Internet outage alerts
I have a network whose Internet connection hails often (it is fed by fiver optic lines that blow down whenever we have a typhoon, which is not infrequent). I'd like some kind of alerting system from Eero whenever the Eero cloud loses touch with my network for more than, say, 15 minutes (just to avoid too many alerts for transient issues) so I can contact my network staff. Alerts could be via SMS (since we know the Eero cloud has that capability from the account setup process) or application notification.
As a proof of concept, though, and to test the level of nuisance alerting, I'd take an app notification every time the network goes down, even without the 15 minute wait.
Apologies for the typos above (hails vice fails, and fiver vice fiber).
I should add that this Internet outage notification feature might be ideal to throw in to the "Plus" product, since it appears you are thinking of things to add to it, and you have committed to more "Plus" features over time. Thanks for the consideration.
The other comments assume a device that can respond to an external service. eero already knows if you are connected or not, so it would be nice to get a push notification instead.
