Almond+ Looks To Reinvent The Router

Routers are like printers. With technology advancing at a blazing pace, they remain some of the most difficult, expensive, and frustrating pieces of gadgets we still use. Securifi is a company that is working to redesign and rethink the way we use wireless routers with the Almond+.

The Almond+ is roughly the size of an iPad and uses a 2.8 inch TFT screen to control all of its functions. Gone are the days of configuring and setting up your wi-fi via your PC or Mac. Plug it in. Follow the on screen directions and you’re set to go. It's as easy as that and your parents will love it. On top of being a router, it comes with ZigBee and Z-Wave, technologies that allow you to control lights and lock/unlock your door wirelessly. Check out the tech specs below for more information.
