Smart homes have become a key fixture of CeBIT, and that’s not going to change when its new cutting-edge format is unveiled in Hannover in June 2018. If anything, tantalizing ideas for networking our homes are set to become even more prominent. And that's precisely what ASUS Computer GmbH has in mind with its "work of art" BLUE CAVE AC2600 WiFi router. ASUS has developed this stunning router as the optimum hub for any state-of-the-art smart home - offering powerful WiFi while setting new standards in elegance. The four antennas are tucked away inside its casing, which looks light years ahead of the run-of-the-mill routers we're used to hiding away in a corner. Its sleek, compact design will add the finishing esthetic touch to any smart home.
But the beauty of BLUE CAVE is more than skin-deep thanks to the state-of-the-art technology inside. In the past, opting for internal antennas to save space always meant compromising on performance. But the developers behind this device have succeeded in optimizing their positioning and alignment to overcome any drawbacks. What's more, BLUE CAVE has integrated AiProtection, the security software developed by ASUS for home networks that covers every connected device, including more vulnerable IoT devices such as smart TVs. The package boasts numerous family-friendly features, such as advanced parental controls to block inappropriate web content and limit usage on specific devices. If that's not enticing enough, BLUE CAVE supports Amazon Alexa and IFTTT, thus enhancing existing smart homes with cutting-edge functions. For example, WiFi can be turned off with a spoken command to safeguard family time at the table.
