RBR50v2 Feature Request

Actually two feature requests-

 

1) It would be incredibly useful to be able to group devices. Devices should be allowed in more than one group. This would allow better access control in the home. For example:

Dad

   dadphone

   dadtablet

   dadlaptop

Mom

   momphone

   momtablet

   momlaptop

Kid

   kidphone

   kidtablet

   kiddesktop

   kidtv

phones

   dadphone

   momphone

   kidphone

computers

   dadlaptop

   momlaptop

   kiddesktop

TV

   LRtv

   DadMomtv

   kidtv

Amaxon

   EchoOne

   EchoTwo

   ShowOne

   WorkshopLights (Outlet)

 

You get the idea. And be able to turn access off/on by group. Of course going to individual equipment settings to enable after a group setting would override.

 

Feature 2 (and I have seen this before) is individual item (and since there would be no more overhead involved, lets go ahead and throw in groups) traffic monitoring by day (maybe even break this down to hourly), week, billing period (settable). This would enable us to monitor and limit traffic consumers.

 

And lets just throw this in while we are at it - traffic limits - by device/group settable for day, week, billing period. For example, kidone only gets 10G/day max and then all their stuff stops on wifi. 

 

What the heck. Make this an add on software package and I would pay (a reasonable) amount extra for it.

Done - With probably the same effect as spray painting on an interstate overpass
