Im goint to try order one soon
If you make point to point connect, wGrill to smart phones directly, it is as simple as iGrill. just search wifi signal of hl-link and connect it, then view in your phone 192.168.0.1 As wGrill has an outer antenna while iGrill uses an built-in antenna, wGrill has longer effect distance than iGrill.
To access wGrill to your home network is easy job too. Then you can view wGrill in all your home area. By adding CAT 5 or repeaters, effective distance can be much bigger
To access wgrill to Internet and to be able viewed worldwide needs a little of I.T. knowledge. Not everyone can do it.
At least WIFI can have much longer distance than bluetooth even though you do not have any I.T. knowledge
