The CommandIQ app is a simple way to manage your home network. The app allows you to view all the connected devices on your network, set up basic parental controls or a guest network, change your password and more.
Welcome to the future with Westman Enhanced Home Wi-Fi and the CommandIQ app! The Command IQ app allows you to manage your home or business Wi-Fi network from your mobile phone when you have a Westman GigaCentre router. It is simple to use and a convenient app that lets you take charge of your entire network.
Westman members subscribing to our Fibre To The Home (FTTH) Internet and Enhanced Home Wi-Fi services can use the Command IQ app to simplify their network with plenty of helpful tools.
In previous blogs, we have mentioned that the number of devices on your connection can slow your entire network down, but do you know the actual number of devices you have connected? One of CommandIQ's unique features allows you to see how many devices are connected to your network at any given time. The list of connected devices also enables you to see which devices are connected to 2.4GHz compared to the 5GHz frequency.
Note: Please wait at least 10 minutes after your GigaCentre router has been 'turned up' before attempting step 4.
4. Tap the QR code that appears within the app. (You will be asked to allow the app to access your camera.) Point your camera at the QR Code found on the bottom of your GigaCentre router, or on the sticker that came in your box. Select ‘OK’.
5. Name your network and create a password. The Router Name will be used throughout the app. The Network Name (SSID) is what you will use as your wireless connection name. Select a password for your wireless network. If you do not want to change it on all the devices in your home, use your existing wireless SSID and Password from your current router.
Dashboard: The dashboard gives you complete control over the devices in your home. It shows what you can do to personalize your network, including device lists, guest networks and parental controls.
Devices: Review all devices connected to your network, from phones and tablets to smart TVs.
Settings: Your main hub to personalizing the app just for you! Personalized Settings for command IQ include:
Setting guest networks ensures you keep your home network protected by setting up a separate network for home visitors. Features include enabling and disabling the network and setting/changing the password at your convenience.
The device list shows a list of the devices on the network. The app allows you to see the complete list and their details, including device name, signal strength, and more. Clicking on the device allows the subscriber to see even more details including, signal strength, IP address, model, vendor, and where the device is connected.
Control network access by device and user profile.
From the dashboard, you can select Network Map from the bottom-righthand side of the screen where you will get access to a page where you can view all connected units on your network.
Note: If you live in a Westman Fibre to the Home (FTTH) area, we’ve installed our GigaCentre router and you will have access to the CommandIQ app. If you do not, you'll use the Hitron App! Click here to see details.
