A device search box that works by name, IP, or MAC Address
I would love to see a searchbox in the eero app that you can enter a device name, IP Address, or MAC Address and it would find any matching devices.
I have many VMs and smart home devices, so I have a very large number of devices and I am frequently trying to find the device within the eero app to rename it properly within the eero app as well as add it to a particular profile. In some cases I may have an IP or MAC Address from somewhere and I want to find the matching device in the eero app to cross reference what it is or to block it on the network even if it has already been properly named and added to a profile, which I might not be aware of where to look for it specifically.
I created a reddit post about this with a poll that has many votes in favor here: https://www.reddit.com/r/eero/comments/l42mom/add_device_search_by_mac_address_and_ip_address/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x&context=3
There are also a few feature requests that I think are strongly related to this one:
This is absolutely necessary. We need the ability to search devices by IP/MAC. Not as concerned about 'device name', but this would be handy as well
Being able to search by IP address is important as the number of Eero devices and especially the number of devices (think IP6) increases. I have 4 Eero devices and 7 to 12 devices on each already attached. When I get a message about a new connection or problem with only the IP as the identifier it is considerable work finding information about that device. The Eero system has a great deal of information, it's just not easily usable the way it works now.
Why is this not a feature already? Being able to search by MAC address is essential to know what is on your network.
