A friend has the smartthings Wi-Fi mesh router with plume, WV525. He says if the Internet goes out, the Wi-Fi goes off as well.
Is that true? It’s not how most Wi-Fi routers work, you can still have a local Wi-Fi LAN operating even without an Internet connection.
I believe it if it’s true, but I’m just trying to confirm. he has Lutron Caseta switches and we were going to set up HomeKit as a local back up, but if the smartthings Wi-Fi mesh requires the Internet for Wi-Fi, that won’t work.
