Parental Timer Control

I'll be straight forward here.

Eero, you are launching the Eero 6 products in a few weeks. My intention is to purchase the 6 Pro units for my house, and part of the reason for the purchase is the built in parental controls. Unfortunately, after researching online, it has become clear that there is no way to allocate "time" to a user (child) so that when for example 90 minutes are used, the user is done for the day. 

I cannot express how useful this enhancement would be for managing a child's screen time. 

Can you confirm if you are working on this enhancement for the parental controls in your products? Do you intend to roll out this feature?

Please don't make me buy a competitor's products...

  • Eero shouldn’t be in the parental controls business. They should be in the mesh network business and they should be the best at that vertical. If you want a product built for parents, consider adding a Circle to your Eero network which adds timers, filters, rewards, etc...

  • Why “shouldn’t Eero be in the parental control business?”  This is such a key control for parents to have that emanates from the connectivity provided by the Eero.  .  I see that the community has been asking for it for YEARS!!!  Why hasn’t it been implemented?  While it’s nice to be able to limit use between x and y hours, if a kid can use it for 14 of those hours, that control is useless.  As many, many other parents have asked, can you please add a time limit that the parent can set, such as 90 mins per day?
