About this app

This app is the command center for your Velop system and Linksys Smart WiFi routers.

The app offers two subscription services: Linksys Aware for whole-home motion detection and Linksys Shield, which provides network security and keeps kids safe on the web.

• Remote Access – All you need is the internet.
• Dashboard – Your WiFi's vital stats on one page.
• Guest Access – Give friends internet access, but keep personal data secure.

Linksys Aware is a premium subscription for Velop tri-band users. Linksys Aware provides whole-home motion detection for mesh WiFi systems.

Great app that lets me check the status, who's on, set priority devices, test the internet speed and much more. 6/13 Update. Not sure what happened to the app as I have not used it in a while. But it will not allow me access to my router anymore. Very frustrating. I have submitted several email to complain of the past week or so. Hopefully they fix the app.

This app is a waist of time when trying to add additional nodes to the one that's already setup. 3 Nodes were connected previously together and were reset, but now cannot connect them together. It takes forever to scan and it not connecting at all, trying to connect nodes for an hour with no success. App had Give us Call option for the support and it doesn't work. Nodes are visible in WIFI networks and Bluetooth network, they can be parred and connected to via Wi-Fi, but not thru app.

So far the setup of my new device was very easy. Some features of the app were hard to use, due to the placement of elements in the user interface. For instance, when I tried to put a device in the priority list, I couldn't save the change. The save element in the upper right corner was too close to the phone's upper bar. I went into the website and made the change there, so there is an alternative path. I wish there were more options to export logs for analysis.
