rad and enjoy the show!
