Your typical WiFi detector will only show the presence of a signal and relative signal strength. This Wi-Fi Digital Hotspotter, from Canary Wireless, has a 12-character LCD that provides information on signal availability and strength as well as essential network information, including SSID, security status and channel. When multiple networks are present the LCD will allow you to scroll through information for each network.

Implications - As consumers become more technologically fluent, they will require more information to optimize their user experiences. As such, more technology companies are offering devices that relay much more data to users. This creates a sense of transparency, which in turn strengthens customer relations with a company.
