The AX8400 will be available in the United States in the spring or summer. A single node will cost $ 450, a pack of two will cost you $ 850, and a set of three will cost $ 1,200. It should hit other markets later in the year.
Meanwhile, Linksys revealed the rest of its Aware motion detection platform. The subscription service detects movement via WiFi signals to help protect your home. Aware will soon be able to extend home coverage by leveraging third-party connected devices, such as Wemo smart sockets and Belkin smart speakers.
Linksys also promises an improved live graph, which will show historical and real-time data on motion activity. The Belkin-owned brand aims to bring the Aware Update to its app in the US in March or April, and then to other markets as part of a phased rollout. After a 90 day trial, Linksys Aware costs $ 3 / month or $ 25 / year.
