Matches what their rep told me a few weeks ago.  Looking forward to all their updates as this is a phenomenal product and the more I use it the more I like it.

Glad your liking it. I am kind of in a love/hate relationship with XG right now just wish it had better support for none Windows OS such as Android devices, Even thought I told you how to get around all the problems with streaming and such I hate the fact that we have to bypass these devices in order to get things like streaming Netflix working. I am looking forward to that big update due out in beta in April, I will deff install it and see whats changed. In the meantime I have some Luma's on pre-order and cant wait to try them out, If Luma works better in a home environment then XG and gives me good Virus/Malware protection then I may shutdown XG in favor of less stress.

Understand. I am sticking with it as just works for me. If it ever becomes an issue I will go with something like the circle for the tablets and phones and keep Sophos for the rest.

I'm about to implement Circle now due to a specific need with our children. Am not relying on Sophos UTM to solve it.

What happend to Luma? It has Circle like features. What happened with your children?? I ordered Luma for this very same reason for my daughter.

So I ordered a Luma 3-pack last night and applied for the Beta program today. They've not selected participants yet. Fingers crossed.

 

Nothing catastrophic. Just trying to govern our 6 yr old son's iPad usage. There are worse apps than Minecraft; it actually requires creativity. Also an excuse to try out Disney Circle. Wish there was a way to implement usage limits for apps that don't use Internet as well.

I understand totally what your saying here. For me I think Sophos maybe to good for a home environment or lack of home user support with devices like Android/iOS/Gaming Consoles, Even though I got everything working I am getting worn out every time I turn around the Wife/Kids come running to me saying something is blocked and they cant do something, I feel Luma may have a nice balance or at least I am hopping that will give me a good balance of security and ease of use for home use and not try and block every darn thing known to man kind. Netflix/Gaming consoles need to work out of the box and Luma needs to offer great protection from Viruses/Malware and cover the house with good WiFi and I will be sold. Its been fun trying Sophos/Untangle/PFsence but I am now looking for something easy to use with great protection and something my wife or 23/34 year old kid can manage and use.

Let me know how that works out. I have been known to change gears.

That's awesome, Welcome to the party! Now all we have to do is get 'HSS Dave' to join us in this exciting event :) Dave there is still time to pre-order the 3 pack for 249.99 :rolleyes: Hay you may even get the the beta unit of Luma before Eero shows up https://getluma.com/?utm_source=adwords&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=Brand-Exact-Geo-US-GP&utm_term=luma_wifi&gclid=Cj0KEQiArou2BRDcoN_c6NDI3oMBEiQANeix5kgjEf1_OkdSIlP8GMHMBBAAhYp317jAukuRc-t2KnYaAh3Y8P8HAQ
