New Functionality Allows Users to Easily Manage Their Internet Experience
DRAPER, Utah — Luxul, the leading innovator of IP networking solutions for AV integrators, today announced that the company’s Epic Series of wired and wireless gigabit routers is now available with built-in Router Limits content management technology. Router Limits offers cloud-based parental controls for internet safety and puts users in complete control of every aspect of their internet experience, allowing them to choose which devices can access the web, what websites are OK, and the days and times the internet should be available. Router Limits users can also control mobile devices’ access to the internet when they leave the home network.
Using an interface that can be accessed from anywhere, Router Limits makes it simple for users to set a schedule cutting off internet access during specific hours. Built-in “Categories” and “Popular Sites” also allow entire swaths of the web to be quickly declared off-limits; each category contains millions of websites and is constantly updated. Even popular mobile apps like Facebook or Instagram can be controlled. Rules for use can also be applied to individual devices or groups of devices — from smart TVs to smartphones and tablets. If there are any concerns about how or when the internet is being used, Router Limits keeps history in the cloud where it can’t be hidden, manipulated, or deleted.
“Our Epic Series routers incorporate powerful technologies that make networks smarter and more reliable, while delivering a better customer experience,” said Mike Grubb, vice president of marketing at Luxul. “We’re glad to add Router Limits content management functionality, which provides robust, easy-to-access control for all users, whether it’s parents scheduling internet time for their kids or employers managing network traffic. In addition to the Epic Series routers, we are building value with our XWR-1200 and XWR-3100 routers by adding Router Limits with a firmware update.”
“Router Limits is a natural fit for Luxul’s Epic Series routers, which incorporate a variety of on-board technologies to add value for integrators and end users alike,” said Tyler Phillips, director of business development at Router Limits. “For Luxul’s customers, this integration delivers the popular parental control features they have come to rely on via a simple, intuitive interface, while providing integrators with an opportunity to expand their business by offering recurring monthly revenue services. We’re proud to team up with Luxul and look forward to continuing this valuable partnership.”
Luxul’s Epic Series includes the dual-band wireless AC3100 Epic 3, wired multi-WAN Epic 4, and wired dual-WAN Epic 5. In addition, Router Limits is available for the company’s dual-band AC1200 XWR-1200 and AC3100 XWR-3100 wireless routers via a firmware update.
The Luxul Epic Series has recently been recognized with a TechHome® Mark of Excellence Award, presented by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)™ at CES, for Networking Product of the Year. In addition, at the Integrated Systems Europe show, the Epic 3 Router received a CEPro Top New Technology (TNT) award in the residential home networking category.
