Setting timers for devises on Hub 3

Hi, I'd like to isolate devises and set timers for access to the internet for my children.  I've been able to do it quite easily on other hubs, but can't seem to work it out on Hub 3.  I've already identified and renamed all the connected devises, not just need to set the time limits.  Is this possible.  If so, how do I do it?

Re: Setting timers for devises on Hub 3

Have VM fixed the fact that the Hub 3 didn't have working device-time limits?  For years the functionality appeared to exist but didn't work.

Your best option is to buy a third party mesh system (eg the TP-Link Deco M4 that I use), and that not only improves wifi performance, but gives good parental controls that do work. 

Bear in mind that kids today can be very tech savvy, and if they want to use the internet, you need to ensure that aren't able to use hotspotting and mobile data when you're out of the room, or piggy back on your own or a neighbour's guest wifi.

Thank you.  This looks very similar to over providers Hubs.  I'll give it a go.
