A Broadband Internet connection is required for the Phyn Plus.
The Internet connection for the Phyn Plus should be:
- Broadband speed, i.e. high-speed DSL, Fiber, Cable, Satellite, etc.
- “Always on”
- Available at the location where the Phyn Plus is installed
- Not on plan that is restricted by data caps or data throttling.**
**The Phyn Plus uploads approximately 200 Megabytes of data per day which equals about 6 Gigabytes of data per month.
Phyn recommends a data upload speed of 5 Mbps or higher.
An Internet connection using a Mobile Hotspot is not supported. Mobile Hotspot connections are not “Always on”. After a power outage such connections do not reconnect and would leave the home unprotected.
