Connected Home Monitor is a new feature included in ESET Smart Security Premium and ESET Internet Security. This feature was introduced as Home Network Protection in version 10.
This diagnostic tool provides information about the security of your router. It also displays a list of devices connected to your network. It may be necessary to consult support resources for your router or contact your internet service provider to resolve certain issues within your home network if you lease or own a device they provided.
For more information about Connected Home Monitor, see our Online Help topic.

The yellow star icon indicates devices that are new to the network or that have been detected by ESET for the first time.
The yellow caution icon indicates that your router may contain vulnerabilities. Click the icon in your product for more detailed information about the issue.
The red warning icon indicates devices that your router contains vulnerabilities and may be infected. Click the icon in your product for more detailed information about the issue.
The blue icon may appear when your ESET product has additional information for your router but does not require your immediate attention because there are no security risks present. Click the icon in your product for more detailed information.
If your device is not showing up in the list of connected devices, check to be sure your devices are turned on. A device may not show up if it does not respond to the way ESET is searching the network. The device mapping by ESET Connected Home Monitor is dependent on the way your network is set up. For example, your router may have the ability to host more than one logical network.
