disable local wifi radio at night

Hi All,
 
I have a fortiwifi 60d installed with a client and he is asking me whether I can disable the local wifi radio outside of office hours, so that all functionalities remain unchanged but only the wifi radio is disabled at night and during weekends.
 
Can this be arranged ?
 
Tks,
 
Kris.

Of course, it can be arranged by using ssid scheduling.
config wireless-controller vap
edit vap1
set schedule XXX
end
 
where XXX is a schedule name, which is created and modified as follows:
config firewall schedule recurring
edit XXX
(here you can set start time, end time and day, so ssid works only during this period)
end
 
For your requirement, just set schedule for each ssid on the local radio, so all ssids will be down
beyond the scheduled period(local radio is disabled)

ssid scheduling is only supported in FOS 5.4

Hi xwang_FTNT,
 
Thank you for your reply, I will certainly try this solution when 5.4 gets out of Beta.  Do you have an ETA ?
