Remote operation made beautifully simple. That’s the best way to describe the new SmartLink capability included in SmartSDR Version 2.0 available immediately for download. Finally, remote operation that just works. No boxes to buy, no complicated VPN to set up, no remote desktop, no computer required, and no complexity. Just download, upgrade, purchase, register, and operate from anywhere at any time. Remote so simple it’s practically magic!
When you register your radio on the FlexRadio cloud server, you have the convenient option of using your Google or Facebook login or create your own secure account credentials. From that point you can securely connect from any remote Maestro, PC, Laptop, iPhone, or iPad. If you have multiple radios, they all show up in the radio chooser. Simply select the radio and our server securely connects the remote client device directly to the radio so you can operate just as you would running SmartSDR at your home station. You can even use logging applications remotely using the new SmartLink enabled SmartSDR CAT interface.
