So no need to pay for the hardware? Looks like you need one unit in each room to get decent coverage.

There's a guide on there for coverage recommendations. To be honest, I have the Samsung Smarthings WiFi hubs that use Plume technology, and I got this one SuperPod just to play with the cool motion detection feature (it's currently not available in the Smartthings WiFi hubs).

Additional pods seem to be $99 each, if you want it for a whole system. I've been very happy with it on Smartthings, however, the service is free on those devices.

Looks like 1 super pod is free
and each additional is $99 so 3-4 bedroom home needs 3 = $200

if not using their service after their free 1 year promotion what happens? this is their FAQ. Can someone elaborate and let me know to what degree it would still work?

What will happen if I don't renew my Annual membership? Will my pods turn into pretty wall ornaments?
Your Wi-Fi network will continue to work with static mesh functionality and your pods will continue to receive firmware updates. You will also retain access to basic app features such as Wi-Fi and network settings.

Thanks. I spent some time researching about Plume and it seems very limited. Will pass. Thanks for posting the deal.

Subscription based wifi that doesn't support AX. That doesn't support IPV6 without external hardware which defeats the point of their gear. That doesn't have a power cable so it's hard to hardwire a wired ethernet backbone. It has the ports, but you'd have to plug them in right next to a power outlet.

Their HomePass is nice. It simulates a VLAN with much less complexity, but overall OpenWRT or even some modern routers support VLAN natively.

Just one question with one word. WHY?

One answer: Free

It's not OpenWRT, it's a very simple UI that has some nice advanced features. And it's free. Someone who just uses IPV4, and wants simple user management with ad blocking, security, IoT protection etc can enjoy it for a year.

I personally have Plume technology for my WiFi, but behind all of it still sits my good old Tomato router controlling fine grain access. For me it provides good user access that Tomato and other similar router codes don't make that easy, plus the connected device information is also in a very consumable and usable format.

If that's not your thing, that's cool, but this tech very much does have its place as a choice in the marketplace.

Technically 1 is free for a year. Unless you have a small apartment 1 isn't enough. And a year goes by so fast..... :-(

There's a $1 charge. I just used a PayPal cash card.

Do the super pods come pre-registered to an account. Or is it possible to combine into 1 account 2 or 3 super pods from various "free" offers?
