However in those instances described above, I would be concerned with Internet access for those types of individuals if I were alowing such a thing.
I think I lost you or I don't understand what you mean.
So my teenagers/kids should not have internet access or local wifi? They are old enough and smart enough to eat up cell data if I block them from local wifi nor do I want to regularly block them from wifi or internet. My solution was a Vlan or guest network which works great for my kids and guests. I also could have enabled secure my vera, but that also has its own issues.
Lol...no didn't lose me..those are perfectly good options...when i say "allow such a thing" I'm implying that good security measures are the way to go in such an instance. Lol I never stated that one should just not allow internet access.
I haven't used UI7...and don't think I will anytime soon. Still has alot of bugs. So, do the older UI's, however I am perfectly happy with the UI5.
Aside from that even if you password protect the UI,encrypted or not its still included in the Query string and easily sniffed using for example Wireshark if the traffic is monitored from within your network..
