The Gift That Keeps on Giving: Your Futuristic Smart Home

Vince Sales

Wish there were one gift that you could give your family that everyone would love? A gift that would be enjoyed beyond the Christmas season and well into 2020? You’d be forgiven if such a gift sounds as real to you as Santa Claus, but the perfect gift for everyone does exist. What’s more, all it takes is one upgrade: MyRepublic’s 1Gbps Fibre Broadband plan with Google Nest Wifi. With this gift, your home will be transformed into a Smart Home and your entire family will be living in the future!

This simple upgrade starts with faster Internet speed, but it doesn’t stop there. Faster, better Internet can transform your home life and open up a world of high tech possibilities. It’s truly the gift that keeps on giving. Here’s how:

  1. Sleigh Ride… of Speed!

If you’re still counting your home Internet speed in Mbps, it’s time to give everyone in your family the number one thing on their Christmas lists: faster Internet! 1Gpbs speed equals 1,000 Mbps, so that means you’ll have more than enough speed for everyone in the family. And as both our work and our entertainment is increasingly online, more speed simply means a richer life with more possibilities…

  1. Joy to the World: Wi-Fi Everywhere

Do you have dead spots in your house? You can now say goodbye to those annoying areas where Wi-Fi signal is poor (or non-existent). You can choose to get MyRepublic’s 1Gbps Fibre Broadband plan with Google Nest Wifi (we highly recommend it!), a new mesh Wi-Fi system that has many advantages over the routers of yesteryear.

With a Nest Wifi router, you can cover your whole home (up to 200 sqm) with speedy Wi-Fi, and, should you need it, it’s easy to add Wifi points for larger houses or homes with tricky layouts.1

Getting Wi-Fi everywhere has never been easier, but wait, there’s more…

  1. Naughty or Nice: Easy Parental Control

Google’s Nest Wifi was designed to be easy to set up. All you need to do is connect to the Google Home app that gives you complete control – all in a simple interface.2 From there, you can do things like create a guest network for visitors. Or you can apply parental controls to your kids’ devices. You can restrict their searches, making the Internet a safer place for them, or you can enforce an Internet-free time, say, before they go to sleep.

  1. Google Assistant Is Coming to Town

If you haven’t gotten a smart speaker for your home yet, you should know that it can be life-changing! Nest Wifi has a speaker and microphone built-in, so that means it’s not just a router – it comes with the Google Assistant for hands-free help at home.

With the Google Assistant, all you need to do is say “Hey Google” to get your Assistant to do a multitude of tasks such as playing music, finding answers on Google Search, managing everyday tasks and controlling smart devices around the home.2  It’s like having your very own Jarvis from the Iron Man movies, and you’ll soon ask yourself how you ever lived without it.

  1. Jingle Bell Rock: Music, Movies and More

Did someone mention music? Yes, your Google Nest Wifi with the Google Assistant can play your favourite music with a simple voice command. But that’s only the tip of the iceberg.  Pair a speaker with the Google Assistant and Google Chromecast to stream high definition 4K videos with just your voice. It’s easy with your speedy MyRepublic 1Gbps Internet connection. The fast and reliable fibre broadband connection makes streaming music and videos a dream.

Your Google Nest Mini can become a helpful addition to another room in your house with features like Broadcast. Just say ‘Hey Google, Broadcast ‘dinner’s ready'” to broadcast this message to the Nest Minis and Nest Wifi points in your house.
