Family Zone Box, higher performing WiFi
Powerful 1200AC Dual-Band Gigabit 802.11ac WiFi access point. Simply plugs into your existing home router. Includes 4 LAN ports. Connect all devices your kids use through your Family Zone Box (via LAN port or WiFi) to impose routines and internet access restrictions at home.
Family & Guest WiFi networks
The Family Zone Box broadcasts 3 WiFi networks - Family, Unfiltered & Guest. The Guest WiFi network is a safe filtered WiFi network for guests in your home. Users on this cannot access your internal home network (eg. files, media, printer sharing).
The Unfiltered WiFi network is a secure but unfiltered WiFi network. We recommend it for media streaming and parental use only. Google restrictions is not available. We suggest devices shared with kids are never connected to this network.
By default Family Zone’s filtered networks impose safe search restrictions on Google & Bing. And by default all other search engines are blocked for users under 18. You can change this setting if you wish.
By default Family Zone’s filtered networks impose strict adult content restrictions on YouTube. This blocks all adult rated or unrated content.
Does your family share a computer or a tablet? If so, Family Zone’s unique home tools web page allows your family to quickly & securely “borrow” devices using personal 4-digit PINs. It will then apply this user’s settings to the shared device.
Another Family Zone innovation. All Family Zone Boxes work together in policy harmony. So your child’s internet access at your home will be exactly the same at any other home or business using the Family Zone.
Guest access & alerts
As new devices and registered users connect to your Family Zone WiFi you will be notified by email. You can assign new devices to family members or guests or quickly block access.
Through Family Zone’s innovative roaming feature guests on your network get the access policies set by their respective parents. But what if those parents are much more relaxed about internet access than you? That’s where the Safety Net comes in. This applies in addition to guest settings, meaning anything you feel strongly should not be accessed on your network, will be blocked.
Family Zone’s home networking features are all controlled in the cloud through the Family Zone Web Account or Zone Manager App. No need to install software on devices, run firmware updates or the like. From your PC, mobile or tablet you can access the Family Zone and be in complete control.Powerful 1200AC Dual-Band Gigabit 802.11ac WiFi access point. Simply plugs into your existing home router.
