Plume app

The Plume Adaptive WiFi system, Plume for short, is a WiFi mesh system. Like many mesh WiFi systems, Plume offers an app called HomePass. The Plume HomePass app is designed for Plume subscribers.

How the Plume WiFi app (HomePass) works is it allows Plume subscribers to optimize, adapt, and add features to their connected home system. In other words, subscribers can personalize and control their Plume WiFi mesh system from the app on their smartphone.

The app gives subscribers a visual display of their connected WiFi system. With the app, subscribers can view network connection and performance, see where all of the “pods” are located throughout the home, customize features, and reduce the need for technician costs and scheduling.

To get the Plume app, you need to invest in the entire Plume WiFi mesh system, since the app syncs with the Plume WiFi pods. WiFi mesh systems can be expensive.
