Turn Off Internet/Network with Push Button Security Lock Switch



Just push a button to turn-on or turn-off your Internet/network connection for one computer or group of computers, using the Internet Network Security Lock Switch. This is a simple way to safeguard your data/connectivity from hackers and other wayfarers even if you/your kids forget to turn off the Internet.

This is required if you have always-on computers and you want to easily turn on/off internet connectivity by just pushing a button. This can also be used to block or enable Internet access to one or a group of computers — without user’s knowledge, if required — without having to use firewall/proxy server, etc.
