Wired access point disable wifi from app
« on: February 26, 2016, 11:30:58 pm »
I have my almond 2015 wired to my almond, set as access point. I cannot disable wifi from phone app like I can on the almond+. I wanted to create another network for my kids that I can turn on and off from my phone. I need one always on network with one password, and another network with a different password that I can turn on and off. How do I disable wifi from the ios app on the almond 2015?

@ Dudeness30,

To our best knowledge, there is no option to turn wireless On/Off through app on Almond+ or Almond 2015. App is cloud specific and we would have almost same features for both the devices.

Would this work?

You have two Almonds already, so basically you drop another router between your Internet connection and the two almonds (essentially using the router as "Y" splitter). Set up the two Almonds with different SSIDs, passwords, broadcast channels, etc. The "splitter" router can probably be any consumer grade router with or without wifi, since you are using it as a switch of sorts and would need to turn off its wifi anyway.

I am not a networking expert, so I would see what the more experienced on this forum have to say about the idea. The Web apps for both should still work for a single cloud account in this config Ashok, no?

@Ashok
Maybe disable wifi is the wrong term. Under wireless setting on the app you can disable wireless networks. I use it often on the almond +, but it doesnt work on the almond 2015. See the app screenshots.

@ Dudeness30,

Got it. It does seem like on Almond 2015 the feature is available, but it is not working properly in Access point mode and hopefully, through our next firmware it would be taken care off.

Thanks. This is an important feature for me. I need an always on network and one for certain kids devices so it can be turned off during dinner time, or bed time, or homework, etc. I purchased the Almond 2015 just for this purpose.
