Ratings and Reviews
Perfect WiFi blocker
The developer of this app is amazing to create such a program that VM cannot !!! Perfect app and really can’t commend him enough. Very happy with this purchase and advise one and all who need this kind of blocker for there children or even young adults. Follow instructions on setting up and the app is self explanatory really , you will soon learn the in and out’s. Only thing to remember is you need to create a schedule before you can apply it to a user I stumbled a little there but worked it out within a few minutes. Buy and enjoy. And a big thank you once again. Keep up the good work and development of your products :)
Perfect for family
WiFi blocker is really easy to use even if you are a technophobe like me .You can easily see whose on what and turn it off-magically the kids appear again ! If there is a problem the email support is excellent .Its a family essential .
Brilliant App which actually makes the rubbish software on the VM Hub3 Work properly.
See and custom name all devices connected to your network, And even setup schedules for individual devices, Which the Hub3 CANNOT do by itself.
Well done Stuart and his crew.
