Are you familiar with TP-Link's UI for these access points?

I would like to set up a schedule to (for example) turn off the AP's radio from 9pm to 7am. The interface is a tad un-obvious. It seems easy enough to enable the scheduler, create and modify a profile, associate it to the desired SSID, and define it as a "Radio OFF" event (see image below), however:

I can't enter (for example) a start time of 21:00 and an end time of 07:00. The interface gives an error, telling me that the end time must be greater than the start time. In the image, you can see that I can set up a "Radio ON" schedule from 7am to 9pm. The radio's initial condition is the ON state, of course, so I'm not sure this will work - guess I can find out soon!

Does the scheduler only associate and run one profile? For example if I create two "Radio OFF" events to satisfy the UI's requirement
that (end time > start time), I could create one from 9pm to midnight (23:59) and one from midnight to 07:00. (I don't like the one-minute gap, but...)

Or does this work 'the other way?' Can I disable the radio on the "Wireless Settings" page and set a "Radio ON" event from 07:00 to 21:00? Does the scheduler override the radio checkbox setting on "Wireless Settings" page?

Thanks for the insight.

In case it's helpful, firmware version is shown here...

Did a test, of course. It appears that, if you create a "Radio ON" event in the scheduler, the radio turns OFF when the event time window expires, so doing this is as simple as entering the ON event- no OFF event needed.
