Dowse – a smart digital network appliance for home based local area networks (LAN) and also small and medium business offices, that makes it possible to connect objects and people in a friendly, conscious and responsible manner.
Dowse is a software designed by dyne.org to build into a small inexpensive computer.
It can be a board such as a Raspberry Pi, an OlinuXino, or just any computer you have standing around.
It allows you to see what kind of events are happening on your network in real-time. Dowse shades your DNS traffic to your Internet Service Provider. Dowse becomes the digital equivalent of a door and a curtain.
Dowse is free and open source software. There is no big company behind it. By installing the Dowse box you will get insight down to the network layer of what is actually going on in your home. Who is talking to whom, what, where and when? You can see which device connects to which company and you can turn that communication off, or allow it.
