What are the advantages of having a Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Account?

The Linksys Smart Wi-Fi is a free service bundled with the new Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Routers.  This application allows you to configure your router settings locally or remotely over the Internet.  After setting up the router, you have to create a Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Account which you will need to activate and associate with your router.

Linksys Smart Wi-Fi allows you to access your router, configure, and check your home network instantly from wherever there is an Internet connection.  This service makes it convenient for you to manage your network, since you can do it locally or remotely via web or mobile app.
