Save to power off APs every night?

Hi everyone,

I have some APs which are in areas where during the night no one is present. Does it harm the hardware if I switch them off every night (powering off the PoE port) and powering them on again in the morning or would it be better to let them just run?

Thanks!

Hello da_anton,

No, the nightly power off won't damage the APs (hardware) in the long run.

Hello,

Hope you are doing well!

You can schedule a WLAN broadcasting time on all WLANs so that the WLAN will stop broadcasting accordingly.

I believe you are using the SmartZone controller to manage APs. Please confirm.

Hi Vignesh,

Hope you are doing well too!

Thanks for you fast reply. It's an unleashed setup. I'd like to save power (e.g. my R650 use ~8W constantly). So I'd like to prefer a complete power off via my switch.
