TP-Link Deco is Here to Save Your Wi-Fi Network and Your Sanity

More than just a quick way to boost your coverage, TP-Link Deco lets you take control of Wi-Fi usage in your home with a handy app.

Where would we be without Wi-Fi? As brilliant as it may be for carrying the Internet to our devices, it does come with one or two drawbacks – especially as we’re all spending a lot more time at home now, staring into screens of various sizes.

This new reality has meant we not only rely on the need for fast, reliable connectivity – for work and play – but also smarter ways of limiting screen time and keeping our kids from going down potentially destructive social media spirals.

Your Wi-Fi, your way

First, let’s talk coverage. We all love it. We all need it. But it’s hands down one of the most frustrating things to get right. Unfortunately, there are loads of obstacles in modern homes that impact our coverage and bandwidth.

These include, but aren’t limited to, the size of our house, what the walls are made from and how thick they are, how many floors we have and whether our router is near other objects that might interfere with the Wi-Fi signal, like a microwave or even a fish tank.

Mesh Wi-Fi offers a great solution for creating a seamless network in your home quickly and easily. All you need to do is place a mesh router in the areas of your home most in need of a signal boost and you’re all set. If you need more coverage, you simply add a mesh unit where needed.

If you choose TP-Link Deco, you’ll not only enjoy seamless Wi-Fi throughout your home, you’ll be able to monitor Internet usage from the palm of your hand via the Deco app – one that includes robust parental controls.

Worried about screen time? There’s an app for that

The Deco app is designed to help you set up your TP-Link mesh solution, but it also includes a ton of other useful functionalities to help make your day to day life just that much easier – especially when it comes to monitoring and limiting websites and screen time for your kids.

With the TP-Link Deco app, you can create a profile for each member of your family and manage them individually. This means if one of your kids is on an Internet time-out, no one else suffers too – their devices will be the only ones affected. Not only will you be able to cut their Wi-Fi access for a set time, you’ll also be able to limit the sites they visit or apps they use and keep it all extremely age-appropriate with ease.

The Deco app is also invaluable when it comes to setting your TP-Link routers up, as it will guide you to the best placement for each one and give you an indication of how good your Wi-Fi network really is. TP-Link Deco units are also capable of handling up to 100 connected devices, so there’s no need to worry about overloading your network anymore either.

With Vox Wi-Fi Home Mesh, you’ll be able to cover your home in a cosy blanket of Wi-Fi and sleep comfortably knowing your Internet is totally within your control and just an app away.
