*Update 1/21/16 – They’ve raised the price. Stay tuned.*
This one is definitely worth a look in our opinion, and not just because the price is almost $60 less than we could find it for anywhere else. Imagine setting up and controlling your WiFi with a hub that controls everything with simple to use touch screen controls Now that’s an advancement we like.
NewEgg (at eBay’s site) offers the Securifi Almond+ Long Range Touchscreen Wireless Router (model ALMP-BLK-US) for just $179.99 with free shipping. As is often the case, this one is available in limited quantities, and could expire at any time.
The Almond+ uses a touchscreen that can be used to set up your network directly, and without a computer. Set up time is less than three minutes for a standard network. The range is up to 5000 square feet, so you can get great wireless from practically anywhere in the house. Multiple Almond+ routers can be used in concert. AC1750 Wi Fi on dual bands also creates great connectivity. Four LAN Gigabit and a pair of USB (3.0) ports are available to you. It also works like Fiber Optic, Cable or DSL connections from pretty much every provider around.
For security, this model can be controlled from your smartphone, and connect with various automation hub set ups.
