M2 Hive: the ultimate Wi-Fi system
The best Wi-Fi is one you will never have to think about again.
Our product is brought to you by the same team that designed the modern smartphone antenna - that iPhone in your pocket? It’s antenna is an iteration of our founder’s original design back in 2004. Now, we bring all that game-changing expertise to your home’s Wi-Fi system.
M2 Hive offers the speed, connectivity, simplicity, and control that the modern day home requires. As our homes become smarter with technology such as voice assistants and connected thermostats and demand on our bandwidth increases with streaming services, online gaming and downloading, current Wi-Fi systems just aren’t keeping up.
M2 Hive is tested near twice as fast as the industry average and has your whole home covered with high performing connectivity.
All configurations of the M2 Hive is controlled via the M2 app which is free to download from Google Play and Apple App Store. You will also be able to manage users, limiting bandwidth for specific devices, so you have total control over your network.
M2 Hive: our Wi-Fi nodes blanket your entire home
As we bring more technology into our homes, we need a Wi-Fi system that can support these products in every room of the house.
Voice assistants, smart thermostats, lights, connected speakers and smart TVs are becoming commonplace but we’ve all experienced the lag in connectivity or sudden interruptions. It becomes especially difficult when multiple devices are connected to the same Wi-Fi network and everyone’s trying to use them at the same time. Like when you’re in one room asking Alexa to play your favorite album, but it drops out because one of your family starts streaming a film on Netflix.
With M2 we are fixing that problem forever by giving you access to reliable connectivity and hugely increased coverage across your home. With the Bee nodes that come with your M2 Hive, not only do you get a Wi-Fi range of up to 5,000 square feet, but the signal will also travel through walls, offering stable connection speed that supports multiple 8K streaming throughout the house.
