These have dropped in price, now that the new "Nighthawk" range is out.
Appears to be a price match with the eBuyer group.

Rated "Best Value" on C-Net.......

Thanks
these work with BT home hub ?
My experience is of the more capable RBK53 Orbi system, but I have to say I've been very pleased with the coverage and speed consistency of that.

The interface is via app, though, and it's very 'My First Wifi' with not a lot of customisation, or at least not easily (it didn't even have local whitelisting until fairly recently). As a 'plug in and forget' system though it works very well indeed.
Does anyone know if any of these ~£100-£150 (Deco S4, etc) Mesh systems have DNS logging for parental control? Kids are getting older, so would be useful to ensure they aren't ending up on the wrong sites.

I don't want to use very restrictive parental controls, I want to give them some freedom, its part of growing up and learning lessons. But just in case they inadvertently make a very wrong turn, I'd like to keep an eye on their browsing so I can intervene.

Hmmm first Amazon review:

Warning! You need to pay £5p.m. for Parental Controls

Description mentions:
  • Parental controls: Pause device internet access, view site history usage, and filter websites for free. Set online time limits, schedule device internet access and more on Circle Premium (1st month free trial)
  • Advanced cyber threat protection: NETGEAR Armor (powered by BitDefender) is network wide anti virus, anti malware, fraud/phishing/ransomware security on an unlimited of devices for a 30 day free trial

Does that mean parental controls are part of BiDefender/Circle Premium sub services?

No use to me if so

I had the previous version which gave me loads of trouble, the satellite kept disconnecting which required a hard reset and some devices just would connect until I hacked it to show separate bands for 5&2gz but then you get other problems because of doing that. When it was working it had amazing speed and coverage but because of the issues I returned it
@Mentos I do have Netgear R7000, and yes parent control became a payed feature a few firmwares ago.

Thanks, that’s disappointing.
