Asus Blue Cave

details: AC2600 Dual-Band WiFi Router for Smart Home
hardware type: Wireless Router
date added: 2018-01-05
On Blue Cave the four fully-optimized antennas outperform some external antennas by up to 28%. The location and orientation of the antennas relative to each other and to the internal circuitry was carefully decided by experiment to give the best possible WiFi signal in all directions: the widest coverage was attained with three vertical antennas and one horizontal.

The dual ASUS-designed heatsinks on the main circuit board maximize the surface area available for cooling, while taking full advantage of the shape of the interior space.

Blue Cave includes Advanced Parental Controls to give you total peace of mind, with commercial grade security for your home network and comprehensive, easy control of the online experience for each family member and each device, all via the mobile app.

Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) blocks all common internet-based attacks.

Blue Cave works with IFTTT and Amazon Alexa, so you can integrate Blue Cave into your smart home with ease to make your life easier.

State-of-the-art parental controls let you block specific categories of mobile apps and websites — and apply these settings to all devices belonging to a family member — while allowing free access to the rest of the internet.
