We've been using this in our home for around 3 years. It's not perfect, but it does get the job done. We have no subscription fees. We just give our kids a timer for how long they can be online. And we can shut the internet off (so to speak) when we need to. It also can help filter what kids see on the internet...using this with OpenDNS has helped keep porn and other garbage away from our screens. I paid $100 several years ago and we totally got our money out of it.

What's the difference between this and going to 192.168.something.something and changing settings there?

One comment on these, it can wreak havoc on your Voice Over IP and wireless TV receivers if you're not careful. When I first started using Disney Circle it caused frequent outages with my AT&T U-verse VOIP and wireless TV receivers. The VOIP was impacted so significantly that it was unusable until I disabled Circle. Its something I'm sure can be corrected but for me this just didn't give me enough detail into what my kids were actually doing or what sites they were visiting to be of any value. Although it was fun to hit "Pause" occasionally and watch the family freak out when the wifi "died".

No use for grown up kids, can be easily bypassed.

Put Disney in charge of what my kids see? Oh heck no. Disney is the only channel I ever blocked when my kids were growing up. Their ethics and their use of both blatant and subliminal sexual messages is disgusting. Seriously folks--don't trust your kids to Disney. Walt was awesome. What it's become since he passed away is just plain evil. Search your soul--you know down in there somewhere you know what I'm talking about.

It looks like you need a paid subscription to do just about anything useful with this device. Functionality that used to be free now require a subscription.
​Hmmm...we're using it for free - all the functions. Are you sure you read it right? Sorry, don't mean to be rude.

I have a router with this built in. For any of the app functionality we have to pay $4.99 a month. We can still do all the functions by logging into the router from a PC connected to the network but in order to use the app on our smartphones it is 499 a month

No idea how well this is, so I'm not specifically talking about the product and completely understand why some may want this. However most wireless routers have these options in their settings. You can also use something like PiHole to easily block sites you want your kids to stay away from.

Is OpenDNS not sufficient?

Its free to use, but will only protect your kids when they are on your WIFI. The paid subscription works when they are on mobile or on other networks. We have this one and it works great and is easy to use.
