First things first – you will need an internet connection. This will allow you to connect your various devices over WiFi to bring technology throughout your home – whether that’s on a computer, the phone in your pocket or your TV & Sound system.
On our newest Tooway Konnect packages wireless connectivity is built into your modem – meaning you don’t need to fork out for expensive routers! Also with unlimited* data you can surf, stream and shop – or do all at the same time – without worrying about running out of broadband.
A Now TV 4K box and VPN router gives you LIVE Sky TV as well as LIVE BBC and ITV streamed through the internet to your TV on a pay as you go basis without a contract. The box doesn’t require a satellite signal as it is an internet TV box working through your WiFi.
It also has a massive collection of catch-up and On Demand features. The VPN router connects to your existing router and allows the Now TV box to work outside of the UK. Full instructions are supplied so you can set the system up with ease.
Best yet, you can view anywhere in the world with this box and it only requires 2MG download speed to work.
Sonos sound systems
Sonos is a speaker system that connects wirelessly to your computer, phone, tablet or TV so you can watch cinema sound quality movies or play music in any room or every room of your home.
Sonos speakers have been described as “the best-sounding smart speaker you can buy”. Having spent time developing their range they now offer voice control like an Amazon Echo or Alexa device with superior sound quality to their competitors.
If you don’t want bulky speakers taking up space or ruining the style of your room Sonos has a full range of options and add-ons. So if you need 1 speak, or 100 you can find something that suits you with built-in options for ceiling or walls, or moveable pieces you can carry around. You can also use TruePlay to analyse your room and optimise the sound of the speaker based on where it has been placed.
To complement your whole system and keep up with the kids you might be interested in a Smart Assistant such as Amazon’s Echo with “Alexa”. Conveniently Alexa only needs 0.5mbps to stream, meaning with astrasat’s speeds of up to 50mbps on Tooway Konnect you needn’t worry about your music dropping in the middle of your party!
The features of the device include: voice interaction, music playback, making to-do lists, setting alarms, streaming podcasts, and playing audiobooks, in addition to providing weather, traffic and other real-time information. It can also control several smart devices, acting as a home automation hub.
Satellite broadband connection, Now TV and Sonos speakers are all available from astrasat.tv so get in touch, get connected and turn your home into a smart success.
