Keewifi Router

Mac Format - - GADGETS - £$99 (about £65)

What is it? Some of us en­joy tin­ker­ing with routers, oth­ers just want to plug in and go surf­ing in seconds. Keewifi aims to be the sim­plest router to set up yet and it se­cures mo­bile de­vices just by hold­ing them near the router for au­then­ti­ca­tion. It uses the lat­est 802.11ac wire­less stan­dard and thanks to its prox­im­ity tech­nol­ogy, only de­vices that are au­then­ti­cated by be­ing phys­i­cally next to the router can con­nect to the net­work. No pass­words, no ad­min panel, noth­ing! When’s it due? Sum­mer 2015. Why are we ex­cited? This Kick­s­tarter project is run­ning at more than twice its tar­get goal and could be the first of a new type of ‘no setup’ routers. As well as its prox­im­ity se­cu­rity, Keewifi also sports Beam­form­ing tech­nol­ogy that tar­gets Wi-Fi de­vices and boosts strength based on their po­si­tion, en­sur­ing a stronger sig­nal where you need it most.
