This gateway unit (currently in development and to be released in March/April 2017) will connect directly to household WiFi, allowing the Router Gateway to utilize the client's current Wifi router to communicate with scheduling software. Essentially it means clients gain more independence and control over their irrigation scheduling.
Data usage of the Router Gateway is minimal (up to 8mb a month) and would not cause lag in the client's internet connection, nor can the client's Wifi password be hacked via the gateway unit. The Router Gateway and system software is protected with strong encryption, that same encryption would be present in the new development to protect the client's privacy and preserve data integrity.
This new gateway unit would truly upgrade the Router Gateway system to a full-blooded WiFi System.
