In its 50th year, CES 2017 was the biggest it’s ever been. Not only did the scale of the event break all sorts of its own records, but it also showcased some amazing advances in technology.
‘Innovation’ was the buzz word of the week and it could not have more spot on. CSO of Starz, John Penney, was quoted saying of that this year “CES and its attendees are working to build a better future for us all” and that captured the atmosphere of the whole show. This was particularly the case in Eureka Park’s start-up village in which over 600 companies, including Fing, were exhibiting new and exciting products. Everywhere you looked there were innovations aiming to make the world a healthier, greener, safer and more enjoyable place to live.
The app may have been around since 2009 but CES 2017 was the debut show for Fing! Having spent years behind their computer screens building and developing the Fing network scanner, Founders Marco and Carlo were blown away to have over 500 fans visit the booth. It was incredible to meet so many avid users of the app and see how Fing helps them with their own network scanning. After the support we received from over backers for our new home network security device it was also amazing to actually meet some of the people who have purchased Fingbox! We were able to do real life demos of how exactly our backer’s network security boxes will protect their Wi-Fi when it arrives at their home in June. One of the features that was getting the most attention was Fingbox’s Home Digital Fence feature that enables users to detect any device that has Wi-Fi enabled within the vicinity of a home. The Home Digital Fence feature is particularly handy for knowing when a delivery arrived, when your dog walker passed by, when your kids got home or if something unusual is happening near your house.
