Router and technology
F-Secure SENSE contains a lot of groundbreaking technology to protect your connected home from threats. In this page we take a deeper look at the router itself, as well as some of the tech inside it.
The SENSE router is designed to be both convenient and effective
- Get a stronger Wi-Fi signal with SENSE's upright design and powerful 4× internal antenna
- Choose between 2.4GHz (longer reach) or 5GHz (faster speed) frequencies
- Stay informed on the security of your home using the SENSE app

What makes the SENSE router special?
Here are just some of its unique features
Device discovery detects what kind of device is being connected to the SENSE network. This allows SENSE to adapt to its security needs, as different types of connected devices require different types of protection. For example, threats affecting your home PC are going to be very different from those affecting your smart thermostat.
IoT security detects when something unusual is happening with smart devices, sensing their traffic to provide extra protection against IoT threats. This way SENSE can protect devices with no available security software.
Always up-to-date, secure router
Vulnerabilities in the software of traditional routers can expose your connected home to online threats. Forget clumsily updating your router using a confusing web interface or USB sticks, because the SENSE router regularly and automatically updates its software in a secure manner.
Our industry-leading Security Cloud communicates with the router
The F-Secure security cloud is a modular online service used by your SENSE router to protect you, with features like:
File scanning services help lightweight client products analyze objects like apps or files for viruses without being burdensome on your device
Reputation services analyze reputation of computer networks and objects like URLs for safe surfing
Artificial Intelligence examines the file's metadata and analysis results, and either performs further analysis steps, or classifies the object as either clean or malicious
Privacy principles ensure we collect only data needed for your protection, while we respect your privacy
