App for Windows 10 (Microsoft Surface Pro)


With Windows 10 now on 43% of all PCs I'm not sure why you would not be eager to develop a Windows 10 application.  As a business with an interest in deploying a mesh network, eero seems like the industry leader.  Without a Windows application your product is just not an option.  

With tools available from Microsoft to deploy your code on a Windows 10 PC, this project does not seem like a huge investment.

Are you considering this anytime soon?

  • Hi  TommyLGrundy

    Thanks for writing in. At this time, we have no plans to share regarding a Windows 10 app. We are always monitoring interest, and I'll be happy to pass this along to our team.

    Thanks again.

  • Eero is designed to be run from a smartphone like iPhone or Android.  Windows 10 really isn't all that easy to code for compared to iOS or Android; doesn't help that Microsoft has also said they have no more software updates planned for any Windows phones including their Lumia phones, which does not inspire developers to make apps for Microsoft devices.

  • Richard, for the home market the decision to manage the system on a smart phone make sense; however, managing from a Windows PC seems to be a no brainer.  Like you, I see no reason to code for Windows Mobile, but Windows 10 PC seems to be to be perfectly logical next step.

    eero seems like a great product, one I'd very much like to manage from my Surface Pro.

  • I just contacted Microsoft and they said they are going to continue to do and offer software updates  for Windows 10 mobile. I am on the Windows insider program for mobile and still get updates.

  • Even if there is not an intention to support Windows 10 on the Phone/Mobile platform it still makes sense to support an app for Windows 10.  You could build a Windows Universal App that would work across all Windows platforms and get Desktop/Surface which would provide a large base of usage.  Look at development tools like BlueMix or Xamarin and you can get a cross platform support (iOS/Android/Windows) to reduce the cost of the additional channel.

  • Totally concur, at least support Windows 10. With an up and coming mesh system being challenged by the big boys, they should cover all bases to increase market share or they will be left behind.

  • i would also appreciate the windows 10 app. im 32 and just a home owner. i have bought the eero system and ITS KICKIN!!! over 230mbps wifi speeds. Incredible for my house! Recomended already but this product should not just 2/3rds of the way and stop. i just hope this doesnt mean that the product will only live up to 2/3rds the hype.

  • It would be nice for large sets of data entry such as Port Forwarding rules to have a desktop or web client.

  • I am not sure why you need an app...just a web interface would work!  It seams kind of silly that you can't use a computer to configure a router in order to connect the computer to the router.  I know some IT people who won't recommend this to their clients because it breaks from a traditional interface.  Imagine needing a special app for each different wireless network you help manage or monitor.  typing in a IP address in a browser is so much easier.  I would like to still see an app though!

  • I also would like to see an app for the desktop computer.  I do not connect my phone to any devices.

  • You mean I just spent over $500.00 on a home wifi product and you guys don't think it's necessary to offer a Windows 10 program app? Are you kidding me???

  • New to Eero and like it so far.  However, I do not understand why there is not some mechanism for accessing the information in the app via my Windows 10 computer, which is where I do most of my home network management.

  • I do hope Eero will make a app for windows 10, like the last post I use my my W10 machine to handle my network except the Eero.

  • This was asked 2 years ago, businesses don't want to manage their networks with a mobile device all the time. Any updates?

      They’ve said on a number of occasions that it’s too much of a security issue.

    • JTswift JTswift Given how insecure iOS is, and even with the mild insecurity of Android, that's not a valid argument.
