I have a Blue and now I'm trying to decide on whether to upgrade to a Blue+ or a Gold. One factor is if I can make use of the Gold's segmentation feature. I've read through the guides and in particular this https://help.firewalla.com/hc/en-us/articles/360050707534-Firewalla-Gold-Network-Segmentation-Use-Cases but it's not really helping me, largely because I don't know what to expect.
Right now I have a plain Blue plugged into a tp-link AX20 router, and this works well. If I upgrade to a Gold then I'd run the router in AP mode and plug it into the Gold. What is not clear is how the segmentation options work. As an example right now I have multiple CCTV cameras all connected by WIFI to the router and so I'd like to be able to segment them. Can the Gold create a network segment from a group of chosen devices? All of my home devices are connected to the home LAN by WIFI and so I'd need to be able add a device to a segment in the same way that I currently add a device to a rules group, so that a segment is a logical group rather than physical group of devices connected to a network port. For example I'd need to be able to de-quaratine a device to a specific network segment
PS it would be nice if there was a virtualised instance of the phone app available on the Firewalla site so that people could experience the app and see what options exist etc. Synology have one for DSM and tp-link have at least one for their routers :D
