Some users might be familiar with Ubiquiti's consumer Amplifi line, which currently consists of routers and mesh point network extenders.
Now, they're Kickstarting a model which automatically VPNs to the base router from remote sites. They're marketing it for travelers, to be able to connect to their home wifi from hotels, or those with multiple houses. Here's the Kickstarter video:
It's an interesting device and not something I've seen before. Question is: does anyone see any surveillance use for these devices, given the rising demand for more secure remote access?
Obviously, if you're traveling and want to check in on your home or business this could be an option, but it requires wifi or a wired connection, making it less useful than a VPN you can connect to with your mobile device. But for many unskilled users, this is likely a much easier option than setting up a VPN, no?
