Users who participate in the Beta Program will receive the Beta Circle hardware and app. While many features are polished, we still have work to do on others, which is why your feedback during this testing period is critical to our success. Working with a broader batch of test users will help improve every aspect of the Circle experience.
Circle will not slow down your Wi-Fi. No Internet downstream data is filtered through the device so there’s no bottlenecking your Internet connection. Circle simply evaluates each request based on the user’s customized settings and then allows permitted traffic.
No, Circle pairs itself automatically and seamlessly to your existing Wi-Fi router. You won’t need to reconnect any device to Circle or your Wi-Fi.
Nope! Any device connected to your home Wi-Fi will be managed by Circle, all without ever having to configure or set up any software on those devices. The only software you need to download is the Circle app on your iPhone.
Circle will not require paid subscription for either the app, or to keep the database and features up to date.
No. We designed Circle with enterprising kids in mind. There's no off button, only a reset button that recycles within seconds. There's also an internal battery, so when Circle is unplugged it will remain on until the battery life runs out. In addition, when it is unplugged, you'll be notified immediately via the iOS app with subsequent alerts at 50% and 10% battery power left. (Not included in beta for support reasons.)
All computers, tablets, smartphones, TV streaming devices, and MP3 players...if it has a Wi-Fi connection, Circle works with it. There are devices like game consoles, smart TVs, and Blu-ray players that connect to the Internet but don't have traditional web browsers. For those devices, Circle manages the Internet connectivity, but not other functions. (i.e. Circle monitors the length of online gaming but not standalone play.)
We hope to have an Android app ready when we hit retail stores.
Circle will ship in the summer of 2015!
