Easiest WiFi I've ever dealt with
While its the most unconventional WiFi hardware I've ever used its been amazingly easy to use and its the first stuff to ever properly cover my parents entire house basement to second floor. Device hand off between nodes is smooth and almost entirely hiccup free while live streaming! A feat i could only dream of on the old setup. I run an ethernet back bone for the thing, so in network traffics amazingly fast. Though my parents paltry 32mbps download speed is less than desired, QoS on these actually works well and everyone get a slice when needed instead of whoever's downloading a game. The app for managements surprisingly robust enough for whats needed to satisfy myself, but simple enough I'm not scared of letting my mom have access to it. I think this is the first WiFi hardware in my parents place i can confidently say is invisible, it "just works". Which is incredibly comforting as i cant be their IT gal all the time anymore.
Great app just needs a feature or two.
The feature I would like to see is “reboot all” button for all the decos on your network simultaneously. Right now, I have to reboot one, then wait until it comes back up so the app lets me do something then do the same for the rest of them one by one. This is just a lot of waiting around. It would be so much easier if I can reboot all with just a one click.
Also, it would be nice to have a “scheduled reboot” feature where I can set the schedule and the decos can reboot automatically at a time when no one is going to be using the Internet such as at night when everyone has gone to bed. This would prevent a lot of connectivity issues and also might help apply automatic updates where the decos need to be rebooted anyways.
Maybe the software can check if the decos have this schedule setup, then the decos can automatically update themselves during this time and they can even reboot themselves if necessary all without my intervention or any user downtime since the reboot will happen at night because it was scheduled for a time when no one should be using the Internet anyways.
This is probably not possible but if the decos could be scheduled to be down for a certain period time like late at night (this could be user configurable), It would help the longevity of the hardware because they do run hot.
Device mgmt and parental controls are useless
I am upgrading review to 3 stars. While still not a “real time” experience, I have found it takes my network about 12 - 24 hours to reflect new devices appropriately in the app for me to manage / assign parental controls. This isn’t ideal but I’m not exactly running a sophisticated enterprise so it’s good enough.
Also it’s worth mentioning the complaints of others about their coverage dropping for no reason have not at all been the case for me. Coverage is solid across all of my three floors, and good enough for my ring devices on the brick exterior of my home.
So the hardware aspect of the P9 deco works fine. But this app is pretty much useless once you get past the initial setup of your network. As devices are added, you’ll get notified they’ve joined but you can’t actually see them on your device list. So the parental controls and administrative features are basically useless cause you can’t tag or assign profiles. I’m surprised by all the positive reviews. Have tried both iPad version and iPhone version.
After speaking with technical support they told me to delete the whole set up and start over. Seriously that was their answer. And no it didn’t help one bit. App is just straight up faulty. At least the mesh is good. The app however... it’s terrible. Had I known it was this bad I might have gone another route.
Developer Response ,
Sorry to hear that. Regarding your case, please make your client devices obtain an IP address from Deco automatically. Power off the remote Deco units and keep the main Deco powered on only, then check if your devices will appear in the client list.
If the issue persists, please feel free to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and our senior engineer will handle your case and give you a solution.
