HELP! I have a bunch of smart home devices. We just moved and I went all in on wyze everything (thermostats x3, cameras x alot, home security monitoring, mesh router pro x4, outdoor and indoor smart plugs). I use Google Home to control everything (may switch to Home Assistant at some point)
I am now adding smart blinds to the home. I purchased Allesin Smart Blinds after significant research into cost and ease of integration to Google Home. The Wifi Bridge requires a 2.4 Ghz connection. The bridge uses the Tuya app (I think you technically can also use the smartlife app). From what I can find online, this needs a dedicated 2.4Ghz SSID to connect the smart bridge to the app.
I have tried turning off the 5Ghz for the 20 min pause and then trying to connect and that doesn’t work. My old router would allow me to have a separate SSID dedicated to 2.4Ghz. Does the Mesh Router Pro have this feature? I cannot find it if so. Is there any workaround or solution?
I have an old Google wifi point that I was going to set up that I could dedicate to 2.4ghz but when I try and connect and set up that up alongside the mesh router pro, I think the mesh router pro is blocking it. Plus it is not ideal to have a second wifi setup.
I’m at a loss for how to make this work, and I can’t return the stupid blinds (in hindsight I would have just bought a more expensive, better brand).
Thanks for the help!
