Help with CUJO Setup

So I’ve read here that CUJO outperforms Eero Plus especially since it’s a lifetime subscription.  I went ahead and ordered one and should arrive by the end of the week.  After reading up on setting it up with eero, on the CUJO website,  it never mentions the odd set up of sorts that I have.  Please advise.  


My setup is FIOS actiontec router with WiFi radio off and in bridge mode, Ethernet from ONT.  I chose to have my Eero and prior mesh routers before that, handle the IP distribution. It really only serves via coaxial for my FIOS TV.   Also I wanted full functionality from the app and the routers in bridge mode would kill all that.  


So when my CUJO finally arrives, is it hardlined from the ONT to the FIOS moca router or hardlined inbetween the FIOS and the Eero.  Again, the FIOS router doesn’t really do anything for distribution, the eero handles all of that.

  • It'd be good to see your source on Cujo outperforms. I'm just curious. 

    I think we have one of the easiest and most comprehensive offerings out there and we keep making it better.

      weaves that you do, but if you guys offered the lifetime subscription, I wouldn’t like others, try out alternative methods in secure our network.  (Hint, hint).  Lol.  


      Also, I really don’t need the VPN and password offers but i do need parental control and protection since I have numerous cameras and smart home devices.  

    • Chi7 There's a pretty significant set of ongoing costs to offer our security product and we have a very, very high active rate of networks even after 3+ years. Because of that, it isn't feasible to offer a lifetime subscription. For product where deactivation rates are high then this works, but people love their eeros.

      weaves totally understand.  but at the end of the day, what's cost effective becomes a factor.  CUJO seems to play well with Eero and has a bit more power.  I'm not knocking eero plus, I actually enjoy it's ease of use and the fact that it's integrated with no setup on my part.  But a lifetime subscriptions vs $99 a year is def something to consider.
