Re: Smart Hub 2 access control management with MyBT app

Of course it will never prevent the sledgehammer approach but it does go some way to prevent more subtle approaches.

I believe the idea is to prevent unauthorised circumvention of the access control by those subject to it.

Oh, Like the Admin password you mean 😉

All BT have done is created a function you need to buy another device to control. Are they on a cut of Apple/Android profits per chance?

Err, no. They would need access to your BTID password and app login.

BTID and password needed for the BTApp I presume.  Not to access the router. (Admin password).  

No mobile devices so BTApp details are irrelevant.

It appears BT have created a function on router a you cant access unless you buy an Apple or Android device.   A big backhander was on offer no doubt.

Access control can now only be accessed using BTID and app password via a smart phone/tablet, router still needs admin password but access control is not available.

As previously stated, it is an attempt to make access control less easily circumvented. I guess you are the one household in the country that wants access control but doesn't have a smart phone.
