A nice feature of the Kibosh appliance is the ability to schedule the wireless network to shut off at night. This solves two potential issues:
- A quick and easy to way to prevent unauthorized use of the Internet after pre-determined times.
- Stops unnecessary exposure to wireless radiation, if that’s a concern for you.
How to schedule WiFi access:
- When connected locally log into the Kibosh appliance at http://192.168.10.1
- Go to System > WiFi Schedule
You can schedule daily, or weekly, and in 15 minute increments.
In this example, WiFi goes down at 1:00 AM, and comes back on at 6:00 AM.
Note: even if you only turn the WiFi off 3 hours each night, that’s over 1k hours less, each year, of WiFi exposure.
