Ability to assign a device to a certain eero in your house!

I get it. In a perfect world we wouldn't need this. Now with the "smart home" we have a lot of devices they stay in one place and doesn't move around. We should be able to tell the eero, "Hey make sure my RING doorbell connects to my hallway beacon, NOT the office" I think that could be done in the IP RESERVATION area. My house has 3 eeros and MOST times my RING does connect to my hallway beacon but they are MANY times where it winds up connected to my office eero which is pretty far away and the video wont load because its too far. I'm sure other people would like this feature too!

    Don't worry you and many others deal with this issue... What makes it worse is it gives up on 5ghz because it's trying so hard to connect to a 2.4ghz on the other side of the house.  I have a TV within a foot of an eero and it's connecting to the eero on another floor at 2.4ghz.  I also have some devices connecting to the basement eero because the eero two floors up nearby is just not the best option ... It's sad..

    Agree.  Really need to be able to assign specific devices (my front door camera) to a specific Eero Pro access point so it quits jumping around from AP to AP and disconnecting in the process.  Would assigning a static IP to the device (camera) help this, or not so much?  need help!

    This has been asked for so many times and is a much needed feature. There does not seem to be any logic at all as to which Eero a device connects to. Like everyone else, I have devices attaching to an Eero 100ft away when the device is sitting right next to another Eero about 5 ft away. I'm sure it is impacting download speeds (security cams). Eero...... PLEASE add this much requested feature! Could be implemented so that if allocated Eero becomes unavailable the device drops down to any available Eero.
