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 realtime. Dowse shades your
to your Internet Service
Provider. It's the digital equivalent of a door and a curtain.
Then it allows to recognise every appliance you have in your home - and give it a name and an ON/OFF
button. If something does not seem right you can switch off-line a device or all the Internet connections, while you eventually investigate or ask for help.
Dowse is also implementing a simple way to sanitize your traffic by being able to detect most malware and
spyware sites and make it visible: then is up for you to see who you trust.
