Fingbox | Indiegogo
One of my favorite network scanning tools on iOS is Fing. Today they enter the world of hardware as they blow past their Indiegogo goal by 326%. Fing has developed a simple device aimed to secure and troubleshoot your home network. The idea is it would be able to sense anything out of the ordinary and report back. Such things as new devices on your network changes in your internet performance, or simply find out who’s home.
This is a great idea if the price is right. Most (being overly generous) upper-end routers have similar features, hover Fing always did a clean nice job. I’m excited and interested in getting my hands on one to test. But as all things crowdsourced we never know when that is until it’s out. Fing is shooting for a June 2017 launch.
