Once the base has been plugged in to the router doe it have to stay wired to the router?

I only have so much room and limited number of outlets in the area that the router is set up. It would be nice if I could plug the bridge in to the network to configure and then more it to a different area to manage the lights.

    If you unplug the Bridge from your router, you will not be able to control the lights from the smartphone app. The bridge does not have built in WiFi, it uses the wired network connection. Therefore you would not be able to use Siri or any advanced features. Ideally you would want the bridge to have wired network at all times. There may be an exception if you use a Tap switch, it might be possible to use that offline.
