When to use a 3G or 4G LTE Wifi Router?
The router is the first Home Automation equipment that we need for any installation Home Automation by Wifi network, since all modules, will need to be connected to the internet.
These Wifi 3G and 4G LTE routers will be used mainly in second homes, which is where we usually do not have a fixed line or anywhere else that we do not have an internet connection.
Installing a Wifi, 3G or 4G LTE Router in a second home we can remotely control from anywhere with our Smartphone mobile phone, heating, air conditioning, Wifi security cameras, Wifi irrigation programmer, Lights, the robot lawn mower with Wifi, smart plugs, alarms with Wifi and more home automation equipment.
How to choose the most suitable 3G or 4G LTE Wifi Router?
To choose the most suitable router, we have to take into account the coverage that best reaches us, whether it is 3G or 4G LTE to choose the most appropriate.
Another fact that we have checked and that we have given much importance, is that all the routers that we recommend are routers that we can install the sim card directly in the router, with what we get a very stable Internet connection without cuts.
Other doubts that may arise when buying a 3G or 4G LTE Wifi router would be whether the connected computers consume a large volume of data continuously, since the data would normally be limited.
If we make a controlled use of the data we will not have problems, because in the tests carried out by us, the Home Automation equipment that consume the most data are the Wifi IP cameras (but only when we connect to watch video live).
To serve as a reference, we have connected to a 3G D-Link DWR-512 Wifi Router, an Indoor Wifi Camera, another Outdoor Wifi Camera, a Wifi Irrigation Programmer and a Smart Wifi Plug with a data contract of 2 GB per month and we have had enough.
