    Hi Norman,

    Can you please provide a bit more information as to what you're trying to accomplish by doing this?

    The most common use of PoE on our devices is to power APs. Within the WatchGuard AP family, all of the models (new, and old) support turning on and off SSIDs on a set schedule.

    Including the why in feature requests helps me make them more compelling (and explain why an other solution, like SSID scheduling might not work.)

  • Hello,
    there are multiple reasons, but simply if you have a power soure it is good if u can turn it on/off, and even better if u can schedule it.

    in my case i have a poe 5G/LTE router without these features.
    to manage these actions from the firewall would be great.

    Hi @Norman
    I was able to match your request to an existing one, which is FBX-4083 -- if you'd like to follow that feature request, please create a support case and mention FBX-4083 somewhere in the case.
