Parental Control - WiFi Schedule

1. Use the ‘Services’ Tab and select ‘WiFi Schedule’

2. Under ‘Global Settings’ you’ll want to begin by making sure that the ‘Enable WiFi Schedule’ check box is checked.

3. As you scroll down you’ll see two schedule examples. Take note that each schedule can be enabled separately. You can configure your schedule rules by day and local time.

*Your Router's Local Time by default is based on UTC, but it's a good idea to double check. To see what your routers local time is click on the “Status' dropdown menu and select “Overview”. On the page that comes up, look for where it says Local Time. All times are in 24:00 format.

4. One other thing to pay attention to is the ‘force disabling wifi even if stations associated.’ make sure this is checked if you want a hard cut off at the time you specify. Having it checked will kick any connected device off and make sure that your internet access is cut off at the time designated.

5. There is an ‘add’ button at the bottom of the page for you to create another schedule if additional ones are needed.

6. Always click ‘Save and Apply’ when you are finished making your changes.

Additional Reading:

You as an admin are also unable to use the WiFi when it has been disabled. This means any changes to the Anonabox configurations will need to be made via an Ethernet LAN connection.

Similarly, you will not be able to access the internet in general without that wired connection. If a wired connection for internet access isn’t desirable, consider adding an additional access point with a separate router, or a second Anonabox.

It’s important to understand a bit about how the schedule is being run in the background. When the time and day coincide with a scheduled rule it will run a script that enables or disables the wifi. This script ONLY runs at the specified times.

You have manual activate and disable buttons at the top of the page. This will run the command manually and can be applied anytime.
