Lynksys Wireless Extender (3-pack)

Easy to set up all three of these in less than 15 minutes using the app, but as there is an online connected device list facility I just wish my 36 connected devices would send their actual name to the system app rather than silly mac addresses and therefore me working out what each item is and editing the device name, which took a further 7 hours!

I’m 48 hours in now using the system and not had a single glitch using 5 fire sticks, and 9 camera’s running, plus the other 22 devices (lighting and heating etc) so I’m naturally impressed to say the least...

Top Tip, Don’t waste you time pulling you hair out with thief of time cheaper option Wi-fi extenders, go all in and start enjoying life again..

Good start, lags behind some competitors

On the positive side, this app is miles ahead of Netgear (presumably your main competitor) and provides quite deep functionality compared to many apps for mesh systems. Apps from Google WiFi and Plume (possibly Eero from what I've seen) offer a bit more information in a better presentation, but less admin capability.

Some areas I'd love to see improved:

1. Make better use of real estate in the iPad app. As it stands is just the iPhone app, bigger. (but credit to you for even offering a native iPad app) 🙂

2. On both iPad and iPhone, increase the 'density' of information in the device list. Smaller fonts and icons would be a start.

3. Include options to sort and filter the device list by name, connection type, data transferred etc

4. Include a display of devices by which node they're connected to. This is invaluable for trouble shooting. One option would be to have a 'drill in' presentation starting at the top level showing all Velop nodes. Clicking on one presents the devices on that node. Another option would be just a heirarchical display of nodes with their attached devices beneath.

5. Add more device type icons or allow user to upload their own. I have tons of device types which aren't represented. Not critical but nice to have.

6. Not an iOS request, but allow the Alexa skill to restart the mesh.

7. Include some reporting on the amount of data transferred, and a history of speed test results.

Fanastic app for keeping tabs on your Wi-Fi

One of the best apps I’ve used for keeing tabs on Wi-Fi. Aesthetically it is very polished. The menus are easy to navigate. It has a well thought out dashboard when opening the app. At a glance you can see how many devices are connected to your home Wi-Fi network.

It would be good to have the number of nodes and status of each node too. Also some data stats would be good to have, how much data down/up loaded via each node.

Also would be handy to have data for each network client. How much data each client has downloaded/uploaded what the peak down/up load rate for that client has been.
