The EMR3500 router uses a 360° antenna that helps it connect to up eight MESHdot nodes on the wireless network. The MESHdot node itself is a plug-and-play device that plugs directly into a wall outlet and uses EnGenius’ EnMesh technology to provides wireless connectivity to mobile devices around the home.
As a whole, the MESHdot kit includes familiar features including automatic firmware updating, guest networking, and parental controls such as getting real-time data on who’s on the network, creating and maintaining rules to banning connections, enforce scheduled internet access times, or restricting access to social media, search engines and online video content.
MESHdot Kit includes two apps used to install, manage, access and monitor the new wireless system. First, the EnMesh app is used to install, control access, prioritize and manage devices, while the EnFile app adds cloud-like access and file management features to USB connected media.
EnGenius’ MESHdot Kit is scheduled for release to the consumer market in Q1 2019 at a price of $99 MSRP.
