Thank you for coming back.

I do not know too much about coding and I do believe everything is possible.

The future is always uncertain. 


Firstly, Deco is mainly controlled by Deco APP and the smartphone needs to connect to connect to its Wi-Fi for local control.
And the frequently used backhaul for Deco Mesh is also 2.4ghz/5ghz wireless backhaul. Once the wireless backhaul is scheduled to be disabled, satellite Deco units have no access to regain a connection from the main Deco after the schedule, and would stay offline, which would bring more inconvenience.

Mesh routers are quite different from standard routers. 



  While I appreciate you showing us a human side behind the screen; one thing that bugs me; is their reasoning. If an entire mesh system loses power and therefore loses Wifi - they are able to connect to each other again without any configuration again once they receive power again. How is not similar? Go ahead and remove the power to your mesh or just the ethernet cables and plug them back in, do they not connect to the mesh again?

Also you state mesh routers aren't the same as standard routers...Here is a mesh router that offers the ability to turn wifi off at night

Tell your enginners to step their game up

Even though I think the reason they want to turn the wifi off at night is silly, to say the least...
