    What happens when a device (computer, mobile or tablet) is already preset with a DNS server (i.e google DNS 8.8.8.8) ?

    Is the "Family Protect" feature intercept the DNS query from the device  to redirect it to "opendns.com" DNS ?

    Firewalla will intercept and redirect the DNS request.  (Firewalla is a inline device)

    How can I control what is available via opendns?  I may want tighter controls or exceptions.

    If you need higher control, use the rules to control access. https://help.firewalla.com/hc/en-us/articles/360008521833-Manage-Rules

    Can you still modify your settings in your own openDNS Dashboard or will Firewalla manage it and you have no control ?

    There is no control over the family mode part. 

    If you want to make your own family mode, you can use a combination of porn block, safe search ... to do the same

    If you want better control just use the native firewalla features 

    1. Porn block

    2. Safe Search

    3. Then you can use the allow rules to manage exceptions.

    (Not sure if this is what you are after)
