WiFi Scheduling

Follow

WiFi Scheduling allows you to set the times when each SSID will be enabled in your network. 

Typical use cases:

  • At your business, set your guest network to run only when your business is open and prevent passers-by from logging in
  • At home, turn off your kid's network to prevent late-night Internet use when they should be sleeping

When WiFi Scheduling is enabled, access points will enable or disable the SSID during the checkin process. The SSID is enabled or disabled during the first checkin after the specified time, typically within five or ten minutes. 

This feature is currently in beta. There are 2 known issues that will be resolved in future firmware updates:

  1. When an SSID that Bridge wired clients is set to is disabled, the wired clients will be disconnected.
  2. When all SSIDs are disabled simultaneously, auto channel cannot run. 

To enable WiFi Scheduling, login to CloudTrax and select the SSID you'd like to schedule under the Configure (Configure > SSID __) menu. Under Availability, set Schedule WiFi on. 

Next, select a predefined schedule or create your own for every day of the week. You can also start with a preset and adjust each slider to create a custom schedule.  

Note that WiFi Scheduling only disables SSIDs; it does not turn off the access point even if all SSIDs are disabled.

WiFi Scheduling is available on CloudTrax 4. If you haven't upgraded your network yet, learn how here.

    THANK YOU!!! Knew this was on the roadmap, and have been waiting patiently. Can't tell you what a huge boon this is for us (and our customers)! Kudos to the dev team for listening to customer feedback and implementing this!

    (Now, optional 2FA for admin portal logins is next, right? ?)

    Truly appreciate your effort to put in this most required feature. Can you please help enhance this by adding a option to choose an IP and/or MAC address in a given SSID for which the scheduling can be applied. In a real life scenario, we can't keep on adding new SSID's for each child (different age groups). Hoping this can add more value to the users.
