This time, we take a look at an easier way to extend a wireless network, with devices that don't use WDS.
Hawking Technologies today announced a wireless range extender supporting 802.11b, g and draft n networks.
The HWREN1 Hi-Gain Wireless-300N Range Extender is said to work with "most" 802.11b/g/ draft n networks, access points and routers and does not require WDS bridging/repeating support. Networks using WEP, WPA and WPA2 wireless security are supported.
The HWREN1 is available now for around $100 street.
Hawking Technologies today announced that it has released the next generation of its remote home automation system.
Hawking Technologies announced today that it has begun shipping a draft 802.11n USB networking adapter with upgradeable antennas and a USB print server designed for use with multifunction printers.
Hawking Technologies today announced the release of its HPOE1 Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) Adapter Kit. The new, 2-in-1 Injector-plus-Splitter Adapter Kit delivers both power and data over standard Ethernet cables.
The HPOE1s splitter unit has three adjustable power settings 5V, 7.5V, and 12V - for compatibility with a wider range of network devices and works with both wired and wireless Ethernet-enabled network devices.
The HPOE1 is available now at an MSRP of $49.99.
(IRVINE, CA) Hawking Technologies has announced the release of its HomeRemote home control system. The system uses Z-wave wireless technology, which is competing with Zigbee in the wireless control application market.
The HRGZ1 HomeRemote System consists of an internet gateway and handheld remote control for in-home control of lighting and appliances. The system also allows remote control via a standard Internet web browser or mobile phone and features live video monitoring from via HomeRemote Video Cameras (HRNC1).
The product line will begin shipping on March 1st. MSRP for the HomeRemote Gateway plus Remote Control will be $199.99 and $169.99 for the Wireless Video camera.
Hawking Technologies announced today that it has joined the Z-Wave Alliance and plans to use Z-Wave technology in upcoming products. Hawking also said it plans to release a home control product using Z-Wave technology "very soon".
Z-Wave is a proprietary Personal Area Network (PAN) technology developed by Zensys A/S of Denmark. It competes with the Zigbee standard (aka IEEE 802.15.4) for mesh wireless control technology, primarily aimed at home control applications. Z-Wave uses a two-way RF system that operates in the 908MHz band while Zigbee operates in 2.4GHz (global), 915Mhz (Americas) and 868Mhz (Europe) bands.
