Integrate smart Wi-Fi with your smart home.
For everything to connect properly, you need a reliable wireless network. Bandwidth varies depending on house size and the number of connected devices. That’s why it’s necessary to select a good internet speed for you.
Make an even smarter move and get whole-home wireless connectivity. Midco Wi-Fi delivers corner-to-corner coverage with continual optimization based on usage, home layout and neighborhood activity. For example, your kids’ gaming setup might be nicely tucked away in the basement but having your modem in your upstairs home office might cause a disconnect. Lagging gaming? No fun for anyone in the house.
Sophisticated pods evenly spread Wi-Fi throughout spaces, allowing you to get a better signal – even in dead spots.2 Plus, you get additional security – a must-have for protecting your smart home.
Monitor your smart home from your phone.
They say home is where the Wi-Fi connects (at least we do anyway), but home is also where you’re in control... of your devices. No creepy smart home horror moving scenarios happening here.
The Midco Wi-Fi app puts the internet reigns right in the palm of your hand.
The app continuously learns device usage and optimizes performance overall. Software includes key features like AdaptTM, SenseTM, GuardTM and ControlTM so you feel right at home with all your smart devices. For example, the Guard feature blocks malicious sites uncovered by the software from affecting your devices. If a device does become infected, Guard will quarantine the said device so the virus does not harm any other devices.
