Device Pairing
« on: June 03, 2020, 04:40:33 AM »
I recently installed a new Omni device and I am confused on why the app is telling me I need to pair the Omni with only some of the e-readers(Kindle and Barnes and Noble) in my network.  I am unable to tell what protection(if any) the Omni is giving me on my network.   Do I need to install the Avast AV software to get any protection?

Hi Douglas,
this might be a bug - the device is probably not correctly matched and that is the reason why you are asked for the installation of Omni app (Antivirus). For example, if you connect a new laptop to your network, you will be also asked for the installation of Omni app (antivirus). Omni gives you protection on the network level, protect all your IoT devices. I'm going to report it. Thanks, Zbynek
