Import custom device names from the amazon Alexa app

I have a lot of smart home devices and Alex devices that I went through the time in the Alexa app to name each device.  I just upgraded to the Amazon eero 6+ and was sad to see that the custom names where not ported over and had to spend time looking up each Mac address to rename them in the eero app.  Also it would be nice to set which eero access point you want the you want the devices to connect to by default.  I see some devices where connected to eero access points in different rooms rather then the one in the same room as the device.

  • I am just going through the same now. Eero support lost all my previous naming after  I had a failed gateway. 

  • Same here.  From the eero product page, I thought my new eero 6 mesh wi-fi router was going to pull all my custom device names over from Alexa.  Nope.  Does anyone else out there have a hack for this, maybe?  Much obliged, if you'd post it here.  Thanks!
