Presentation_All_Mediums_blue.jpgWe recently announced the availability of Cisco Connect™ Cloud, a software platform for Linksys® Smart Wi-Fi Routers that redefines and dramatically simplifies how consumers connect, control and interact with their connected devices, including personal entertainment and home appliances.


Cisco Connect Cloud is designed to handle all the tiresome and complicated technical aspects of home network set-up and connecting devices to the network. This enables the average person to get on with using and enjoying their Internet service, as well as a wide range of new uses enabled by the home network.




And while we offer the ability to manage your network via your desktop or laptop, Cisco Connect Cloud is also available for mobile devices on the iOS or Android platforms as a free app. The mobile app will give you anywhere anytime access to your network information.


Another great aspect of our Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Routers is that we have launched six unique apps that offer different experiences with the devices connected to your network. From media players to an IP Camera viewer, our Linksys Smart Wi-Fi apps offer unique experiences never thought possible for a home router. These apps include:


Block the Bad Stuff: Block the Bad Stuff brings safe web surfing to Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Routers in an easy way. Protect all users and devices from accessing content from security vulnerable sites, adult content and other non-family friendly sites.


HipPlay: HipPlay allows users to play, beam, share photos, music, videos on their phone, tablet, PC, Mac or TV when they want, where they want.


Gemini IP Camera Viewer: The Gemini IP Camera Viewer app for iPhone enables home monitoring at home and on the go for consumers on smartphones and tablets via Wi-Fi and cellular networks. The app also enables easy installation of home monitoring equipment.


Twonky Video:

Twonky Video is a mobile browser for smartphones and tablets to browse online video services and "beam" them to your Smart TV or AirPlay devices. 


Device Monitoring: The Device Monitoring app  provides visibility to all of your connected devices and gives you real-time status updates about them. Get notifications, for example, when which devices go online and see how long they have been online for


Netproofer: Netproofer helps parents restrict access to specific websites and services like Facebook, Netfix or YouTube for all users or per specific device. You can also restrict access by time all from this app.


All of these apps are available for download from either the App Store or Google Play.
