Wi-Fi enabled devices in the home are bringing a new level of flexibility to our lives, whether it is being able to see who is ringing your doorbell when you are not at home, adjusting the thermostat automatically when you are going to be home earlier or later than usual, or being reassured by being able to look at your home's security camera feed while on vacation. These are just a few of the internet-connected devices that are coming to the market, and in the years ahead, there will be countless connected-devices designed to give us more comfort and flexibility in our homes.
However, those very devices that are designed to make our lives easier can be incredibly frustrating to get up and running. Connecting a device that does not have a screen or keyboard to your home Wi-Fi network can be a complicated experience, and there are high return rates for these products, simply because end users cannot get them to connect or stay connected to their home Wi-Fi network.
This is where Cirrent comes in. The Cirrent ZipKey Network is a parallel internet connection, not managed by the end user, that enables the devices to come online without any user involvement. Once the device is online, it is much easier to manage, whether by the end user or the customer care team.
This application is for ZipKey developers to be able to experience the seamless Wi-Fi on boarding that a ZipKey-enabled product can deliver. The application lets you walk through all the available user experiences, so that you can ensure that your ZipKey-enabled product delivers the best on boarding experience whether in range or out of range of a ZipKey hotspot. You can also use this app to test your product, and to ensure that it delivers the best Wi-FI on boarding experience.
