@Hubcap123.-_ 

Update:

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.

@Hubcap123.-_ You could get a smart light switch to automatically cut power from the Deco at night? (Unsure how you'd get it to resume power though, since it needs wifi for that)

Maybe do something with a raspberry pi and a relay if you're technically inclined?

Please do your customers a huge favor and implement it. Can't the team see it's the number one feature being asked since more than a year?

Any update? Just need option to turn off wifi in schedule mode, per deco. When connecting decos in AP mode, why is it hard to do?

@Hubcap123.-_ Hi All and TP-Link, 

 

I have just bought the Deco M9 and seen that the turning WiFi off at night is a much requested feature since 2017 at least. It was slated as being developed and that it would be out in a future firmware once tested. 

Is it possible that someone from Tp-Link could please advise if this is near completion? I am new to TP-Link and have been impressed by their support to date. However seeing that there are multiple threads requesting this since at least 4 years am slightly disappointed that there are no other updates regarding being abe to schedule turning off and on the WIFI signal during sleep. A key feature in my opinion especially in 2021!! Would lik eto know in case its not likely to be due as would source a system that is while i can still return the TP link. Love it for everything else.

 

Hope to hear back from someone who knows at Tp-Link Development team. 

Thanks

Hi! Agree with above and I think a night sleep feature for the Deco system would be a great development. Any updates from Tp-Link?

@andersbrunn wish I read about this while I was in my return period. 4 years in development and still waiting.

An update from someone at tp-link would be good.

it has been requested multiple times over the years and you promised it will be delivered in the next update multiple multiple times. Instead of playing hide and seek have the decency to accept the fact your customer service is a joke and at least apologise for keeping us hanging all these years. WE HAVE BEEN REQUESTING THIS SINCE 2018 IN VARIOUS POSTS. STOP PLAYING WITH US AND COME STRAIGHT, GIVE US AN ANSWER, IS IT COMING OR NOT AND WHEN?
