Frequently Asked Questions
Will Circle slowdown my Wi-Fi?
Circle connects wirelessly to your home Wi-Fi and should not cause any noticeable slowdown under normal use. Some “power” users of their home network, such as those who play online games which require more network resources, may use the ethernet cable that comes in the box to connect Circle directly to their Wi-Fi router to preserve their network’s performance.
Will I have to change any settings on the Wi-Fi devices in my home?
Because Circle is connected directly to your Wi-Fi router, it is automatically able to manage any device connected to your home network without any need to change the settings or install additional software on those devices.
Will Circle require a paid subscription?
The only cost for Circle is the one-time price for the device itself. There is no additional subscription fee to use Circle in your home.
What devices does Circle work with?
Circle is able to manage any device in your home that uses the home Wi-Fi to go online, whether it be iOS, Android, Microsoft, a smart home device, or anything else. Setup and management of Circle’s settings requires an iOS device running iOS 8 or later or Android device running Jelly Bean or later.
What ages is Circle designed for?
People of any age could find something useful in what Circle has to offer--content filtering, time management, insights, you name it. However, Circle is primarily built as a parenting tool for families with children in the 6-16 age range.
How much does it cost?
Circle costs $99, and there are no subscription costs for using Circle to manage your home network.
