Add-ons: Family Zone Cyber Safety

General info

The Family Zone add-on allows you to run an extensive Cyber Safety service on top of you or your customer's IgniteNet APs.

This add-on gives the Family Zone end user the ability to:

  • Set up content filtering profiles based on age or other attributes
  • View website usage reports and receive alerts
  • Set internet access limits and time schedules
  • Limit access to games and social media sites
  • And much more!

You can read more about the Family Zone solution, and the benefit to you as a service provider, on our support site.

Note: this add-on is still a beta feature. If you'd like to join our beta program, please contact info@ignitenet.com.

Pricing

You will not be charged for the first 30 days of Family Zone service as part of the free trial period.

The fee for the Family Zone add-on after the free trial period is a low $6.00 USD per month, per site, with up to 5 IgniteNet APs allowed in a site.

You will be billed for this add-on through your IgniteNet Cloud, just like any of the other monthly add-on services.

This fee also allows you or your customer to manage the cyber profiles of up to 4 end-user devices (such as laptops, mobile phones, etc) outside of the home network via the Family Zone mobile app.

Any number of end-user devices can be managed within a Family Zone-controlled network when using a Family Zone-enabled IgniteNet access point.

Supported devices

This add-on is available on the GW-AC1200 product model. We'll be adding support for the other HeliOS-based standard wifi products in the next couple of weeks.
