The FamilyHub is a WiFi hotspot that protects the family, allows you to limit their activity on social media, games and websites - in real time.

Watch internet activity in real time across every device in the house.
Whether its a phone, tablet or computer, every device in the house can be monitored in real-time from your private dashboard. Worried that the family are spending too much time on social media? You can see what is happening in real time using the Live View feature, plus you'll get charts showing you how many times a website or app has been used over any given time period.

Because protection is provided by the router itself, there's no software to install and it can't be disabled or bypassed by tech savvy kids. Just connect to the FamilyHub WiFi and you're protected.
The FamilyHub protects your computers and devices by preventing malware and viruses from coming into and getting out of your home by using a continually updated list of known malicious destinations.
The FamilyHub might be perfect for little surfers, but not exactly ideal for the parents. Which is why the FamilyHub has its own WiFi signal - leaving the parent's WiFi untouched.
Connect a single Ethernet cable from your B9 WiFi hotspot into a spare socket on the back of your broadband router and connect the power cord.
You'll see the FamilyHub WiFi in your list of WiFi networks. Connect the children's gadgets and any other devices to this new hotspot.
Rest safe in the knowledge that the FamilyHub is protecting your devices. Within minutes you'll be able to log into your dashboard and review the activity.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does it replace my existing router?
No - it works along side your existing WiFi router that was provided by your Internet company. The FamilyHub connects easily with an Ethernet cable (supplied) to the back of your WiFi router meaning you can then connect devices to the FamilyHub that you want protecting and anything else stays on your existing WiFi.
What sort of WiFi router is it?
For the technically minded, it's a 300Mbps WiFi router with 5Dbi antennas. This means the speed of the WiFi is fast and the signal will provide excellent coverage.
Does it work with my BT SmartHub 6, HomeHub, Virgin SuperHub?
Yes, it will work with any existing router. We will provide you with an Ethernet cable and a quickstart guide that shows you how to connect the FamilyHub. You will need one spare socket on the back of your existing router to plug the FamilyHub into - you normally have four to choose from and they are coloured yellow. The FamilyHub plugs into any one of those, it doesn't matter which.
Is there a limit to the number of devices I can connect?
No, but in practice no more than 20 devices should be connected for the best performance. This should be more than ample for the average family/smart home.
Can I connect devices such as game consoles, Xbox, Playstation, Nintendo etc?
Yes, any device that connects to the FamilyHub WiFi can be protected - it can also protected wired devices by connecting them to the back of the three spare sockets on the FamilyHub.
Do I have to install any software or apps on my devices?
No, there is no software or app installation required. It works at the FamilyHub level, and it's the FamilyHub that is doing all the hard work filtering and blocking. This means you can have protection on devices that normally can't be protected, such as games consoles, smart appliances, WiFi printers and suchlike.
How is it priced?
The price includes protection for a whole year - after which the service will renew. You do not have to pay per device or for additional devices, just connect them to the FamilyHub and you're done.
