    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.

    This thread is a bit old; what has been done about the suggestions listed here? How can users enhance the skill on their own (diy)?
