Securify Almond Review
Traditionally, a router comes with either desktop software or a Web interface (or both), which are generally complicated for and always require a computer to activate and troubleshoot issues. Except for a few routers from Linksys etc, setup and troubleshoot is never fun. Securify Almond sports a new touch-based interface and is designed to ease the challenge of setting up a new router.
Securify Almond has a 2.8″ 320×240-pixel full-color touch screen that takes care of its own setup and maintenance. It is a single-band Wireless-N device that offers top Wi-Fi speeds of 300Mbps using 802.11 b/g/n and has one WAN port and two LAN ports (most routers have four). Unfortunately the router does not support dual-band, Gigabit, or USB devices.
Securify Almond acts as a wireless range extender as well – extending the reach of wireless network to more than 100′.
