What is TP-Link HomeCare TM?
TP-Link HomeCare TM provides a kit of features to help you create a personalized, secure network for the whole family. Features include Antivirus, Parental Controls and QoS (quality of service).
Whether you want to block inappropriate content, set daily limits for the total time spent online, see which sites your kids are using or pause the internet, you can do it with parental controls, all from the convenience of an app.
Quality of Service
Choose devices or activities you want to prioritize on your network with Quality of Service (QoS). In just a few taps, you can make sure your laptop or movie stream is first in line for WiFi or Ethernet.
Every device accesses the internet through your router. That includes products that don’t normally have their own protection from cyber threats. HomeCare TM provides comprehensive antivirus protection for your router, keeping all your connected devices safe.
Sensitive information like bank details, medical records and passwords must be kept secure at all times. And with the increasing popularity of smart home devices, such as smart locks and IP cameras, effective network security is no longer something that’s optional.
Antivirus protects every device on your network. It provides malicious content filtering and intrusion prevention, as well as a quarantine for infected devices. An active database protects every connected device from external threats.
Malicious Site Blocking
Intrusion Prevention System
Infected Device Quarantine
When new malicious URLs go live, HomeCare TM blocks them within 15 minutes, protecting you and your family by automatically preventing access.
Intrusion prevention identifies and blocks potential threats and fixes vulnerabilities in the network. HomeCare TM protects your Wi-Fi devices from more than 100,000 new threats each day.
Infected devices detected on your network are automatically quarantined, keeping your personal information safe and preventing the spread of viruses to other devices.
Powerful Parental Controls
Simple, intuitive parental controls make it easy to keep your children safe while they’re online.
Included with HomeCare:
Easily create a profile for each family member and set custom time limits and online time allowances. Assign devices to profiles so rules extend to individual devices as well as family members.
Customizable Quality of Service
With QoS, you can assign bandwidth to the devices you use most, keeping them running their best. Simple controls let you prioritize bandwidth for streaming, gaming, surfing or video chatting.
Optimize your network by assigning priority for favorite activities like gaming, streaming, chatting and surfing—enjoy what you love without lag.
Choose which devices always have the fastest connections, or set a schedule to assign device priority for different times of the day.
