Econais ProbMe provides an easy, fast and secure way to add new devices to a network. With ProbMe, after the user unpacks and turns on their new device, the device “quietly listens” until the user activates it – no one else knows it is there. This helps prevent hackers from identifying and attacking new and un-configured devices. To activate these new Wi-Fi devices, the user simply sends out a configuration code from their computer, tablet, laptop or smart phone. The configuration code is broadcast to all the new devices, which, after “hearing” the code, automatically configure themselves to the network. Voila! The devices are immediately connected and configured.
ProbMe provides an embedded capability that enables a single step to securely configure 1, 10, 100, or even 1,000 devices in mere seconds. No matter how many devices are located throughout a home or office, instead of having to activate each one separately, they all can be activated and configured in just one simple step.
Multiple devices can be securely configured simultaneously and numerous commands can be implemented and customized – including customization of security options. ProbMe currently supports commands such as “Connect to Wi-Fi network in client mode”, “Start as Wi-Fi access point” and “Connect to WPS Wi-Fi network by emulating Push Button or PIN”.
The new ProbMe software is included with the EC19D and EC19W Econais Wi-Fi Modules, Development Kits and Reference Designs, and are available through major industry distributors such as Digi-Key.
