How can I put a person or device in time out?
PlumeWiFi gives you the ability to freeze or pause internet access on a device instantly through the Time Out feature.
To instantly pause the access of devices to the internet for up to 30 minutes, use the Time Out feature:
- Navigate to the device or person you would like to timeout. Notice the pause button on the top of each screen
- Tapping the pause button once, will enable a timeout for 15 minutes. If enabled on a person, any device associated with the person is subject to the setting.
- Tapping the button a second time will extend the timeout to 30 minutes. A third tap will end the timeout
What you will see:
When a device is frozen, it will not be able to access content. If you try to load an HTTP site, you will be redirected to the captive portal screen. However, if it is an HTTPS site, the page will simply timeout or say it cannot be reached.
PlumeWiFi also gives you the ability to freeze or pause internet access on a device on a schedule through the custom freeze options.
