Model Number: Z1-WATCHDOG-941

Description Technical Specs
The Z1 WatchDog is a Wifi Router specifically designed to filter the internet for any home or small business.

Large corporations spend thousands of dollars every year on equipment and personnel to limit their network access to websites and content that only they approve. The average home and small business owner don't have those same resources available to them, so finding something to help limit your internet connection from pornography, and other dark places on the internet is too daunting for most.

With the Z1-WatchDog, problem solved!

First, the Z1-WatchDog is designed for the simplest of home users. It is plug and play and browse, that's it. There are plenty of other more technical and complicated family routers that you can set up profiles for each person, download apps to control access, etc. If you are an advanced user, and want that type of experience, we recommend Home Halo or Circle from Disney or others. They are much more complicated in their setup, and offer many more features.

However, if you just want a simple router you can plug into your current Cable or DSL internet modem, and know that your kids won't be able to pull up images and videos you don't approve of, the Z1-Watchdog is for you.

From the product innovator, "Being a network engineer, I had friends and family continually asking me to help them setup network controls in their own home so their young children and teens couldn't access pornography. I tried many of the 'clean family routers' that are on the market, and liked some better than others; but one thing was consistent among all of them; they were very complicated in their setup, and too overwhelming for someone not familiar with network engineering. Therefore, I created the Z1-WatchDog with my 70 year old mother in mind. I wanted something so simple, even a basic user can plug it into their current internet modem, and not worry if they set it up right, and if it is working to limit content."

Most family routers will limit content by using DNS controls. That will prevent MOST of the pornography websites, but it leaves HUGE holes that any teenager knows about. For example, you can setup OpenDNS on your standard home router, and it will prevent you from connecting to a website like However, if you do a simple google image search for any vulgar term, you will be presented with a plethora of pictures far worse than anything presented at Playboy.

The Z1-WatchDog goes much further. It will block pornography using DNS controls, but will also force safesearch on Google Images and Youtube. It also limits proxy/anonymizer connetions and VPN's, another very common way used to bypass network filters. Lastly, it doesn't allow any peer to peer (P2P) and bit torrent traffic, one of the most common ways used to exchange child pornography.
