Hi guys,

 

Have just seen this setting but I dont understand what it actually controlls.

 

The setting text is :

You may select options to modify product WiFi behaviour.
Allow WiFi roaming when product is in standby
What does that mean when I put it on?
Are the devices also kind of WIfI repeaters?
Thanks in advance for your view.
Regards

This setting recently appeared on all devices with the latest software update and to be honest one can only guess what it made for as B&O rarely or never communicate on changes.

Maybe you can open a ticket with B&O asking about it?

Maybe this will shine some light:

I guess that it is for larger houses with multiple access point.

Just guessing.

Would be nice to get an official explanation for this.

I did read that too. 
My thoughts - when I read it, were - that it is a setting that lets the device/s keeps the connection to the wifi even when ‘asleep’/in Standby mode. 

Meaning making a faster connection possible, when you start using it.

Some times the app takes a while to recognize the devices (that are on wifi) - this could make this process faster.

However, maybe I also am only guessing.

This is good news for apartments in areas with Wi-Fi congestion, I gather.

So what you're suggesting is that it's not really the roaming part that is beneficial, but the fact that the B&O product stays connected to Wi-Fi even while in standby mode? This would make sense (assuming that without this feature enabled, it always needs to re-attach when it wakes up - not sure this has been 100% confirmed though...)

Mine don’t seem to disconnec from WiFi during standbyt, but one unit can get stuck on a more distant access point than the nearest and therefore suffer from poorer signal. This new function might mitigate this.
