Mac Format - - CONTENTS -

We’ve looked at a wide range of home au­to­ma­tion kit in the last few months, from smart light­ing to se­cu­rity cam­eras and ther­mostats, and much

more be­sides. One thing many of these de­vices have in com­mon is reliance on Wi-Fi to con­nect them to the In­ter­net of Things (IoT).

This ex­plo­sion of de­vices means that there’s ever more pres­sure on our home Wi-Fi net­works, whether from stream­ing video from Netflix, play­ing games on­line, or your kids vlog­ging their teenage angst to the world on YouTube. Wi-Fi tech has to evolve to take the strain of all this dig­i­tal com­mu­ni­ca­tion, and we’re cur­rently at a tip­ping point where the next gen­er­a­tion of Wi-Fi is about to ar­rive. The lat­est Wi-Fi routers in­clude sev­eral new fea­tures that can im­prove both speed and re­li­a­bil­ity, so here’s our guide to the next-gen Wi-Fi kit you need to power your smart home.
