Thanks Martin.
I love the video on this new product, https://youtu.be/1UJFnSlC9WY
Is Avast OMNI the new name (replacement) for Avast Smart Home Security?
I am certainly interested in testing and promoting this new Avast security enhancement.

Very interesting. Excellent approach. :)

Hi PAID,

I'm afraid that we don't yet have any plans to provide devices to Avast partners.

Understood BWhit and thank you for your honest reply, I'm looking forward to getting Avast Omni soon and is a great idea to protect the whole family.

Look like good, but I work remotely and often need to connect to a working VPN. Will Avast Omni work in RSA-1024 networks?

Hi George,

Avast Omni will not cause any compatibility issues which might prevent you from connecting to a VPN. However, Avast Omni will not "work" with RSA-1024 networks in the sense that it will not be able to scan your encrypted communications with the RSA-1024 network.
