Armor availability on RBK85(2/3)



Could you please give an update when Armor will be available on the RBK853? This product is currently one of the high-end products in the Orbi range and is missing this one.


I switched from the older model to the new one but found out that this integration was missing. Please put this high on the priority list to implement and if possible please share any timeline.


Thank you;

Re: Armor availability on RBK85(2/3)

Please post about this in the Armor app forum:
NG doesn't give out dates or post timeframes when new features are forth coming. You'll need to keep an eye on the release notes as new FW comes out. It took NG a while to integrate Armor and Circle into Orbi AC after it first came out. I would expect the same to happen for Orbi AX. 

Good Luck.

My Setup (Cable 900Mbps/50Mbps)>CM1100>Orbi RBK50 v2.5.1.16 and Orbi RBK853 v3.2.11.2(AP Mode)
Additional NG HW: C7800/CM1100/CM1200, Orbi CBK40, Orbi RBK852, R7800, R7960P, EX7500/EX7700, XR450 and WNHDE111

I totally agree they need and should have included security features such as bitdefender armor with those new high expensive routers. Specially if you paid for security on you're pervious router or modem. It should have been one of the main things included when the new Orbi and nighthawk ax devices came out
