Remove the ability to add HomeKit devices in Eero app

Like many people, I already had HomeKit devices installed in my home and added Eero to upgrade my WiFi network. It is not clear what the workflow should be to enable Eero HomeKit support. Best I can tell, you just enable it and Eero discovers all the HomeKit hubs. That's perfect. Problem is that the app implies you need to additionally add all the HomeKit devices you already have installed. Don't think that is the case but not clear at all from your app or documentation.

For people who have no HomeKit devices they aren't about to go to the Eero app to add new HomeKit devices (except the Eero devices themselves). They will read the manufacturer documentation and use the Apple Home app (or manufacturer app itself).

Why bother having functionality in the Eero app that Apple already has in the Home app? More work for Eero and very confusing for your customers.
