As the title says, its a new install. The home is already set up with a bunch of smart features.
I am having a very very hard time putting this into words, so bare with me.
Smart Tech in the house:
•Phillips Hue Lights and bridge
This is how my current Network looks:
I plan to turn off the Quantums Wifi, and use the Samsung Connects wifi only. When doing this, I will need to move all Smart devices over to the new Samsung Connect network/SSID. The reasoning for this is because my Quantum broadcasts 2 network IDs a 2.4 and a 5.0 but the Samsung Connect is smart enough to broadcast just a single SSID that holds both a 2.4 and a 5.0. Switching everything to the Samsung Connect network is just cleaner, 1 ID to rule them all!
—Fair warning, this is where it gets confusing—
My Quantum Router is on 1 side of the house, and I ran a cat 5 through the attic to the living room, to connect the Connect Pro to it directly. In addition to the living room being more central to broadcast Wifi, I also just need a LAN wire to my PS4. If you didn’t already know, the PS4 has a garbo wifi chip that cant get above 20/10.
My original plan was to go Lan from Quantum to Connect pro to PS4, then connect everything else Via Wifi to the Connect pro.
So my question is, is samsung connect pro smart enough to control the Philips hue bridge on the Quantum network, Or does it need to be hard wired to the Connect Pro.
