Chris Henseler has created a new two part wireless system called Pylon that allows visitors to your home to easily gain access to your wireless network but lets you keep your files and storage drives secure and out of reach.
Once you have installed Pylon in your home you will no longer have to rummage around to find your security key for visitors to them type into their devices. In the video after the jump its inventor explains how his new system will be able to help secure your home network and make it easily available to visitors when required.
A visitor to your home can then easily enjoys access to your wireless network via Pylon and it’s easy for you to restrict access when required without the need to change your network password.
Pylon supports iOS, Android, Windows and Blackberry devices and uses NFC where available. those devices that do not have NFC compatibility simply need to touch their devices against the Pylon interface for the application to detect the existence of your wireless network.
“Hosting a house full of people can be a challenge. Especially when it comes to greeting guests, selecting music, giving directions, or simply thanking people for coming over at the end of the night.
Pylon enhances your in-home hosting experience by automatically logging guests into your network, providing useful information to house guests through a secure & seamless Wifi connection – without a password.
The software integrates your guests’ mobile phone with devices such as your Smart TV and Audio system to share music, arrange photo collages, or even “push” a thank you message at the end of the night. Perfect for busy hosts!”
The Pylon project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise enough pledges to make the jump from concept to production. So if you think Pylon is something you could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help Pylon become a reality.
