SMART MESH NETWORKS

Mesh networks are becoming more common, which means you have a central router with Wireless Access Points (WAPs) around the home. Normally there are no issues, however on occasion it is required to deactivate all WAPs but the main router during the Pulse 2 pairing process.




For Mesh networks, you can often control the 2.4 GHz/5 GHz capabilities in the router app for your system. If that is your case, you could potentially disable access points if necessary. Ensure you find the manufactures instructions on how to do this, which will allow you to pair the hub. Then go ahead and return settings to normal after the Automate Pulse Hub is Paired.
