More accurate device icons?
When I name my device an Amazon Echo Dot, it looks like a giant loudspeaker. It should look like an Echo Dot.
When I name my device a Security Camera, the image should be a security camera, not a generic wireless icon.
Ditto for Nintendo Switch. The icon should look like a Nintendo Switch, or at least a generic gamepad.
And for some weird reason, naming my Belkin Wemo Mini Smart Outlet - “Wemo Mini - Noise Machine” makes it look like a TV. It should look like a smart power outlet.
I had a TP Link repeater prior to the Eero which in all ways was worse than the Eero, except that it allowed you to customize the icons in an obvious way. It’s a small polishing detail that TP Link and (especially) Apple get right. It enhances pride in ownership.
And others have expressed similar requests, for reference:
Thanks for listening!
Hi, Eperitus – Thanks for your feedback here!
As you're already aware, the eero app currently has the capability of selectively providing unique icons to devices, but as it happens the icons can be based either on hostname & manufacturer or based on device nickname. We have a pretty broad variety of icons already, and we're currently exploring ways to make the icons feature more robust and customizable. That said, however, we ask for your understanding that it may not be feasible to create unique icons for every potential device that may be connected to the network, and we'll likely continue to use more generic icons – for instance, our gamepad controller icon – for devices like Nintendo Switch.
We absolutely appreciate your continuing insights and thoughts, and we appreciate having you here in the Community!
