Bit defender for Orbi and NAS

I’m wanted an antivirus at my router level. I have a NAS that I want to be protected as well. If I would get the bitfender armor, does it need to be downloaded on each device I want protected? I’m not sure I can download it on my NAS. Would thermostats and security cameras need protected? Thanks.

Good luck.

Re: Bit defender for Orbi and NAS

Hi @EricMatson, welcome to the community and thanks for your question! No, you don't need to have Bitdefender installed for your connected devices since the Armor feature is on the router itself. This allows your connected devices (smart home and non-smart home) to be protected as well. Here are some links you can check.
