Posted by Michelle Howard

WebWatch, the all-in-one Wi-Fi hotspot, cellular data and high-definition television (HDTV) antenna from Shakespeare, shares signals for up to 32 on-board users.

WebWatch delivers Internet with speeds up to 4G from a nearby Wi-Fi hotspot or cellular network with a user-supplied data-only SIM card. It provides greater range than a mobile device or laptop.

The integrated receiver switches automatically between Wi-Fi signals and cellular data to maintain and optimize Internet connectivity. WebWatch is easily managed through a web browser or free mobile app.

Its built-in HDTV antenna delivers sharp, high-definition local TV network programming. Because it's over-the-air digital, WebWatch works during storms when cable and satellite often fail.

WebWatch is universally compatible and simple to set up. Highly efficient, it runs on 12-24V DC and draws a maximum of 1 amp. At only 13" high, 11.75" in diameter and 3.85 lbs., it's easy to fit into crowded deck or tower space. It comes with a 25' power cord, and 25' Ethernet and 25' coax TV cables.

WebWatch WCT-1 costs $899.95; WebWatch WC-1 without HDTV is $850.95.
