We are excited to announce beta access to the highly anticipated feature for our Aria devices called "Bridge Mode." This innovative firmware update allows two Aria devices to create a wireless bridge between two machines or between a machine and a router, using the LoRa radio for its impressive range and penetration abilities. We're talking about miles here, with no directional setup required!
Designed specifically for use in solar inverters and industrial scenarios, Bridge Mode offers an innovative solution for connecting devices in challenging environments. With the LoRa radio, our Aria devices offer unparalleled range and penetration abilities, allowing you to connect machines that are miles apart or located in challenging environments. Plus, with military-grade security and no recurring fees, you can trust that your connections are secure and cost-effective.
It's important to note that Bridge Mode is a new and independent feature for Aria devices that allows them to perform a different function than their normal usage. You can continue to use your Aria devices for their normal functions, or you can use two Arias in Bridge Mode to connect machines in challenging environments when needed. This gives you two great options to conquer any connectivity situation with the same device.
Please note that while Bridge Mode may work for other internet connections, it is not designed or intended for use as a personal internet connection for devices like laptops or smartphones. We recommend using a traditional internet service provider for personal internet use. Instead, Bridge Mode is specifically designed for solar inverters and industrial scenarios, and it is best suited for those applications. Your mileage may vary if you try to use it for other purposes.
If you are interested in collaborating with us in this beta test for Bridge Mode, please don't hesitate to contact us. As with other early access tests, we'll want to be in close contact to quickly refine the experience with you. We can't wait to see how our beta members take advantage of this new feature and the unique benefits it offers. Stay tuned for updates on the availability of Bridge Mode for all users.
