TRENDnet Offers Smart Switch with Wireless Extender
TRENDnet this week announced the availability of its Home Smart Switch with Wireless Extender (THA-101), the device offers a combination of smart electrical outlet and powerful N300 wireless extension capability. You can plug in a light lamp, fan or appliance into the electrical outlet on the front of the THA-101 then use the TRENDnet's free Apple or Android mobile app to turn the outlet on/off from a mobile device with an Internet connection.
The THA-101 is a great solution for those that suffer from wireless “dead spot” in their home. The switch work by extending wireless signal strength from an existing wireless network. You can also use the app to create a weekly on/off schedule, with varying daily on/off times, so that lights are on when returning home or to give the illusion of being home.
Plug in the THA-101 and follow a quick app-based installation. The powerful built-in N300 wireless extender then broadcasts a stronger wireless signal to an area of your home with low or no wireless coverage. The free app displays detailed real-time electrical consumption including the current (in mA), voltage, power (in Watts), and total energy consumption (in kWh).
