parental controls with/without HomeCare?

I previously asked about the Archer C4000 vs AX3000, and Carl recommened for my current environment the C4000.  

 

I have a question about parental controls.  This is very important to our family.  On the C4000 web pages, it states:

*TP-Link HomeCareTM powered by Trend MicroTM (HomeCare) is included for 3 years from date of activation at no additional cost. Deactivation of HomeCare will disable certain parental controls and security protections

 

Through the emulator pages, I see parental controls under the HomeCare section on the Basic Setup tab.  On the Advanced Setup tab, Parental controls are separate, with no reference to HomeCare.  I have also looked at the documentation on how to set up the various profiles and controls, but there is not distinction that I saw for outside of HomeCare.

 

My questions are

- what parental controls are available without HomeCare?  

- what parental controls would be disabled after the free activation ends?  I don't anticipate wanting to pay for a basic service that should be built in to the router software, so what will no longer be functional?

 

Thank you,

-dma

The C4000 will have HomeCare for the life of the product so after three years you will not lose any features.

@Tony Thank you, Tony!  That's good to hear!  Would the same apply to the AX3000?

 

Thank you,

The model Archer AX3000 does not have HomeCare so it does not apply to that.

@Tony I just got AX3000 but I couldn't find Homecare feature. Does Ax3000 come with Homecare?

The model Archer AX3000 does not have HomeCare, but it does have parental controls, quality of service, firewall, access control, and IP & MAC binding.

 

The model Archer AX50 does have HomeCare.
