802.11ac Wi-Fi Touchscreen Router + Smart Home Hub

Product page

This device was crowdfunded via a Kickstarter which ran in early 2013.

ZigBee and Z-Wave radios are included to allow the router

to function as a home automation platform.
  • "CN1F-B" is silkscreened on the FCC EUT's main board.
  • "CN1F-T" is silkscreened on the port expansion board.

While the manuf. of this unit is not currently known, the manuf.

of the non-plus Almond seems to have been Wintec.
