I am wondering if there is a way to switch a group over to VPN during a specific day(s)/time(s).
This would be for my kids, who I have in a group called 'Kids Devices'. Currently, this group is currently connected to VPN in my Firewalla Gold, via ExpressVPN, 24/7.
Since they are distance learning, I was thinking what if I took them off of VPN during school hours (but if Firewalla Gold in router mode could do this even better) so this way they can enjoy the full bandwidth of our internet (better streaming quality for their Zoom sessions). With VPN on they only get about half of what the max speed is for ExpressVPN.
Then when they are off school hours, then it would be cool if Firewalla could then shift from one group, then it would move their devices/group back to VPN. This way they would have protection from their non-distance learning apps and games during off hours and faster streaming during school hours.
So I'd like it to be something like this:
- 'Kids Devices' - Off VPN from 8AM-2PM
- 'Kids Devices' - On VPN from 2PM-8AM
Do you think this is something Firewalla can do? Maybe it is and I just don't know how to do it. I am on Firewalla version 1.971 Beta Release.
