Model: Deco M5  
Hardware Version:
Firmware Version:

I read that the wifi scheduler isn't currently a feature and that it may roll out in the future.

 

I am also requesting that this become an option asap.  It seems most, if not all, of your competitors have this feature.  Any ETA?

@exchange240sx 

Thank you for all your feedback.
The feature request for Wi-Fi schedule has not been accepted yet.
Deco is mainly controlled by Deco APP and the smartphone needs to connect to connect to Wi-Fi for local control.
And the frequently used backhaul for Deco Mesh is 2.4ghz/5ghz wireless backhaul.
Once they are disabled by WiFi schedule, satellite Deco units would fail to maintain a connection with the main Deco, and is unable to be back online after the Wi-Fi schedule.

@Kevin_Z 

 

I want to buy 3x DECO M5. But I want the wifi scheduler function. I watch in the discussion that since 2017 this function has been promised, has it already been implemented in the latest firmware? If this feature is not available, I would rather buy a Netgear orbi that has a wifi scheduler. Thanx for answer.

@Currahee the promise is there for a long time. But it hasn't become a reality yet.

Ok, thanx. Netgear Orbi will be better choice.

Just installed the Deco M4 today and started to look directly for the scheduler, but couldn't find it to my amazement. 

 

 

@Kevin_Z  Great if this functionality could be setup. Implementation doesn't seem to be a lot of work and the functionality would be major win for the consumers and brand perception for TP Link (think of minimization of energy use and perceived safety).

 

 

 

Kind regards,

 

Pieter
