If your home wireless network suffers from wireless dead spots, a consumer mesh router system might be worth more investigation and help you create a more robust wireless network around your home or small business. Rather than just creating a mesh router Asus has taken the technology one step further and integrated an Amazon Alexa equipped smart speaker into their new Asus Lyra Voice mesh router and speaker system.
Combining both wireless connectivity and home automation in one unique and aesthetically designed piece of hardware which has been finished with a soft effect fabric casing. The Lyra Wi-Fi hubs can easily be configured using the companion smartphone application to create a mesh of wireless connectivity that supports 802.11ac. Allowing you to enjoy streaming music to every corner of your home without any disruption. Thanks to the Amazon Alexa integration users can also check the weather, ask questions and control other smart appliances which are currently supported by the Amazon personal assistant.
Unfortunately Asus has not announced pricing for the new Lyra Voice mesh router and speaker, although Asus has indicated that the new hardware will be available to purchase sometime during the first half of 2018. As soon as more details are announced we will keep you up-to-date as always.
