LED options

Optionally, the status LEDs on FortiAP can be kept dark. This is useful in dormitories, classrooms, hotels, medical clinics, and hospitals where lights can distract or annoy occupants.

On FortiGate, the LED state is controlled in the FortiAP Profile. By default the LEDs are enabled. The setting is CLI-only. For example, to disable the LEDs on FortiAP-221C units controlled by the FAP221C-default profile, enter:

config wireless-controller wtp-profile

edit FAP221C-default

set led-state disable

end

 

You can override the FortiAP Profile LED state setting on an individual FortiAP using the CLI. For example, to make sure the LEDs are disabled on one specific unit, enter:

config wireless-controller wtp

edit FAP221C3X14019926

set override-led-state enable

set led-state disable

end

 

The LED state is also controllable from the FortiAP unit itself. By default, the FortiAP follows the FortiAP Profile setting.

LED schedules

Use the command below (led-schedule) to assign recurring firewall schedules for illuminating LEDs on the FortiAP. This entry is only available when led-state is enabled, at which point LEDs will be visible when at least one of the schedules is valid.

Separate multiple schedule names with a space, as configured under config firewall schedule group and config firewall schedule recurring.

Syntax

config wireless-controller wtp-profile

edit {name}

set led-state {enable | disable}

set led-schedules <name>

next

end
