Securifi Almond 3 2021 Updated Review The Smart Home Wi-Fi System.
Securifi Almond 3: Are you looking for a way to secure your home with ease, then the Securifi Almond 3 is a device that will do just that with so much simplicity.
What’s the Securifi Almond 3
As a router and smart home hub, this is a midlevel 802.11ac Wi-Fi router. It doesn’t offer the fastest Wi-Fi speed but it’s more than fast enough to deliver any residential internet connection.
What makes it different from other routers, however, is the fact it comes with a touch screen — similar to the Starry — and a built-in one-volume-level speaker that works as an alarm (like a digital alarm clock).
Apart from Wi-Fi, it can also work with other smart-home devices such as security sensors via a popular wireless standard for home automation called ZigBee 1.2 and is compatible with hundreds of web-connected devices.
Securifi Almond 3 review 2020 is small, but in my trial, it’s still powerful enough to cover a small home.
As a Wi-Fi system, one of the three units works as a router and the other two as extenders.
When all three are used together and placed at optimal distances from one another, they create a mesh network that can cover up to 4,000 square feet with a Wi-Fi signal.
What Makes it Unique?
You can control the Securifi Almond 3 from three different platforms: the touchscreen on the device, a separate mobile app that you’ll need a phone or tablet to access, and a web interface via your home computer
Design and Features
The Securifi Almond 3 review 2020 3 comes in white or black and can be ordered as a standalone router ($149.99) or a three-piece Wi-Fi system.
All three components share the same basic design as the Almond router($89.99 at Amazon) that we reviewed a few years back, only bigger.
The boxes sit vertically and feature a 2.8-inch, full-color touch screen on their face. The display uses Windows-like tiles to guide you through the various network and home automation settings menus, but I found it a bit too small, especially if you happen to have big, stubby fingers.
Installation is easy. I connected the main router to my desktop PC and waited around 45 seconds for the touch screen to initialize.
It then wanted to know which region (country) I was in and needed another 30 seconds to save this information. Next, the setup wizard asked for a location (bedroom, den, office, etc.) and gave me three installations choices
