Seen the documentation in their web site and it looks very interesting.

Thanks for recommending it.

In Amazon I've seen this in one review:

1. You can not access the logs of what is happening on your wi-fi network. You can not see if someone is trying to attack your system or if you have a misconfigured device causing issues. The logs can only be viewed by the development team of the company, and they refuse to decrypt it and send it back to the customer. They may answer some vague question, but I have been trying for over a month now to find out if my neighbor is still trying to hack my wi-fi with only "i'm sorry we can't give you that" as answers.
2. The application can reach the AP through your firewall without you being able to configure any additional security. That means your network is connected to their hub, which is outside of your control and collecting unknown data. So it could be collecting passwords or system information. With them hiding the logs, you can not know for sure.

The Amplify over allis a great device. The secrecy and resistance to allow access to the system logs, and the connection to their service without any way to opt out gives me great pause. I have had to make changes to my firewall to block the ports and traffic it sends across the net. This makes any updates almost impossible, but I really do not want my pictures and personal documents I access over the wi-fi leaking out because of their poor security and shady business model.


As you have one, do you agree that?
