The behavior of the product/network when using wireless schedules depends on the backhaul medium used to create the Mesh Network.

Wireless backhaul between the Beacons
When the root Beacon and the extender Beacons are using wireless backhaul and a wireless schedule is applied, the fronthaul and backhaul radios of the root Beacon will be down during the time set in the schedule and the LED of the extender will be red.

The fronthaul SSID (the SSID used to connect the end-devices) of the extender Beacons will be down because there is no wireless connection between the extender Beacons and the Root Beacon. In this case the fronthaul will not be radiated (as there is no active backhaul link).

Wired backhaul between the Beacons
When a wired backhaul between the Beacons is used, the behavior when wireless schedule is applied will be different than with a wireless backhaul.

Only the SSIDs (fronthaul and backhaul) of the root Beacon will be down.
All the SSIDs of the extender Beacons will be kept up and running.
