After creating a password protected Cisco Connect Cloud account, consumers can have access to multiple home networks from their mobile, tablet app, or Web browser and give guests Internet access, set parental controls or add new devices to their network. Cisco also announced the availability of its Cisco Connect Cloud mobile app which provides access to Cisco Connect Cloud on a smartphone or tablet, while at home or on the go. One breakthrough feature with Cisco Connect Cloud is SimpleTap. SimpleTap lets consumers connect devices to their Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Router with as little as one tap of a button or with a quick swipe or scan of a device or tag. Additionally, Cisco unveiled the first set of mobile apps from third-party developers that provide extended experiences to Linksys Smart Wi-Fi routers. There are six new developer apps including an app that lets people search and ?beam? online videos to a Smart TV or AirPlay compatible device; an app that helps install home monitoring cameras and enables monitoring at home and on the go, and apps that give parents easy ways to keep their children safe online. ]]>
