[APP][Pro] Netgear Router - Network control, Presence detection, Energy monitoring

But there is no condition? So what should this flow do? and there is a question mark in the first action, this should be a TAG.

Maybe if you tell us what you want to achieve, we can help you.

I have deleted the else-clause. Now everything is workig normal.
Thanks. Solution provided :slight_smile:
The else-clause has no use. I was testing en logging, so I did provide all exit-paths.


v3.2.5 is coming up:

  • Netgear package 4.3.3.
  • Fixed double flowcard naming issue.
  • App color changed.
  • German translation updated. (thx @fantross !)
  • German and Dutch readme added.

I was hoping that, next to my Netgear R7800 router, it was possible to control my WiFi extenders (EX6200) as well with this app, either as router or as attached device. My goal was just a simple restart. Unfortunately no. I believe I was able to access these extenders ik the (old) Genie app, but login on port 80 fails. Just a quick reply if anyone has an idea to send a remote command on the LAN to restart these extenders once a day?

What happens when you do a compatibility test from the app settings (using the ip of the extender)

Posted the test result on GitHub. Thx for your efforts!


Thanks for a very useful app!

However I cannot make the presence functionality work. I think it worked briefly after installing the app but not anymore. The app doesnā€™t register when connected devices comes online/offline. They just appear as online all the time. Other app functionality works fine (fx WOL)

I have tried restarting the router, restarting the app, removing and re-adding my connected devices.

Any suggestions how to fix this? THX!

What is the router poll interval? 1 minute is usually ok.
Did you pair the individual wifi devices to Homey as attached device? Check the advanced settings for timeout. If you e.g. set it at 5 minutes, the device should report as disconnected about 5-6 minutes after you turn off the wifi.

And did you take a look at the logs to see what is going on (in app settings) . If all fails please do a router compatibility check and create an app diagnostics report after that.

Hi Gruijter,

Thanks for a very quick reply!

  • Device was added as attached devices
  • Timeout is set to standard (180)

When taking a look at the log I do however, see a lot of errors. I presume they are lated to the issue, but I do not know what they mean?

If I look in the activity log under the attached device it says my iPhone was last connected two days ago, even though Iā€™ve been in and out of the home several times since.

That is not a normal error. Is your Homey operating ok? Are you on a stable firmware. Maybe you need to do a ptp.

there is something weird with the test. It runs most of the tests good. In fact it runs all the required tests needed for the Homey app. But the test is run on the router with IP, while the discovery finds two other IP addresses: and Did you add the correct IP address when pairing in Homey? I think you need with port 80.

I have in total 3 orbi devices: this is my main router
The other 2 devices ( & 101) are both satellites ( WiFi 6 mesh system)
When I press the discovery button the app finds

The router I added in Homey is the .1
On the same device I ran also the test.

Interesting. What happens when you go from a browser to: Router Login & Setup | NETGEAR
Can you post the result here?

And what If you go to http://routerlogin.net/

This app realy works well! Thanks Robin! Is it possible to find or store somewhere the data from the internet test? I would like to use it this way;

IF last test download speeld is lower then 50mb/s
AND phone xxx is offline
Then restart netgear router

Sure. It is available as flow token. See this example: Shared Flow | Homey

@Ian_Akkermans any feedback on this?

Hi Gruijter,
I have been a very satisfied user of your app for which I thank you. Recently I bought the Orbi RBK353 and am running into some problems. So the app detects the RBR350 and is able to show how many devices are connected. But when I add my phone as a separate device it doesnā€™t give me any parameters and most importantly it does not register if it is connected yes or no. I use it as an awareness signal to let my homey know if I am home or not. I have also have a RBK50 and that worked fineā€¦ Both routers are set in AP mode. Hope you have a suggestion how to make it work.


Just to clarifyā€¦ both routers are not active at the same time. The RBK353 (WIFI6) is a replacement for the RBK50 (WIFI5)

Nice you have good use for my app :blush:

To solve this issue start by doing a compatibility test from the app settings, and post the result on github as an issue (the copy button takes you to the right spot)

You need a free Github account for that.

Done! Itā€™s registered under fred737.
