Rotterdam (The Netherlands), July 2011 - Sitecom expands the Smart Living line with a complete series of homeplugs consisting of various models to meet the requirements of different groups of users. During development of the line tremendous attention was given to the ease of use; this can be seen in the packaging as well as in the functionalities offered by the different models. The new series of homeplugs includes solutions that provide speeds of up to 200 Mbps or 500 Mbps. There are also ‘plus socket’ adapters that include an integrated plug socket, so a socket is not lost, and there is a ‘plus switch’ model to which the user can simultaneously connect three network devices, such as a desktop PC, game console and Smart TV.

Speed: 500 Mbps and 200 Mbps
With the homeplugs users can create a home network in the blink of an eye via the mains sockets without any need to run cables through the home. The LN-507 Homeplug 500 Mbps, LN-508 Homeplug Plus Socket 500 Mbps and the LN-509 Homeplug Plus Switch 500 Mbps support the new maximum speed of 500 Mbps and make it possible to share high-speed internet, files and peripherals via the electrical wiring. The 500 Mbps models are ideal for high-speed internet and demanding media applications such as the streaming of HD videos and online gaming. The LN-505 Homeplug 200 Mbps and the LN-506 Homeplug Adapter Plus Socket offer speeds of up to 200 Mbps.

Why plus socket?
The LN-506 Homeplug Plus Socket 200 Mbps and the LN-508 Homeplug Plus Socket 500 Mbps are ‘plus socket’ models with an integrated mains socket, allowing connection of a device that requires power or a plug strip. This way the mains socket is not ‘lost’.

Explanation & support
“We see that powerline networks are gaining popularity. At the same time there is a large group of users that does not know that a homeplug could be a solution to their network problem or do not believe it is really so simple. This is why we have put tremendous effort into providing explanation & support during the development of this new series”, explains Virginia Yanquilevich, Sitecom Marketing and Communications Manager. “Through the use of clear illustrations and pictures we explain how homeplugs work as well as the advantage of certain specifications. We also provide clear labels and a comparison chart to help the consumer make a choice.”
