Orbi and FEIT 2.4GHz IoT wi-fi bulbs

I'm trying to connect to my FEIT IoT wifi bulb using my iPhone.  FEIT requires connection over 2.4GHz but I'm unable to connect my iPhone to the 2.4GHz because i'm unable to find or set or configure a 2.4GHz SSID on my ORBI router.  Has anyone been able to setup FEIT wifi bulbs?

Re: Orbi and FEIT 2.4GHz IoT wi-fi bulbs

Ok after reading a lot I decided to try setting the power on the 5GHz for ORBI to 25%.  I then went to the ORBI admin website http://192.168.1.1 and viewd the devices - found my iPhone and saw it was connected on 2.4GHz vs 5GHz.  This allowed me to configure the FEIT electric 2.4GHz wifi bulbs.  After I was done setting up all the blubs I put the 5GHz back to full power 100%.

Re: Orbi and FEIT 2.4GHz IoT wi-fi bulbs

The Orbi combines the 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz into 1 SSID. The orbi automatically handles which radio devices get connected to based on the device design and support. Orbi doesn't support separating SSIDs between the radios.

How does one set the power on the 5ghz for orbi to 25% to achive these results enabling me to use the FGEIT 2.4GHz Wifi Bulbs?
