Can’t use violet with fing box? Why?

Recommended Posts

Just bought two fing boxes to test at our homes so we can test domotz pro, and be able to pause our kids internet with fingbox. 

 

So... what’s the reason we can’t use violet with fing box?

 

the end user needs to be able to restart outlets on a PDU. They also need a dumbed down interface with less devices in their face. Fing doesn’t do this. You can’t restart a wattbox from fing.

One of the main reason why Violet cannot be enabled on the Fingbox is specifically for the Pause Internet functionality: as a matter of fact, this feature is available both on Fing App and Violet and they can interfere each other if running on the same physical device..

 

In case of Fingbox, the end-customer App is provided by Fing itself, and if you don't need to provide your end-customer with PDU functionality, that is sufficient.

 

If on the other hand you need your end-customer to reboot devices through PDU outlets, and at the same time give your end-customer the capability of Pausing internet through Violet, the only option is to choose a Domotz Box. 

 

The Domotz Box is also the only solution if you want to provide your end customer with a customize App (which goes with the logo of your company and contact details).

This is the only hardware you sell? 

The domotz box you speak of is made by others right?

 

so I’ll need to return these and buy new more expensive boxes?

 

im still not even sold on the usefulness of domotz compared to just using the unifi portal and ovrc portal. I need to test more. Guess i need to return these and buy new boxes just to continue testing.

We actually produce also the Domotz Box, which is re-branded by different partners as well. Please do not hesitate to contact directly our Support for additional information or options to purchase the hardware
