Yes the RBR keeps settings. Though wifi radio signals are not harmful to humans unless you have the RBR or RBS right next to you.

Re: Turn Off RBK20 during night

thanks for your answer, I read some scientific studies have found that continuous exposures 8h/day near device causes sleep disturbances and other problems for healt, so the wifi device will be installed 3 meters away from head, not in bedroom but in house corridor, separated with only plasterboard wall

Where were those "scientific studies"? That is an easy claim to throw around, but there are often about as reliable as the "scientific studies" quoted by the antivaxxers.

I'm italian, see attachment.

There are recommended exposure limits but what happens for exposures of lower intensity for times of 8h/day for 20 years? I've a 8 years old daughter and it's easy to understand the alarm bell...

Re: Turn Off RBK20 during night

I recommend you install the Orbi much farther away from peoples heads if your that concerned about wifi signals and health. Tyr 10 meters from normal positions from where people will be sitting for long periods of time. 

 

Also you can turn down the power output of Orbi wifi signals as well. 

Would be nice to have something in English. Not everyone knows Italian.
