Perfect WiFi, Engineered to Enhance Your Home!
Blue Cave's unique styling and powerful performance are both made possible by our sophisticated WiFi engineering. The ultra-slim circuit board and custom graphene-coated heatsinks were specially designed to make best use of the internal space.
Internal antennas are often a compromise: they allow a neater external design, but they can be prone to performance-sapping interference. On Blue Cave the four fully-optimized antennas actually outperform some external antennas by up to 28% on Bandwdith Benchmarks.
The location and orientation of the antennas relative to each other and to the internal circuitry was carefully decided by experiment to give the best possible WiFi signal in all directions: the widest coverage was attained with three vertical antennas and one horizontal antenna that helps transmit the WiFi signal across floors.
Keeping Cool with Nanotechnology
The dual ASUS-designed heatsinks on the main circuit board maximize the surface area available for cooling, while taking full advantage of the shape of the interior space. These advanced heatsinks use a graphene coating with amazing heat-dissipation properties that far outperforms standard heatsink materials.
Compact By Design
To enable Blue Cave's compact and unobtrusive styling, the specially designed circuit board is half the size of a normal 4x4 router board, and it's separated into two overlapping sections. Special electronic engineering techniques were employed to avoid the signal-leakage problems often associated with such an arrangement.
Make the Internet a Safer Place for Everyone
All your family members, young or old, are exposed to the dangers of internet every single moment they're online. Disguised cyber threats can sneak in to steal your private data, or your kids may accidentally encounter inappropriate content during their ever-growing screen time.
Blue Cave includes Advanced Parental Controls to give you total peace of mind, with commercial grade security for your home network and comprehensive, easy control of the online experience for each family member and each device, all via the mobile app.

Get Ready for a Smarter Home
Your home is getting smarter than ever, so your router should be smart too. Blue Cave works with IFTTT and Amazon Alexa, so you can integrate Blue Cave into your smart home with ease to make your life easier.
For example, you can tell Alexa to suspend the WiFi so you can have a family dinner without interruptions! Or use IFTTT to get an automatic email notification when your kids get home. Hosting a party? Enable the guest WiFi network just for your friends, and you can even change the color of your home lighting when they connect!
Network Control in Your Way
Blue Cave takes the pain out of managing your home network. It's easy to set up and easy to keep an eye on what's happening, via the intuitive PC interface or the ASUS Router app. With just a few taps or clicks, you can see when new devices connect or when new updates become available, and change settings to suit your needs.
