Tips to Keep Everyone in Your Home Connected This Holiday Season
posted by: Mile High Mamas
If you’re hosting guests this holiday season, you know how important it is to keep everyone connected. From the dinner table to each guest room and beyond, it’s important to keep the family connected all season long. With the Xfinity xFi Gateway and Xfinity Voice Remote voice commands, your family and friends can stay in-touch all season long, enjoy WiFi from anywhere in your home with xFi pods, and more.
“What’s my WiFi Password?” and other voice commands for your holiday guests
When your holiday guests arrive, they’ll likely have one question— “what’s your WiFi password?” If you’re not home to provide the answer or you aren’t entirely sure yourself, your guests can simply say “What’s my WiFi password?” into the Xfinity Voice Remote and the info they need to get connected will appear right on your television screen. What’s more, the info appears on the bottom of your screen, which means it won’t interrupt the holiday movies you’re watching.
Bonus tip: Get festive with your WiFi password! Beat the most commonly asked question from your guests (besides “when are we eating?”) and refresh your Gateway’s password to something holiday-themed and easy to remember through xfinity.com/myxfi or the Xfinity app. Identify your network and select “Edit WiFi” to change your password. Just be sure to change it after everyone leaves.
Keeping guests connected all throughout your home
If you have a larger home and are looking to keep all your guests connected (from the kitchen, to each guest bedroom and beyond), you can use xFi Pods to extend your WiFi area. xFi pods act as WiFi extenders and help guests gain access to your network across your home, even on other floors of the home that are distant from your xFi Gateway.
Pause WiFi at dinner time, set up “bedtime mode”, and more with the Xfinity app
Xfinity customers with the xFi Gateway can also download the Xfinity app, which gives you access to admin tools that allow you to pause your WiFi anytime, set up bedtime mode, create a PIN to activate PIN-protected Parental Controls on xFi, and more. That means you can pause WiFi access during family meals or pause WiFi at a designated bedtime for younger guests.
All of this and more are available with the xFi Gateway and Xfinity Voice Remote, working together to make your holiday season simple, easy, and jolly!
