Does your wireless device signal weaken when you step away from your router? TP-Link’s Deco M5 three-pack Whole-Home Wi-Fi system uses three identical units to communicate and push your home’s Wi-Fi signal to every corner. Your wireless device will remain connected to the closest unit to deliver fast, reliable Wi-Fi. This is how mesh Wi-Fi works. Instead of having one router push out a signal from one location, the three units act in concert to extend the signal with seamless precision.
You don’t have to tolerate those dead zones or weak Wi-Fi areas in your home any longer. With an app-based setup and management on either iOS or Android, administering this network won’t require serious tech know-how. Know what devices are connected, and how much bandwidth they take up, and even apply parental controls to keep kids in line at the right times.
FAR AND WIDE COVERAGE
The Deco system doesn’t work like a standard router and Wi-Fi extender combo. The system basically consists of three routers that use Adaptive Routing Technology (ART) to connect devices to the closest Deco unit.
A single Deco unit covers up to 1,500 sq. ft., with all three covering up to 4,500 sq. ft. together. Want to go bigger? You can link up to nine Deco units for maximum coverage in a larger home, letting you scale up if you need to.
That means you can walk from room to room without experiencing any lag or worrying about whether the connection will hold up from one end of the house to the other. You can strategically place each unit with help from the app for the best possible mesh performance.
SAFETY AND SECURITY
Adding some peace of mind with security built-in always helps. Each Deco unit comes with three years of free antivirus protection powered by Trend Micro®. It works right from setup and extends the protection from cyber threats to all the devices connected to the network.
It doesn’t matter if the device has antivirus protection already or not, each one will have a layer of security from malware. Bi-weekly antivirus updates keep the software fresh and your family safe from new threats. The router-level security Deco offers will keep those smart devices that do not have antivirus protection, like many smart home devices, secured, and that helps to keep your family safe.
Use the Deco app to see what threats were neutralized, plus which devices those threats may have targeted in a page that’s simple to view and understand.
With customizable parental controls, you can use the app to manage, limit and monitor your child’s Internet access. You have the flexibility to control which devices to cut off access to, or to schedule a block of time to keep the devices offline. In addition, you’ll have the ability to restrict access to specific websites, including popular social media sites.
View monthly usage reports itemizing what was blocked and where the most time was spent online. You can keep up with what your kids are looking at and how much time they spend online on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.
Restrict access by giving each of your kids a profile so you can decide what and when they can access the content they want. Internet access is now a privilege and with the Deco M5, you can limit your child’s internet access and allocate internet access allowances using that each child’s profile. Deco gives you complete control.
