E-mail Print PDF

TP-Link presents HomeCare-- a networking security solution featuring built-in Trend Micro antivirus control, dynamic security features and customisable parental controls.

TP-Link routerAvailable as a firmware update for select TP-Link products (namely the recently announced Deco M5 Whole-Home Wifi System and Archer C5400, C3150 and C2300 routers), HomeCare promises an all-in-one solution combining speed with comprehensive security features. An intrusion prevention system protects against malware and hackers, while malicious site blocking prevents access to dodgy websits from within the network.

An additional security layer quarantines previously infested devices joining the network, and provides instant warnings for users to take necessary steps to fix infected devices. Trend Micro should also keep the system up to date with regular updates, ensuring the network remains protected against new threats.

Also included are quality of service (QoS) capabilities able to adjust internet needs to ensure the network operates at top speed. Thus, bandwidth is prioritised according to favourite online content, such as games and video streaming, without impacting other devices.

Another TP-Link announcement involves the rollout of custom Amazon Alexa skills and IFTTT integration. Alexa skills provide TP-Link router voice control via the Amazon smart speaker, while IFTTT triggers allow users to create custom automation recipes.
