I'm hoping someone can give me a quick answer on these questions - I'm considering a purchase tonight.
Does the Velop system support setting specific time limits / network pause for specific devices? In other words, can I specify that two specific devices shouldn't have network access during a specified, recurring time?
Assuming yes, what's the specificity of time limits? Can I specify that access stops at 10:15 or 10:30 or can you only specify whole hours such as 9:00, 10:00?
Does the time limit system work well and reliably?
Thanks very much in advance!

Never mind. It's clear that time-based controls are very broken, that the issue has been known about for months, and that no firmware fix has been provided.
Going to go with another vendor.

The Velop System supports specific time limits for its blocking schedule. You can also block specific devices connected on the network. The system should work well given that it's running on the latest firmware.

Hello there, rgtwng.
Allow us to get a better picture of your setback. What troubleshooting steps have you done so far? Since you've mentioned that the Parental Controls worked before, mind telling us what happened prior to the turnaround?

I am on firmware 184.108.40.206316.
Parental control wasn't working before I went to that firmware. After I flashed, it started working for a while. I just started to notice that my kids are able to get online past the cutoff time I designated in the parental control settings.
I just checked and both devices are configured for time based internet access control. The slider shows "on."
For some reason, they are able to access the internet past the cutoff.
I turned the slider back and then on. I restarted the 3 node system. Same issue...

Try to disable IPv6 on your router's setup page and check if it'll make any progress. Also, are you accessing the Parental Control feature of your device via the app?

I am new to the Velop system and have a 2 node setup. I am on firmware version 220.127.116.11316 and facing the same issue as rgtwng. I have tried setting up specific time intervals and also block always options. But the device is able is still able to connect and browse the internet. I have tried setting up the Parental Control both using the browser and also using the iPhone App with similar results.
I see recommendations to disable IPv6 but am not able to find where the option is located in the UI. Can you please help?

...best option would be to login to your Velop System with your prefered browser (from a PC or Mac) and follow the steps:
...hope this helps!...
