Re: SENSE Feature Requests

Hmm, I got my Bosch washing machine working on Sense. Also Home Connect.

local DNS functionality

With the last Windows 10 update, Microsoft killed the HOMEGROUP feature. Since then, my hostnames on my home network are not resolved anymore. Since all my devices connect to SENSE, and it knows which device is connected on which LAN IP, perhaps it could provide a local DNS service for hostnames on the LAN?

Re: local DNS functionality

Umm sense or any other router always provides local dns?

And for the windows issue, check this article on how adapt to the new ms style https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4091368/windows-10-homegroup-removed

Re: local DNS functionality

I don't think this is a normal function of a router, but SENSE is also more than a router, as we are told.

 

That Microsoft article is only partially helpful, my use case is my Raspberry to which i connect via ssh from my Windows system. As long as I had HOMEGROUP, I could use commands like ping raspy, or ssh raspy. Now,   I must use the IP adress to connect.

 

I know, first world problems, and I am aware this is more a comfort feature than a necessity. But one can always ask - I have no idea how hard it would be to implement, or if anyone other than me would ever make use of a feature like this.

Re: local DNS functionality

DNS seems to be a simple service, but is't very hard to implement properly due to all the extensions made over all these years it existed... Pleas consult the DNS Camel:

Re: SENSE Feature Requests: Support for roaming protocols to create mesh wifi networks

Please add support for 802.11k, 802.11r, 802.11v protocols and apply WiFi Alliance Easy-Mesh, so we can add multiple WiFi Access-Points and build proper roaming WiFi networks

Re: SENSE Feature Requests


Thinking of buying a SENSE router but I miss some features that I find important.
Viruses do not only spread from the internet, some IOT devices are even shipped with malware. A scenario that would leave your other devices on LAN exploited with this router, right?
It would be nice to able to isolate for example IOT devices on a different subnet than your other devices such as PCs, storage aswell.
Maybe this is already in place? But I find it impossible to find a complete list of features or roadmap for this promising router.
Wishlist:
-IEEE 801.1Q (VLAN) on lan/wifi for segmentation
 or some other feature for microsegmentaion.
Nice to have:
-IEEE 802.3ad (LACP) Link aggregation

Thanks!

Re: SENSE Feature Requests

I suggest publish desktop Sense app on Mac AppStore and Windows Store. I also suggest publish Safari security extension for macOS on MAS, due new Safari version does not support dangerous extension from outside MAS. I also suggest translate Sense app for iOS to Polish language

Re: SENSE Feature Requests

Dear Sirs,

 

> I got my Bosch washing machine working on Sense.

 

I wonder if F-Secure Sense supports securing Tesla battery-electric automobiles, e.g. model 3 / S / X / Roadster / Semi?

 

(Note: Teslas receive frequent firmware updates through Wifi / 3G, including such critical areas as anti-skid braking control logic, so they should be well-protecte when connecting to the net.)

 

Thanks in advance, BR: Tamas Feher, Hungary.
