Home-automation supplier Legrand will boost the speed of its installed Wireless Access Point from 54Mbps to 300Mbps beginning in the fall with the shipment of its Wi-Fi 802.11n Wireless Access Point (N-WAP).
N-WAP, part of the company’s Unity home-automation system, can be installed two ways—- as a domeshaped unit on the ceiling or a wall-mounted rectangular box. A single SKU includes all hardware necessary for both wall-mount and ceiling-mount options.
It replaces the company’s current wireless access point and features multiple internal antennas to improve Wi-Fi coverage throughout the home.
It connects to a home’ router via CAT-5 cable. A separate power wire doesn’t have to be run to the access point because power is delivered over CAT- 5 via PoE (Power over Ethernet) technology.
It can be mounted over a triple-gang or singlegang electrical box.
“This new Wireless Access Point enables homeowners to fully utilize all their Wi-Fi devices throughout their homes without any concern for bandwidth constraints,” said Dave Hanchette, marketing VP for Legrand’s home systems division.
