What People are Saying About Torch

"For a couple of years I've been doing everything the hard way as far as online security for my kids. My existing router uses OpenDNS to block some content, but it's not really easy to configure. Torch has made life so much easier!

We also use internet access as something to be earned. Our kids need to do their homework and chores before getting access. On our existing router, we put the kids on the guest access and changed the password daily. Now we just pause each kid until they have earned the privilege for the day and then un-pause them.

One tip for new owners of the Torch is to read the setup FAQ first."

"It's great for my kids I don't have to worry anymore about "accendental sites" I also have my kids earn there Internet time now boy do chores get done faster :) mostly I am excited about the safety and it was so easy to hook up!"

"I've only had mine connected for 24 hours, but so far, so good. It was very easy to set up, and I've already felt like I've had more control over my kids screen time. I really like that I'm able to control what they are doing and pause it when needed."

"Works great. Some minor features are missing right out of the box (ability to rename SSID, VPN tunnel config, port forwarding, etc.) but those could easily be added in future software updates!"

"I think the router is excellent. The only thing lacking is advanced setup options for networking and extending."

"We were part of the Kickstarter -- so treat this as a very early review. The Torch has an easy interface, a nice set of "getting started" instructions, and the kind of bugs and limitations that a new piece of hardware tends to have.

For instance, you couldn't originally change the name of the WiFi network (fixed) and there was a problem with restarting with the same WiFi network -- I fixed it for me, and I think it's also fixed in the documentation for the Torch.

So: normal, understandable bugs that they're clearly working hard on. But the router is basically very usable. And the tech support was amazing. I don't usually get the personal cell number for a specific guy (I got Wayne.)

The flip side of "it's really easy to configure" is "there's some things it doesn't do." Since you can just tell each computer to connect to the router and it works (yay!), you can't easily block differently according to who is logged in (boo!). These are things they'll presumably address over time, but... There will always be some tradeoffs, and the Torch goes for "easy to configure" as a major priority. So if you want to do something really complicated, the Torch may not be your best choice (instead, your *best* choice is iptables or other fully programmable firewalls, but you knew that.)"

"So far, this product as a NEW product is great! As with any new product, there are still a few bugs and growing pains, but Torch really stepped up! The product is great, setup worked without anything but a little patience, and the performance has been flawless. I definitely recommend it to anyone with young children!"

"I'm able to control what my kids see on the computer, where they go on the internet and for how long"

Adrienne

"Easy to set up! We are strict about social media, so I like that in order for my daughter's friends to get on our wifi they will have their devices restricted also - leaving the girls with more quality time and less instagram scanning. We don't currently have any problems with usage, but I loved the conversation with my daughter during setup and having her agree that they were smart. Once my boys get online, it will be built into our family culture."

"So far, very easy to setup and use."

"Every parent should consider getting this router for their children's devices. The ability to turn the Internet off with the touch of a button is great, as is the ability to schedule bedtimes and have them stick."

Amy

"The router works well Thank G-d! You know about the issues....I couldn't tell what pages my kids were watching...Also what about apps...does it know what they are doing on Netflix? Overall I'm happy to be one of the first to get it. It's going to be great I can tell!"

"I have only just started using my Torch, but so far have found it to be fairly easy to use (I'm an IT Professional, but this would be easy to setup for the most inexperienced user)"

"Setup was super easy and the router reaches clear across my very large house. Was ready to go in under 5 mins!"

Madeline

"I've only had it a week and I would love to come back in a little bit and review it again but so far, so good. It was very easy to set up, very easy to add devices and very easy to control the whole house from my phone. Money money very well spent!!"
