Ubiquiti is a big name in networking solutions. Ranging in solutions from heavy duty industrial mesh networks that stretch over kilometers all the way down to the humble home. This give them a big advantage in knowledge over the newcomers to the market.
The Amplifi Home Mesh Network solution is a prime example of their experience. While not as sophisticated or advanced as a full Ubiquiti Unifi network setup, it does provide the basics, and a few extras, in a system that is easy setup, provides great coverage for the average home, and even easier to add to it later to extend your range further.
The Main unit itself has 4 Ethernet ports built in. A touchscreen that can be turned on and off and will show you all the basic network statistics you need. The 2 Antenna add-ons are simple plug-in devices that can be directed and aimed for better connection to each other.
The Amplifi system even has built in diagnostics, so you can always check and correct any issues with range and coverage.
How about a feature to turn off the WiFi, to all or just a few devices. Keep the kids off the WiFi until homework is done, or kick them off so they come down for dinner. Easy with the Amplifi app.
How about a separate Guest network that you can easily turn on and off to allow friends to connect to the internet, but not allow them access to your private network. Easy, with the one touch guest mode button.
All the traditional features such as setting a static ip or monitoring individual traffic of each device is present too.
Note: Amplifi is a router mesh network solution. It does not replace your modem, only the router. If you still have adsl, you will need to keep your current modem and simply add the Amplifi Hub to this. Existing modems should be set to bridge mode. But dont worry, Amplifi is compatible with the NBN also. So upgrading to NBN in the future is even easier, as your network will simply stay the same. No need to reconfigure every device and add them to a new router, just unplug your adsl modem and plug in the NBN modem.
Still sounds a bit much, take advantage of our installation service. Not only will we set up the Amplifi Network for you, giving you best in-home coverage, but we can run you through the basics if the app and help configure all your other devices to the new network.
