Existing routers and smart gateway devices cannot visualise the signal strength of connected devices, so users typically have to restart their devices if the network signal is poor. Mountains rethinks gateway products in an artistic, interactive and intelligent way. It employs magnetic levitation and induction technology to locate and enhance the signals of connected devices automatically and manually. It uses multiple in-built antennas to create eight smart signal zones. According to the positioning area and signal strength of connected devices, the smart-touch layer provides a signal fluctuation that dips and peaks. Combined with LED lights, users can intuitively locate the position and signal strength of each connected device. Users can also use the smart-touch layer to trigger the smart sensing of the antenna, which will automatically adjust its height and angle to enhance signal intensity in certain areas.
