Managed WiFi

Fast

By using enterprise-grade Access Points which are managed through our Cloud-based platform, you will have a WiFi network with excellent performance. In addition, we will make sure your WiFi network keeps operating without any issues.

Reliable

With our service we deliver a reliable WiFi network where you have a complete view of who is using your network. If necessary, you can block a user temporarily or permanently through our dashboard. Guest users are isolated from other users and devices on your network. 

Scalable

The WiFi network we deliver is able to handle large numbers of concurrent users. Whenever the network needs to expand to cover a larger area or to support more users, you simply order additional Access Points with us and install them. You can also have us arrange the installation for you.

For specific environments such as outdoor usage, we offer the choice of several other Access Points, allowing us to design, implement and manage the optimal WiFi network for you.

How does it work?

Once the WiFi network is installed you will see you have a private WiFi network and a public WiFi network for your guests. The users on private network and public network are isolated from each for security reasons. A guest user connects to your public WiFi network by following these steps:

  • connect to your public WiFi using the appropriate network name (SSID)
  • select one of the options offered
  • follow the steps for the chosen option, for example, login with Facebook

Upon success, the user is connected for the duration specified by you in the dashboard. When that time limit has been exceeded or the configured data transfer limit has been reached, the user will be forced to login again or is presented with a customised message when connecting again.

The collected email addresses can optionally be added to your MailChimp list in a fully automated fashion.

You can also limit the number of logins for a user within a specified time frame. For example, a user may use your guest WiFi network for 2 hours, every 24 hours.

Installation

For environments where a single Access Point is sufficient, the installation is very straightforward: you place the Access Point in the center of the area that needs to be covered (ceiling-mount of the Access Points is preferred). The Access Point, which is about the size and shape of a smoke detector, is connected to it’s power adapter* using a CAT5e or CAT6 ethernet cable. This adapter can be placed close to your internet router. The LAN port of the power adapter is then connected to a free port on your internet router, also using a CAT5e or CAT6 ethernet cable.

This way you only need to install a single ethernet cable between your router and the Access Point. Upon your request, or for more complex environments, we can arrange the installation for you. A site-survey can also be performed to make sure we have a clear view of the requirements and the environment.

As soon as the Access Point is connected to your router, it will connect to our management platform so that we can start to remotely manage your WiFi network and provide you the full feature set of our service.

*Power over Ethernet adapter, the Access Point is powered through the ethernet cable

  • Pancratius was advised to build a good WiFi network in and around our clubhouse with the help of Erik Slooff from Art or WiFi. He consulted Pancratius and also took care of the implementation of the installation. Pancratius is extremely satisfied with the advice, implementation, and post-sales support.

  • We were tasked with finding a captive portal solution for a large event and came across Art of WiFi. Erik was extremely helpful right from the beginning. Any questions we had he would reply promptly and give a very clear and concise answer. The setup was very simple and straightforward. Integration with UniFi was seamless. Pricing is very fair and I would highly recommend Art of WiFi be used for anyone looking for a captive portal solution.
    Scott Halinski, Systems EngineerMacKenzie-Childs
  • Erik Slooff and Art of Wifi are the real deal. They are fast, accurate, responsive, and helpful at every turn. They go above and beyond to ensure that your experience and deployment is as fast and painless as possible. I am extremely impressed with their Wifi portal and its integration with Unifi products and other systems that take advantage of webhooks. They went above and beyond outside of the SOW to assist me and ensure I was on the right path to achieve my goals. Aside from creating the entire guest portal, he provided documentation every step of the way, assisted me in securing my Unifi Controller and even had a 1:1 Skype session to provide a quick tutorial on a product that he has no stake in but I needed to integrate between the wifi portal and Hubspot. Erik Slooff takes pride in his work and is committed to customer service and client satisfaction. I will always recommend Art of Wifi.
