  • Reboot for all the Eeros and individual Eeros would be nice. Sleep mode for the Eeros too; I.e., when not used for a set period of time the Eeros go into sleep mode and wake up on demand.

  • Paired up Eero to Alexa using skills and code. It's enabled. No matter what command I try with Alexa (using your chart of commands) - it doesn't understand the word eero. Any ideas? (running 2.0.0 eero and 1.30 iOS app)

  • Disable and then re-enable the Eero skill. Try voice training Alexa by going to Settings>Voice Training in the Alexa app. Unplugging Alexa for 60 seconds may also help.

  • Hey  ravedog — Did taking the steps provided by Richard1864 resolve your issue? If not, could you provide us with a screenshot of what Alexa is identifying you as saying when you attempt to use the skillset?

  • Richard1864 sorry for the delay. I disabled the skill and set it up again and it works! Most of the channel Mande are geared towards profiles so I look forward to more commands to be added in the future (like speed testing or diagnostics). Thanks for the help!

  • ravedog I'm glad it worked for ya! It will be fun to see what else Eero will add to the Alexa skill for us!

  • I would agree with ravedog as it would be great to be able to say "Alexa, ask eero what is my current internet speed?"

      Skeeter I'm not sure I see the use in this as mine has NEVER been accurate.  I've had a gigabit ethernet connection for well over 6 months.  Speed testing from every site EXCEPT the eero app always garners upwards of 800.  On the eero app, never above 100.

      Cabbagetoe Well I wish I had that problem with 1GB internet but us folks in Upstate NY are stuck at 60 or 100mbs so the speed test works just fine! 😉

    If you open the Alexa app, could you share what Alexa is hearing you say instead of eero?

  • How about "tell eero to run speedtest"

  • Is this still the list of all that alexa/eero can do?  Would be useful to be able to get more information out of the system.

    • YetAnotherUserName Thanks for reaching out. Yes, this is still the current skillset. Are there any other specific skills you'd be looking for? Happy to pass that feedback along.

    • Jeff C. Alexa, ask eero how close I am to my monthly cap

  • If I tell eero to enable a paused profile have it tell me I need to use the app.

  • Detect when no one is home.  You could do this by registering family member phones into a group.  When no phone from that group is detected you could send a message to Alexa to run a specific Smart Home skill (Goodbye for example.)  Detect when someone returns and tell Alexa to run a specific Smart Home skill (IamBack for example.)

  • I second these ideas: speed test, monthly usage, enable/disable guest network.

    My own wish would be to be able to enable/disable UPnP. I would also like to be able to ask for current status (enabled/disabled) of guest network, and for UPnP which ports are open.
