We've added a few routers with scheduling support. Now its easy to toggle between blocked/schedule/unrestricted modes across devices and people. The roadmap is to add all routers that support scheduling. We aim to have all routers that support Timed Access added asap.
Router Scheduler support for every router is our goal. Router scheduling deals with the timed blocking, so you dont even need to use the app to block devices. The goal is to allow you to pause/block internet on demand, and in addition have the backup of Timed Access where bedtime is automatic setup to block devices.
Kids complaining they need their iPad / Tablets for homework, ... App Blocker will restrict apps across your home network, such as Facebook, Snapchat, YouTube, ... To keep them focused and not distracted. Coming soon.
Guest network is ideal for getting your guests to join the network instead of your home network,. though managing the enabling / disabling of the guest network is not easy, we will be providing a guest network toggle switch.
If you're router is not on the supported list, the App will not work.
We've just developed a YouTube video on how you can help get your unsupported router added to WiFi blocker.
It takes around 1 week development time to add a new router model. We aim to increase the supported routers every month to cover the most popular routers.

Email us your router if its not on the list or send in your Fiddler recording of your router admin page which we will make available in the next which router we should add next.
