Setting up notifications for turning on/off a specific home network device

Q: Is it possible to receive notifications on my phone when a specific device is switched on and off to/from my Keenetic router's home network?

A: The Keenetic notification setting can be enabled in the Keenetic mobile app or the Keenetic Cloud web portal. Below we will look at these two methods in detail.

In the Keenetic app

Launch the app and select the required network from the Locations screen.
