    Antivirus license

    Hi all,
    if I buy a Deco kit or a single Deco unit, TP-Link gives me a 3 years built-in Antivirus. This is clear, but what if I add at later time (for ex. after 1 year) an additional Deco unit? Will the built-in Antivirus license renew? Or am I bound with the original one?

    Thanks

    Antivirus license is based on the main Deco.
    If you want to extend the license, you can reset those old Deco units and set the new Deco as main AP.
    And set others as RE to work together.

    So this means that with a kit with 3 Deco units I can reach 9 years of AV protection ... right? If so, this is just great!

    It's not like that.
    It will be activated once the decives get internet.
    Once the units get network, we can't get another 3 three years even we reset them.
    Only we get a new unit and set it as the main AP, we can get another 3 years license.

    Ohh, I see, now it makes sense

    I'm about to buy a new Deco M9 plus unit. I've an existing network of 3 Deco M5 units. The TP-Link official faq says to add first the new M9 Plus unit as a secondary unit to the existing network, and "after" upgrade this unit as the main Deco unit through the app.
    I want to know: if I proceed this way, will the Antivirus license renew? Or it's better to reset all the actual old M5 Deco units, and create the new network directly with the new Deco M9 Plus as main unit?

    Thanks
