Do you find that your Wi-Fi coverage is lacking in some parts of your house? Perhaps you are also tired of maintaining your Wi-Fi network and you don't want to dive down into advanced settings to get your home Wi-Fi system setup and running. Well, perhaps ASUS has something to help you blanket your entire home in Wi-Fi goodness. ASUS just launched the Lyra Home WiFi System, a complete and easy-to-use Wi-Fi mesh network kit for all your wireless needs.
Asus Lyra is designed to ensure that your smartphone, laptop, gaming console, streaming media player and your smart-home gadgets all enjoy the fastest possible Wi-Fi experience, while also ensuring a reliable and secure connection no matter where the devices are located in your home.
ASUS is looking to simplify your home network needs, providing three powerful tri-band Wi-Fi mesh network hubs to give you maximum performance. Your wireless devices will seamlessly connect to any hub deployed in your home that has the best signal. This allows you to have an uninterrupted experience as you check your email, chat with friends, or finish that last quest.
Lyra also incorporates the ASUS AiProtection, which is a commercial-grade network security system powered by Trend Micro Smart Home Network. We've seen that with the TP-Link Deco Mesh Network kit as well. It's a great service to ensure your home network is protected against past, current and impending security threats seen around the Internet. Using a intrusion prevention system (IPS) with a deep packet inspection (DPI) engine, all data packets to and from your home network are blocked automatically.
With ASUS trying to simplify your home network experience, setup is done with the ASUS Lyra mobile app. The app connects via Bluetooth to do the initial setup or modify an existing setup. It also includes Family Overview, a feature that allows the management of each user's device. Essentially, you get some pretty easy-to-use parental controls.
The ASUS Lyra is now available with a suggested MSRP of $399.99 USD, which includes three units.
