WiFi Extender

Tired of Wi-Fi deadspots?

We all know how frustrating it is to run out of Wi-Fi with wireless devices, so you can’t browse the internet, stream videos, send/receive e-mails… on your iPad®, Android® tablet, smartphone, TV, media player, etc. Now you can turn any power socket into a Wi-Fi hotspot by extending your Router’s Wi-Fi range by up to 2x the distance, all in a compact, portable and easy-to-use device.

Next Generation AC Wireless

Using the latest 802.11ac technology to enable super fast, lag-free data transfer speeds of up to 750Mbps with AC compatible devices.

Instant Set up

By pressing the WPS button on the TM-750 AC and your Router, they will automatically connect to each other and share the same Wi-Fi name and password.

Smart Wi-Fi Positioning

With the intelligent signal identifier, you can quickly find the best location to place the TM-750 AC to get the best Wi-Fi coverage around your property.

Dual Band Wireless

Most range extenders only work on the congested and slow 2.4Ghz band which suffers interference from microwaves, Bluetooth, wireless devices, ovens, cordless phones, etc, reducing and even disrupting the wireless signal.

5Ghz has more bandwidth and less interference providing you with a faster signal and better connection without interruption.

Built in QoS traffic prioritisation technology is designed to deliver your time-sensitive Internet traffic efficiently so you can enjoy smooth video, music streaming, and gaming performance.

The advanced security solutions of 128-bit AES, WEP, WPA, WPA2 & EAP encryptions are included for that extra peace-of-mind.

Access Point

Out of your Router’s Wi-Fi range? You can create a dual band Wi-Fi hotspot by connecting an Ethernet cable from your Router or Switch directly to the TM-750 AC.

Ethernet Bridge

It can also act as a wireless ethernet bridge if you wish to convert a wireless signal to an ethernet cable, so that an ethernet device can connect to your wireless network.

Secure

The advanced security solutions of 128-bit AES, WEP, WPA, WPA2 & EAP encryptions are included for that extra peace-of-mind.

*750Mbps is the maximum theoretical Powerline data rate. Actual throughput will vary depending on environment.

Turn any electrical outlet into a high-speed network connection

With the TM-600 HP you can extend your home network by using electrical sockets. Forget about drilling and rewiring cable throughout your house, with the TM-600HP you can have internet anywhere in the house (on the same circuit) in a simple and convenient plug ‘n’ play system with no set up required.

Complying with the latest HomePlug AV2 standard, the TM-600 HP gives you a data transmission speed of up to 600Mbps. Together, with the built-in QoS that gives bandwidth intensive and sensitive applications a higher priority to remain stable and fast.

Forget Wireless

No need to worry about wireless signal strength and walls reducing signal quality.

Simply Plug ‘n’ Play

Connect your router into one adapter and plug the second adapter into another power outlet and you are ready to go!

HD Multimedia Streaming

Connect your Internet-ready TV, Blu-ray™ player, IPTV set-top box or gaming console through any power outlet in your property for super-fast HD transfer speeds.

Secure

With its powerful 128-bit AES encryption, your network is secure and protected. Simply press the Pair button on each unit to securely connect to each other.

How to setup Hik-Connect
Hik-Connect is a new platform from Hikvision designed to make setting up remote access quicker and easier than using a DDNS or static IP. With this setup guide, you will no longer need any port forwarding. It’s as easy as registering your customer an account, then scanning the QR code on the recorder.

Before you start you’ll need your customer’s email address or mobile number, you’ll need access to their chosen email or phone to receive a verification code, and you’ll need access to the NVR or DVR.

Setting up the recorder
1. First, gain access to the DVR/NVR
2. Right click and navigate to Menu>Configuration>Network>Platform Access, and tick the Enable box
3. You’ll now be asked to read and accept the terms and conditions
4. When prompted, set a Verification code.  This can be any alpha-numeric code between 6 and 12 characters
5. The Status will now show Online.  If not, please see troubleshooting at the end of this guide.

Setting up the Hik-connect app
6. From yours or the customers phone, download the Hik-Connect App from the App store or Google Play
7. Once installed, open the app and you’ll be presented with the login screen, tap on Register
8. Follow the on screen instructions to setup a Hik-connect account. You will need to verify the account by using a valid email address or phone number

10. You have now registered the Hik-Connect account. Make a note of the username and password. These login details will need to re-enter if their phone is reset, the app is reinstalled, or they want to use Hik-connect on another device.

Adding the recorder to Hik-connect
11. You’ll now be taken into the app and prompted to add a device. Click the + symbol to add a device and the phones camera will open.
12. Now on the recorder navigate to the Platform Access page, right click and go to Menu>Configuration>Network>Platform Access.
13. Scan the QR code with the phones camera.
14. If prompted, enter the verification code you created and skip the port settings
15. The cameras connected to the recorder will now be visible on the mobile Hik-Connect app.  Select the camera you want to view and click Start Live View

 

Troubleshooting

I haven’t received a verification code: Please check your spam folders and email filters. If the problem persists consider registering with a different email or mobile number.

Hik-Connect status is offline: Ensure the enable box is ticked on the ‘Platform Access’ page and that your unit has a working connection to the internet.  Check the network settings are correct for the network you are connected to.

I get a message saying the device is already registered: Devices can only be added to a single account. To view the device on multiple phones or tablets, you just need to install Hik-Connect app, and then log in with the details of the Hik-Connect account the device is registered to.

I don’t have an option for platform access: Please contact your supplier/installer with your device’s serial number and current firmware version as the unit may need a firmware update. This information can be found in the ‘Maintenance’ menu.

RJ45 Wiring for CAT5/CAT5e/CAT6

Cabling transmits information, and to get that information to where it needs to go the correct connections must be make to an RJ45 connector.  The cable run needs to terminate into a connector, and that connector needs a jack to plug into.  The Registered Jack 45 (RJ45) is a standard type of physical connector for networking cables used widely in networking.  Modern Ethernet cables feature a small plastic plug on each end of the cable.  That plug is inserted into the RJ45 jacks of Ethernet devices. 

RJ45 plugs feature eight (8) pins to which the copper cores of a cable interface electrically.  Each plug has eight locations (positions), spaced about 1mm apart.  Individual wires are inserted using special cable crimping tools.

Wiring for a RJ45 plug shown below.

 
 

Wiring for RJ45 Jack Sockets

The RJ45 port is the network port on a computer.  This socket has many names.  Also known as the Ethernet port, the network adapter, the network jack or the RJ45 jack.  A “port” is another name for a socket on a computer, as is “jack.” The RJ45 ports wired directly onto the network adapter inside the computer, and so is the cable interface to that device.  In this instance you will be wiring an RJ45 Wall Socket.  To wire your cable into the socket use an IDC insertion tool to insert each wire core into it’s corresponding terminal.
