WLANs with the same SSID?

I have some Reolink E1 Zoom and E1 Outdoor which both shoult have dual band WLAN (2,4 and 5 GHz). I have three access points and modems with the same SSID even on 2,4 and 5 Ghz.
Do the Reolink cams change the conection from 2,4 to 5 GHz an vice versa or do the cams cange to another device mit the same SSID?
Do you want to change the router to connect the camera? If the SSID and password are the same, the camera will reconnect the Wifi with the same SSID and password.

Mine seems a little unpredictable after the power recycles. Otherwise it stays on the network I made it connect to. One time after a power failure at the location it's at, it connected to the 5Ghz when I had set it up to connect to the 2.4Ghz. It wouldn't have done that if I wouldn't have entered the 5Ghz password at an earlier time to check it out. I wanted it to stay on 2.4 because the signal was stronger. You'll probably have to reset the network settings in the camera settings to get rid of the old networks and passwords saved in it. The last time there was a power failure, the camera lost connection and I had to drive to the location and turn off a circuit breaker to recycle the camera power because it's 20ft. up on a pole. There wasn't a problem with the router or repeater because I only recycled the camera to get my wifi connection back. It definitely needs a firmware update to fix the connection problem after a power outage or recycle. I never dare recycle it intentionally from home because I might end up having to drive a couple miles to reset the camera.
