    You didn't say what your exact and detailed requirements are, i.e. what you mean by "actually works for a family".

    But well, I do not think that there is a "competitive product" for technology based on DNS.  Other Parental Controls use totally different technologies.  So one cannot compare.

    True, I didn't state the details, but there are 100s or 1,000's of other posts dating back years pointing out the same shortcomings (the monolithic approach: one policy for all days and all users) so it is clear that effective policy management is not coming. I'm surprised as OpenDNS has the scaffolding to make this work, it wouldn't be a significant investment, and would be a real differentiator. As it is, we are forced to abandon this and look to paid 3rd party products like Circle or Qustodio. I would prefer a single web based solution rather than more hardware and I would prefer to pay OpenDNS for a premium service.

    Now you said what you don't want, but missed to say what exactly you want... 
    Your messages are not a good base to create a plan for improvement.

    Try giving this a try for home use, I'm just swapping from ODNS to this as the kids grow up and have outgrown ODNS features
