• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I FINALLY got the Siren app for Android...Thank You Lord!!... LOL
So just a quick question from a fairly new scanner enthusiast. What is the difference between using Infrastructure mode versus Access Point mode and why would I choose one over the other? I can't seem to find this info anywhere. Thanks

Android app was just released so some of us are just getting to set it up and use, and when I did a search I got zero results.

Access Point Mode allows you to connect directly from the scanner to the phone/tablet without a wireless router involved. Think maybe having the scanner in the car and wanting to control with a smart phone/tablet like a remote head.

Infrastructure Mode is what you would use when there is a wireless router involved. Scanner AND phone/tablet would connect to the wireless router and then communicate with each other.
