EnGenius Launches Consumer Wi-Fi Mesh Network System called MESHdot Kit

By Ken Briodagh December 18, 2018

EnGenius Technologies, a multinational networking company known for offering networking solutions for both consumers and businesses, recently announced the long-awaited Wi-Fi mesh network system called MESHdot Kit. The bundle comes with an elegant wireless mesh router called EMR3500, and MESHdot (EMD11), one of the smallest AC1300 mesh nodes in the world. Both products included in the MESHdot Kit bundle are powered by some of Qualcomm's latest consumer technology. The new Wi-Fi mesh network system is designed to be easy to set up and be a direct solution for budget-conscious families wanting to enjoy single-network Wi-Fi signal across the entire house and backyard.

Available to both Android and Apple devices, the new EnMesh app reportedly takes only a few minutes to create a robust Wi-Fi network. The EnGenius AC1300 mesh router EMR3500 comes with built-in 360-degree high-performance antenna, and the plug-and-play compact MESHdot gives consumers flexibility to cover spotty Wi-Fi areas making sure the home network covers every corner of the entire house.

Consumers who share Wi-Fi passwords with home visitors will no longer have to look for ways to restrict access to their local network by changing Wi-Fi passwords or using complicated software - with EnGenius' latest MESHdot Kit, the creation of the stable guest Wi-Fi network is only a few clicks away. The MESHdot Kit network gives real-time data about everyone connected to the network, and the ability to create and enforce rules such as silencing other users by banning them from the network or limiting the hours of internet availability. The parental control settings also allow consumers to set up weekly schedules, or prevent users from being able to access social media, search engines, video content or custom URLs. Users can also use EnMesh to remotely monitor EnGenius gateway/router usage or disconnect devices connected to the home network.

“We are on a quest to break the stigma that mesh network equipment is either unaffordable for home use, bad-looking, or hard to set up,” said MC Leo, general manager, EnGenius Technologies. “By offering the MESHdot Kit to the world, we are responding to a market-demand for plug-and-play affordable, eye-pleasing products able to support stable mesh network that can cover an entire house. And this is just the beginning, in 2019 we will continue to introduce EnGenius products that help smart homes operate smoothly.”


The IoT Evolution Expo, and collocated events, IoT Evolution Health, LPWAN Expo, The Smart City Event, and IIoT Conference, will take place Jan. 29 to Feb 1 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Visit IoTEvolutionExpo.com to register now.
