There’s no shortage of family-centric routers available to consumers but they’re not all created equally. The Gryphon Wireless Router looks to bridge the gap between the world wide web and your kids with its sleek design and impressive software. Made by the creators of the MiFi hotspot, this Kickstarter project has a substantial list of features. Administrators will be able to set per-device limits, shutdown access when needed and view browsing history. The coolest feature is the ability to allow or deny realtime requests submitted by users.
Not only is it loaded with helpful software, the Gryphon router also checks all of the boxes on the hardware side of things. It has tri-band connectivity with MU-MIMO and beam-forming technology. The network can be easily expanded thanks to support for mesh networking. However, the design may be our favorite part. Gryphon has a unique curved shaped that places antennas at a variety of different angles to help with signal quality. It is currently available for the super early bird price of $139 with an estimated June 2017 ship date.
Gryphon combines a high performance WiFi router with a simple to use smartphone app, making it easy for parents and families to manage the connected home. All security features are built directly within the router itself, so there is no complicated software to install on your connected devices. Gryphon gives parents peace of mind as their kids explore the internet. Software updates and parental control are included free of charge forever. There are no monthly or annual charges for Gryphon updates or parental control.
