Hi,
I would like to schedule the wifi to be turned off at night to prevent it from sending radio emission, and also to save some power a bit.
I can do this using Fritz!Box. But, I haven't found an option to do this on NWA1123-ACv2.
I'm thinking of going back to Fritz!box if this is not possible with this Zyxel device.

    Welcome to Zyxel Forum. The good new is, NWA1123-ACv2 supports the function you asked for, which is called "Schedule SSID". It allows users to configure the time/period where wireless services/radio to be propagated out.

    If your SSID is in standalone mode, the setting page is under directory: Configuration > Object > AP Profile > SSID , Just select your using SSID and then click "Edit", then you'll see "Schedule SSID" in the bottom of pop-up window.



    If your NWA1123-ACv2 is in cloud mode (managed by NCC), the setting page is under directory: AccessPoint > Configure > SSID Availability. Just simply select your SSID, and then enable the feature below, so you can set the schedule for your AP.

    The radio will be turned off when there's no SSID broadcasting.
