Home is where the hub is

The TP-LINK SR20 Smart Home Router with Touchscreen is the central intelligence hub for devices throughout the home, enabling consumers to control their devices and automate functions tailored to their preferences. With the SR20, consumers can use their smartphone, tablet or the router’s user-friendly touchscreen to monitor and customise interactions between their devices, including cameras, light bulbs, sensors, thermostats and other smart home products.

abYour home, your experience

The TP-LINK SR20 Smart Home Router with Touchscreen enables several scenarios in the smart home – without sacrificing connectivity performance – such as having the lights turn on when homeowners walk through the door or automatically setting the thermostat to a desired temperature. Compatibility with ZigBee, Z-Wave and Wi-Fi allows functionality across a wide range of smart devices from different manufacturers. Additionally, the TP-LINK SR20 Smart Home Router with Touchscreen can send push notifications to consumers via the Kasa mobile app, so they are always in tune with the safety and functionality of their home, by notifying homeowners when the lights are left on or sending instant alerts if smoke or water leaks are detected.
