    great news.

    is there a way to tag/group devices and rules for easier management?

    use case i had in mind: group IoT devices assign rule, group kids' devices assign another rule, group teenager devices' yet another rule, adults' devices more rules

    Hi Iev,

     

    It's not supported yet, but on our todo list. This is definitely a great feature to have.

     

    Thanks,

    Melvin

    1 year later. Is this a feature that is still coming? I was unaware that it was not available until after I received my box. I was kind of counting on it being able to manage device groups.

    +1 for this, I have been waiting for groups or tagging. I want to group all my IoT and block them from the Internet in bulk. When at home on my LAN I can control all my IoT and there is no reason for them to have access to the internet, typically automated lights etc. When I am away from home and want to control them, I can unblock the group in bulk, swith IoT devices on and then block them all again.

    This is a massive and very important feature.

    We're all nervous about IoT becoming part of a wholesale botnet and want to manage them tightly.

    The group's code is done, it will be available to the Gold first and then move to the red/blue.  Expect them during the summer.
