Although it‘s possible to pair Nanit to a mobile hotspot, you may experience problems resulting from data caps, overage charges, poor cellular signal, and connection speeds. For these reasons, we don’t encourage the use of Nanit on a mobile hotspot.
If you plan on pairing your Nanit to a mobile hotspot, we recommend you first check with your hotspot manufacturer and service provider, to determine if your hardware and service contract can sustain a dependable internet connection. Additionally, we recommend you change your Bandwidth usage settings in the Nanit app from “Best” to “Eco”.

Here are a few things you should keep in mind when choosing the right device and service:
- Please be aware that some cellular data plans, including unlimited plans, have data caps that may obstruct your service. If you reach your allowed data cap, your cellular service may shut off or slow down; depending on your service provider terms.
- If you're using a mobile phone as your hotspot, incoming and outgoing calls may interrupt Nanit’s connection.
- Depending on your location and network provider, you may experience low signal strength, resulting in slow connection speeds or loss of service.
- For best results, we suggest using a mobile hotspots that supports LTE.
- Nanit works best with the 2.4GHz Wi-Fi band, so a mobile hotspot that supports this band is recommended.
