Wi-Fi Schedule has been a popular request for Deco products and on ECO Mode 1.0, the first Edition of WiFi Schedule has been added to several models already. With the further intention to optimize the Wi-Fi Schedule and support this feature across more models, we are keen to know more about why you think Wi-Fi Schedule is essential, and your expectations for how this feature is to be implemented.

 

Morever, many users probably have learned that, most Mesh products remain a few hidden wireless signals for Backhaul only between Mesh APs. Disabling the wireless Backhaul signals would cut off the internal commutation between Mesh network, causing the disconnection of Mesh APs. The common design for Wi-Fi Schedule is to allow scheduling Wi-Fi networks while maintaining the wireless Mesh Backhaul signals. So far The final decision on whether to disable the wireless Mesh Backhaul under Wi-Fi Schedule is still pending. We would appreciate hearing your thoughts on whether you prefer to disable the Wireless Backhaul or not.

  @David-TP The option could be available when using a wired connection between Deco's

Shutting down WiFi in childrens rooms at night would be appreciated. I have my to BE65 connected with LAN cable.

  @David-TP for me WiFi scheduling would be exclusively for managing my daughter's internet access but she's only 2 so that's not an issue for a few years yet! I need my IoT and Main network 24/7 for heating and smart home controls.

 

I did want to ask though, is there hardware limit on the number of SSIDs the Decos can broadcast? If it was possible to have Main, IOT, Guest and a separate Child SSID you could set up a schedule for the Child SSID (or whichever SSIDs you want to limit) and bypass the issue of cutting off everyone's internet access in order to limit the Child's access. They can have their own SSID and password so they never know the main one and it also eliminates the issue of random IP and MAC addresses that most phones use these days which bypass/confuse a lot of parental controls on routers.

  @Wrayman 

Hi, I think there should be a limit on the number of broadcasting SSIDs. Currently, the SSIDs on the same frequency (2.4Ghz or 5Ghz) are operating on the same wireless channels, too many SSIDs in one channel would cause wireless interference.

 

I'm unsure if there will be a dedicated Child SSID, but when I launched the survey, I was told under the WiFi Schedule, there will be separate on/off switches for the Main/IOT/Guest network. In this way, Main/IOT SSIDs could be left 24/7 and the Guest SSID could be temporarily considered as a "Child SSID" and scheduled on/off in specific hours.

 

Thank you very much and best regards.
