RBRE960 loT displaying under Wi-Fi connections

My installer said the the SSID ORBI14-IoT would disappear a few hours after install of the system. It’s been 24hrs and still is listed under my wifi choices. What is this and should it be listed? My main Wi-Fi is ORBI14.

The User Manual on page 64 describes how the Internet of Things (IoT) WiFi SSID can be controlled by the user.

Nothing is going to happen "automatically".  You, as the owner, can use the Orbi admin interface to control the router.

The IoT SSID always broadcast unless it's disabled by you.
