Luxul’s new Easy Setup App is now available as a free download for Apple and Android devices. For professional integrators, the app greatly speeds up the installation process and ensures that key installation points are covered.
“This app has been put through its paces by Luxul dealers to ensure a reliable tool primed to speed up installations and lower costs,” said Mike Grubb, vice president of marketing at Luxul. “We couldn’t be more excited to say that initial testing is now complete, and the app is available to all integrators on the Apple and Google Play stores.”
Luxul’s Easy Setup App allows integrators to install a Luxul wireless router and up to two wireless access points (APs) – at the same time – from the convenience of an iOS or Android phone. The beauty of installing the additional APs with the app, according to Luxul’s VP and General Manager, Jeff Curtis, is that the router’s wireless controller takes care of the configuration; the installer simply plugs them in. The simple-to-use mobile application not only speeds up installations but ensures the product is installed with the appropriate security settings and the latest firmware.
“The new Easy Setup App was very slick. I don’t know how it could have been any easier, and I’m someone who doesn’t do well with networks at all,” said Matt Montgomery, president of TYM Smart Homes & Home Theaters. “This will be a game changer for dealers, allowing less-experienced installers to quickly deploy networks.”
Joe Whitaker, founder and president of The Thoughtful Home, says that the professional integration industry should take note. “Instant setup of a multi-access-point configuration from a smart phone is the future,” he stated. “And the time savings is huge when it comes to configuring the backbone to any system. Easy Setup should be the industry standard for small to medium managed Wi-Fi networks.”
