With the KidControl function from MikroTik, you can restrict your child’s internet use or, in an emergency, the digital version of the Room arrests to impose.

In order to be able to use KidControl, the WLAN routers from MikroTik and WinBox are primarily recommended. Three very suitable MikroTik routers are the RB962UIGS-5HACT2HNT , the RBCAP2ND and the CAP-AC for users who want to expand their existing Fritzbox.


The cAP ac is a very powerful wireless access point that looks good on both walls and ceilings. The concurrent dual-band radio supports dual-chain 2 GHz and 5 GHz 802.11ac as well as legacy standards and provides 360 degree coverage.


The hAP ac is MikroTik’s most universal WLAN device for your home or office. It is a dual-band device with gigabit ports that offer all the advantages of 802.11ac technology, but are still compatible with legacy devices.
The omni antennas make it possible to install the hAP ac in any possible position. The high-performance transmitter ensures sufficient coverage for all your mobile devices.


The cAP-2nD (ceiling access point) is the first 2.4 GHz dual-chain AP from MikroTik. With its unobtrusive design, it blends in with its surroundings, perfect for hospitality businesses such as hotels, airports, shopping malls, etc.
The CAP-2nD supports 802.11b / g / n and can be operated with PoE.

How the MikroTik KidControl works:

Set up your MikroTik WLAN router at home, for example with the QuickSet in the WinBox.
The KidControl can be set up with the MikroTik WinBox for mobile devices (Android / Apple) or the WinBox on the PC.
The WinBox on the PC is recommended for the basic setup, as you can usually work faster and more clearly here. Of course, this is left to your own taste or your preferred approach.

All desired time profiles can be created in the KidControl – for every weekday or even “switching operations” every minute – there is almost no limit.

Then assign the known devices.

From now on, Internet access for this device is only possible on the basis of the time profile.

With the mobile version of the WinBox, you can also conveniently cut and reopen the internet connection via your mobile phone in a matter of seconds.
You can also create dozens of different profiles for all kinds of devices.
