Meet Circle at home

The best solution to monitor and manage your kids Internet usage at home

We have 4 kids and there’s not a day that goes by without a debate on the pros and cons of “monitoring” and “managing” their Internet usage.

We have not had a television for years, but the older two have phones and every one of us has our own notebook. The notebooks were for essays, homework and the like, but I know everyone of us watches some videosĀ and my son is hooked on Minecraft and my daughter on Youtube.

So, when my friend Sachin, recommended Meet Circle I went over to see a demo video and ordered one in a minute.

It is a small device, that connects to your WiFi device and monitors and enforces policies for Internet usage for all devices.

I ordered it on Monday, it costs $106 with taxes and I received it today.

It took me 4 minutes to setup. I had to connect the device to the Power Outlet, then download the app.

After dual authentication using my phone, the app “identified” devices connected to the WiFi router and I was able to set policies on YouTube, Facebook, SnapChat, Instagram, Twitter, MineCraft, etc.

Absolutely wonderful, simple to use and I’d highly recommend it.

In fact the best part is I have setup policies for myself as well. I wont be on the Internet between 10 pm and 430 am.

It is pretty secure, in fact and I tried to hack my way around it multiple times and failed.

Buy one now if you have kids.

  1. Interesting… I was thinking of setting up a proxy at home as well… it was only a matter of time… will try this for sure. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I also had a similar thought of using a Raspberry Pi to have a single device with a mobile or a web-based localhost interface to reset the permissions of every device connecting to the router in the house. May be will try that one out now. Now that I know it is taken so important by folks like you… thanks again.
