Same query here, just for fun as I know that we have deer, wild-boars, badgers, 
stoats and weasels, squirrels, and many more around ... 


WIFI here is « extended » thanks to our Devolo thing. But I’d be so curious to 
know who our visitors are, and when.


Of course, our cats DO know, but won’t tell us … can you trust cats ...
