Devices keep connected to one Wifi point

Hi

I have a mesh network consisting of one router and two points.

I have noticed that any device remains connected to one mesh node and it doesn’t connect to the closest mesh node. For example, if I’m in the basement and I’m connected to the basement mesh node, if I move to second floor, my device keeps connecting to the same node. The connection will show as week connection. If I disconnect the device and reconnect it, it connects to the closer node. Is this how the google mesh should work? I saw other mesh networks from other vendors where they claim that you get connected to the node with best connection as you move seamlessly.

See @MichaelP's replies in the topic below concerning the same question. It might be worth checking your physical setup to see if that could be contributing to this kind of behaviour.
