Planning and optimizing

Want to build out a network? Start by adding locations to your network and associate them with the associated contacts.

Use the Line of Sight tool to view possible obstacles that can prevent your hotspot of earning more. This includes buildings, mountains, terrain, ...


Monitoring and managing

Monitor hotspot info closely. See if a hotspot is active and get info about rewards, witnesses, beacons, challengers, antenna gain, ...

Manage your installs in your workspace. Installs represent locations where a hotspot is/was installed. This comes in very handy to set up commission reports.

Hotspot status

Use labels to organize all your data and filter for default labels or labels created by yourself.

Team & Community Collaboration

Collaborate with others in your workspace by adding them as a member or admin. Add data together and keep of track of one another by adding comments. Comments can only be viewed by team members and are workspace-bound. Easily @ collaborators so that they receive an email.

You can also get in touch with other Helium hotspot owners through the "owner" tab on a hotspot details page.
