Control of this platform comes completely from the app. We are using it with our iPhone 7 Plus. To get started, you will want to plug in your first device alone and go through the next few steps using Bluetooth on your phone to set up the app. Once the first unit is complete, the app allows you to set up additional units one by one.
Diving into the dashboard, you get a quick overview of how many devices are on the system and your latest WAN upload and download speed. At the top, you can see all the Deco units in your Mesh network.
The settings menu gives you access to Wi-Fi and parental control along with the built-in anti-virus and QoS.
The AntiVirus platform is a partnership with TrendMicro. It includes a malicious content filter, intrusion, and quarantine systems.
Parental controls are among the easiest to setup. You simply name it, choose a filter level, and apply time controls if needed.
QoS allows you to choose what is most important to you and the Deco will adjust bandwidth accordingly.
Advanced controls include IPv4 and IPv6 controls along with the ability to control the small LED on the top of each unit. You can adjust notifications here too.
Control for notifications is limited to devices connecting to your network, firmware updates and reports and the end of each month.
