Hotwireless are hotspot specialists and their solutions are easy for clients to use and maintain. The important thing to note about this software is that it resides on the wireless hardware that Hotwireless supplies meaning that there is no software installed on your computers.
Once the hardware installation necessary to run a wireless hotspot is completed at your location, the software allows Hotwireless to both maintain and troubleshoot your hotspot remotely, and keeps control over your guests’ usage and the billing thereof, allowing you to focus on your core business.
The software allows you to receive fully customised reports on the usage of your hotspot and also on any income generated by customer use. Hotwireless can provide daily, weekly or monthly reports detailing internet usage by your customers and full information on the revenue that you have generated through your hotspot.
Hotwireless can manage unlimited hotspot locations from their Control Centre. All changes are done (change access packages, replace LOGOs, change HTML codes, etc) are available in remote locations in real-time. Router alert features will alert Hotwireless if a device goes offline. All user data can be seen when it happens and can also be exported.
Solutions for Free Wi-Fi
Easy access for users: they accept the terms and conditions and click on login.
Connect your business directly with social profiles.
Vouchers – Limit accesses by distributing unique voucher codes within a predefined time or data usage and bandwidth throttling.
SMS – Access can be requested to mobile phones via SMS – additional fees are applicable.
Family – Enable parental controls by giving vouchers to your kids which allows them to use WiFi for a limited time.
Create a Pay-PER-USE Hotspot
Charge your customers using your own pricing. The software comes with a built-in revenue stream so you can accept direct credit card or Paypal payments instantly.
You can offer a Free Trial with limited time, traffic or bandwidth limitsso users can try out the service before paying. You can also provide limited free access per day, or week or month. Even the free trial can be valuable if you use it as a marketing tool.
Hotwireless supplies the hardware and firmware which you can use to run the hotspot directly – No additional computers or software required to run the hotspot. The installed hardware will communicate with Hotwireless’ web, database and radius servers and handle redirection and authentication.
You can also add a hotspot gateway to your existing network. In this case, you don’t need to change your existing configuration to make it compatible with the system, you only need to add one more device.
While the software uses its own ecosystem to collect and store any activity that happens in your hotspots, you can access them remotely via the powerful API.

3rd September 2018 Hotwireless has been rendering Wi-Fi services to SAVF Jeugtuiste for two and a half years. Wi-Fi service is very good. When problems arise there is always a willingness to attend to the problem immediately by Joe Van den Berg. He is a friendly person which makes it easy to communicate with him and he takes charge for solving any queries we have. In the end he always finds a solution.

Guests surf the net in the comfort of their own rooms..!! I will definitely recommend Hotwireless as your provider for a managed WiFi service. We've had excellent service from the word go. Their consultants are never too busy to help, and have always helped us in a professional friendly manner whenever we had a problem. Best of all, our contract with Hotwireless pays for itself every month. Some of our guests only come to our B&B because we have fast and reliable WiFi.
Dear Russell, I would like to take this opportunity in thanking both you and your colleagues for your very prompt and efficient service that you provide. On many occassions I and I am sure other non IT type persons, find themselves in a state of despair, however, it is pleasing to note that people like yourselves are always there to support us. I wish you and your company a very successful future.
I had the Hotwireless system installed a couple of years ago at my guesthouse. It certainly is the only way to control the guests' usage of the internet facility. Both Joe and Russell are always very helpful and their after sales service excellent. I have no hesitation in recommending this system.
Dear Hotwireless We as the management of the Afrique Boutique Hotel would like to thank you for the friendly and quick service that we receive from your company. Your service is of 100% standard to us and you're always willing to assist where possible. We would gladly distribute your professional name and service to all our guests and people we deal with on a regular basis. Thank you for quality service at any time of day!
The Sunward Park Guesthouse & Conference Centre has been using the services of HOTWIRELESS for a while now, and I can strongly recommend their services. They are always prepare to walk the extra mile with friendly, professional service and good quality products WITH GREAT AFTER SALES SERVICE!
We have a LTE router at home with a 25Gig per month limit. The data is shared by the family. Before we installed Hotwireless, our cap was reached by the 10th of the month and I had the added expense of topping up throughout the month. I had no control and no idea which of my family members were using so much data. Now I have a great solution which saves me hundreds of rands every month. Each of my kids get a 5Gig voucher at the beginning of the month. Once the voucher is used up, they no longer have access to the internet and cannot run up my data bill! I have control and can decide on top-ups on my terms. I can also use the vouchers to incentivise my kids now 🙂 I would highly recommend this service to any household that doesn't have uncapped data!
