Through walls of its new Deco p7 router, TP-Link can now ensure whole-home connectivity. According to the company, the IFTTT-enabled Deco P7 is the world’s most powerful hybrid mesh and powerline system, which delivers ultra fast, secure and stable WiFi coverage. Integrating powerline technology, the Deco P7 uses the home’s electrical wiring to create stronger connections between Deco units. WiFi integrated by powerline acts as link aggregation and boosts bandwidth effectively.
Mesh technology means dead zones are a thing of the past, while peace of mind is top of mind with TP-Link’s security solution HomeCare, powered by TrendMicro which includes parental controls.
Deco P7 ships in the UK with two units that are strategically placed around the home to form one unified network. WiFi devices seamlessly switch between the two Deco units as they move through a building for a fast, stable, secure internet experience.
With Homecare the Deco P7 protects a home network from data breaches and hacks with three years of free antivirus and malware protection powered by TrendMicro. It also ensures robust firewall protection, content filtering and state of the art parenting controls via the free Deco app available on iOS and Android.
Set up for the Deco P7 is simple. More than 100 devices can connect simultaneously and receive the same QoS (quality of service). Or users can tailor their network and programme the Deco to prioritise bandwidth for certain types of device or usage.
Deco P7 is Amazon Alexa enabled, which means QoS features such as 'prioritise gaming', 'enable guest network' and 'speed test' are easily conducted via voice command.
TP-Link UK Country Manager, Will Liu, said: “The appetite for streaming is driving demand for high speed and stable Wi-Fi. Customers no longer put up with poor wireless connections as it's such an integral part of everyday life.
"Deco P7 offers customers the best of all worlds, all the benefits of whole home WiFi, the added security of TP-Link HomeCare plus the added convenience of powerline technology to rid your home of the most stubborn WiFi dead zones.”
