Pylon offers a way for guests to connect to Wi-Fi


A Kickstarter campaign is underway for Pylon, a three-square-inch plaque that lives on the wall near a person’s home entrance. The plaque is pre-linked to a Wi-Fi base station and when a user waves their mobile device over Pylon as they enter a home, they're automatically connected to the host’s Wi-Fi network without entering a password.

The connection works with Near Field Communication (NFC) on Android, and by bumping the Pylon with iOS, Windows and BlackBerry devices. Chris Henseler, founder of Pylon, says it was created to streamline the process of connecting to a person’s Wi-Fi while bypassing the tedious task of entering an intricate or unknown password, all while security remains intact.

When a guest connects to a home network, the owner is notified via the Pylon app, where they can control the degree of access of each of their guests. Close friends can be granted access indefinitely when they’re in Wi-Fi range, while acquaintances may be granted access for only a few hours and intrusive neighbors can be left out with no access at all.
