Have you ever experienced slow internet speeds or complete internet downtime? It can be frustrating, especially if you rely on the internet for work or other important tasks. While there are many reasons why your internet may be slow or disconnected, one common solution is to simply reboot your router. But who has the time to keep manually rebooting their router every time it misbehaves? especially when you have multiple homes and you have to travel to get into the location, and it needs a reliable internet connection to keep your smart devices online. What if there’s a smart device that is purposely built to monitor your internet health and that you can easily plug into your traditional outlet or a 20 amp smart outlet? That’s where Keep Connect gives you the ultimate benefit.
What is Keep Connect?
Keep Connect is an innovative router reboot automation tool that can help you keep your internet connection running smoothly without the need for manual intervention. This device works by periodically checking your internet connection and automatically rebooting your router when necessary. Through our optional Cloud Service Subscription, you can easily monitor your Keep Connect remotely through our app, and be able to do remote reboots from anywhere you are. Not only does it prove itself as a helpful tool to power up your smart home devices, but it can be very useful for offices, businesses, and remote locations.
Other than that, Keep Connect has a power monitoring feature. How does it work? When you use Keep Connect for your smart home devices, our Cloud Servers will monitor your device’s “heartbeat” and be capable of detecting whenever these device(s) are offline. In such a case, it will automatically send you notifications in the same way it alerts you of internet outages. It is also good to note that Keep Connect is built to fit your traditional outlet or 20 amp smart outlet.
