Zmodo began operation in 2009, since then the company has developed a long list of innovative Smart-Connected devices. The Pivot Security Camera and the Torch Pro Light Bulb are only two examples of Zmodo’s intuitive Smart Home products. With this being said, many consumers experience issues with these products, which is more often linked to their existing wireless LAN network. Weak wireless signals interfere with the operation of all the wireless devices connected to the network. There are also other factors that will cause interference with wireless signals, including:
- Devices utilizing an RF range of 2.4 GHz (microwaves and cordless phones)
- Physical objects (large trees, tall buildings, masonry, and steel walls)
- Electrical devices (refrigerators, computers, fans, and lighting fixtures)
- Environmental factors (lightning and dense fog)
- Indoor obstacles (glass, furniture, paneling, drywall, mirrors, and fish aquariums)

The optimal range that the wireless signal can travel will basically depend on the router. In today’s world, most individuals spend a large portion of their time connected to the Internet. This is not to mention the many wireless devices connected to the same network.
