WiFi & Hotspot Software


Hotwireless’ Managed Hotspot / WiFi Solutions and Software has been installed across 100’s of commercial locations in South Africa since 2005.

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.

Mobile-enabled splash pages meet the expectations of the modern customer. Hotwireless’ Managed Hotspot / WiFi Solutions and Software come with pre-built skins which can be customised with your branding.

Cloud-based Hotspot Management

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

  • SMS – Access can be requested to mobile phones via SMS – additional fees are applicable.

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 timetraffic or bandwidth limits so 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.

Supported Devices

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 hotspot 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.
