I have a NETGEAR Nighthawk AC1750 router. I was thinking of getting the smarthing connect home. I have over 26 devices using the WiFi. My question is could I use the smarthings connect home as a secondary router to relieve some of the traffic on my main WiFi by connecting the slower devices to the connect home and keeping everything else on my main Netgear Night hawk (different WiFI Channels)? If ,so could I do this by simply connecting the Samsung connect directly to my Nighthawk router the same as if it were a regular hub or would I need a switch or something? I am aware that at the least the system would treat it as two different WiFi networks and that would affect streaming to devices on different networks.
Another question can I use presence detection by what devices (like someone’s phone) connects to the samsung connect home like some brands of routers can?
Third Question will having two Samsung connect home devices as a mesh network increase the reliability of my zwave and zigbee networks by having two or more main access points. I have over 50 zwave devices but since my Samsung hub is on one side of my house sometimes a device goes down and blacks out a whole room or more.
