Network Guardian … what is it for ?


Its main goal is to give its owner a better control on who’s really using his or her LAN. It scans your network and takes track of what devices if finds plugged to it (both by wire or wireless). Instead as all other network scanners do, it records the information and doesn’t delete them any more until you choose to purge your data.

You are able to change the name of each single device or assign an icon to it by changing its type just to better identify it whenever it’ll be caught alive again in the future, but, and above all, you’ll be able to tell whether that device is one of your known ones, then it’ll be recognized and accepted since then on, or you should be told when it’s turned on and off, or it’s an intruder and you want to be woken even while sleeping.

Another managed use is when you have said your child not use, say, the play-station to play with his/her friend on internet and he/her does it after having locked himself/herself behind the door of his/her room. You’ll be warned the way you teach the App to.

Finally, it could be kept running in the background while connected onto your home wireless just to be told whether a brand new device appears on your own network and simply you wouldn’t have ever known otherwise. You faithful watchdog could be running in your pocket or on your bedside table while charging overnight.

Wouldn’t you find it useful too? Let me know.
