    Wow., what will mean, EOL? What will happen with the device? No function anymore? Or now updates anymore?

    this will be very bad, because i'm using red and blue devices. If they'll stopp working, i'll need to throw them away, right? I'm not willing to buy devices which will have EOL with no function anymore in the future. If firewalla red and blue will be disabled, ofcoz i won't buy another firewalla anymore.

    I'll go to a system which won't use cloud based services, so i won't get ever in this situation.

    @firewlla team, is it true, that firewalla red and blue will be EOL and (i'm thinking) stopp working?

    I was always very happy to use this little, sweet and nice firewall, i was always telling people in my environment about this little box. But i'm afraid that i'll change my opinion about this little device, if it will really stopp working in the near future.

    right now i'm in holiday using VPN to my home to get the firewalla services. Really sad that i'll need to search a new solution for that.

    I saw they'd been discontinued on the product comparison page: https://help.firewalla.com/hc/en-us/articles/360010465893

    I'm not sure there's been an announcement though.  I have a blue though I've replaced it with a Purple since then.

    The EOL notice should be there for a while now. For both Red and Blue EOL were victims of the pandemic, one of the CPUs was discontinued, and the other cost more than the Purple if we built it (and we had to get it from a secondary market)

    Both boxes should continue to operate until June 2024, and after we will do our best to support them. (no significant app breakage)

    I have an old red from 2017, I want to swap out. Will the Gold SE go on sale during holidays? or the pre-sale price is the lowest?

    You must have the Kickstarter 2017 version. If you want a Gold SE, this is the best time (during pre-sale). We usually don't put units on sale, if we do, like just the lower end Purple SE
