Nomadix Inc., unveils a new cloud-based solution for multi-family dwelling units – Nomadix Cloud Managed Wi-Fi. Providing intuitive Wi-Fi provisioning and management for property managers, residents and tenants, Nomadix offers security and efficiency in areas where multiple networks are active within a building. The solution offers seamless, secure and consistent connectivity for multi-resident environments, supports multiple bandwidth plans and reduces service calls.
With portal-free Wi-Fi onboarding, Nomadix Cloud Managed Wi-Fi gives each subscriber a Wi-Fi passphrase (Wi-Fi WPA2 key) that can be used to onboard devices, without requiring a MAC address. Even "headless" devices like Nest thermostats or Xboxes can access the Wi-Fi network simply by following manufacturer's instructions.
Residents are no longer required to install personal home routers or network equipment that ultimately compete for radio frequency and cause poor and inconsistent Wi-Fi connectivity. Instead, residents connect to a single SSID and make use of pre-installed Wi-Fi and wired infrastructure at the property.
Using the personal Wi-Fi WPA2 key, a unique Personal Area Network is created for each user, allowing residents to securely connect to their home network from anywhere on the property. Residents can control their connected IoT and media devices at home, while they are at a neighbor's house or in the common area. This includes IoT devices, such as thermostats and lighting, and media streaming devices like Apple TV and Chromecast.
Using an intuitive interface, residents also have the ability to self-manage their own Wi-Fi settings, change passwords and add devices without calling support. Property managers, whether managing one building or hundreds of buildings, can easily provision new Wi-Fi service for residents with easy-to-use drop-down menus.
In addition, because the Nomadix solution manages the bandwidth accessed by all users, bandwidth limits can be set per user or device, regardless of the number of devices each subscriber might have, an important differentiator when you consider that currently over 95 percent of internet bandwidth in residential homes is consumed over resident-managed Wi-Fi networks.
