Review from Dan Mornis
Useful and simple Great product is easy to use and very powerful for home IT.
I use FING at my office where I must keep up with everything is connected to our network. Being able to label what is what and add icons for quick reference is great! Also, I have a smart home with 3 teenagers. At home the kids keep giving out our WiFi PW and using the FING allows me to see when something new is added. FING is simple, useful, easy to setup and get much needed info. Planning on getting 2 FING Boxes once released. Keep adding features, very, very pleased.
Works quite well, but I have issues. No. 1: I have an Wifi extender and Fing often fails to see devices on the 'other' side of the extended Wifi network. Maybe a timeout issue? Would be nice if there would be a setting to change more details of the device search. No. 2: I have several IoT devices (based on ESP8266 modules) that announce their services over Bonjour/NSD/mDNS. But Fing sometimes doesn't show the services and never shows the that describes the service. Why?
This app is awesome and is my go-to utility when scanning the networks I set up for myself and others. I do wish that there was an option to hide the fingbox tab since I am not interested in buying one atm.
Can't separate out different vlans. Seems to think that all my wifi networks are one, despite different ssids all devices get lumped in the one list despite different ssid and ip ranges being used.
Great tool for monitoring the network but the software has a few rough edges. The setup just needs to flow a little more smoothly.
Fantastic app, all around. I have had no issues to report. Been using for 2 years now.
Lots of updates for this release:
- Enables "Internet Security" checks in Fingbox
- A new Fingbox dashboard directly access User details and data
- Fixed quite a few bugs
