A lot of the recent updates have brought a smoother experience without being clunky. Enjoying the new features and hope they keep it like this so the learning curve stays easy. QR scan for setup never worked for me on my purple but did for my blue. Since I setup over Bluetooth anyway it never made a big issue.

Probably one of the best network apps I've tried so far. It has all the options I want and more. Definitely made for more advanced network users compared to something like Google WiFi but I like that about it. It's shown me a lot about my network and what the outside is doing to my devices. Already blocked one malicious attempt at my network. I would recommend this to others.

Excellent app and device ! I bought the gold version of the firewalla box. I love it, and the kids hate it - very grainular control over what's allowed to happen and when on your network. The documentation is also excellent. My only issue is the inability to back up the firewall configuration to a SD or share.
