After a rough first week with the system, everything seems to be working fine. No dead spots and no more constant drops in internet connection. Now with the ability to add custom DNS servers I can go back to using OpenDNS. The only thing missing is the option to see how the nodes are interacting with the hub and if the connection is solid or poor. I had to do a lot of moving around to find the best spots in the house for them to be stable.
This app is awful. The refresh functionality is useless along with the enormous amounts of false alerts. And with all those alerts there is no way to clear them all at once. I wouldn't recommend the Luma system to anyone and will likely replace mine with either the LinkSys or Eero system.
Allows you to easily manage, monitor and block threats, prioritize devices and conveniently grant guest access, among other things. It doesn't have all of the options and functions one would expect in a wireless router, but it is useful in its simplicity. Security is good, but you can't simply unblock a site that Luma erroneously blocks.
Overall, very good. No dead spots in my home now, and throughput is excellent. Would like the ability to set the DNS servers though. The setup forces you to use your ISP's...
Features that are missing: 1-Modify the broadcast channel and band , my neighborhood has way too many WiFi connections and all my devices are AC capable, I don't want to use a slower 2.4 g band and I want to choose my own channel . 2-Speed...Luma never connects to more than 466Mbps , with my old AC router I would get over 700 on some devices. 3-constant drops... this has improved with new version but I still get one or two daily. The app now correctly shows online and offline . 4-ability to turn off remote access. I would like the app just to work when connected to my network,perhaps be able to login via a Web page instead of the app like most routers.
I was concerned that I couldn't control it. The channels it picked sucked. After a few weeks I went back and used wifi analyzer to check it and the Luma's had moved themselves to less congested channels and then a few week later they moved themselves again. The thing protects us on outbound traffic to malware sites. I am someone who always tinkers with my Apple, Linksys, asus.... routers over the years. It has taken me a few months but I don't have to fool with it anymore. The Luma's are doing a great job doing all the heavy lifting I used to do. (open dns, router configurations... no more.) Had a bunch of middle schoolers in the house and all of them were up and running and no complaints. I now trust the Luma's do the job.)
