App for Windows 10 (Microsoft Surface Pro)

Development,

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?

  • Windows 11 will be available in October 2021 and will allow running Android apps natively. You will then be able to manage from a PC. Pro does not enable more enterprise features in the app at all, just a dedicated third band for less contended backhaul connectivity. I am personally glad there is no built in web interface taking up CPU cycles on the eero devices but wish the app was slightly more feature rich.

  • Being saddled with a phone-only management system also means that in order for me to manage these devices, I have to allow them unfettered two-way communication outside of my network with a black box system I have neither control or visibility on, just to have another device (my phone) communicate from off my network, through this black box, and back into my network.  In other words, I have to just trust that Amazon (the owners of eero) will be much more trustworthy with this unfettered access to my home network and its data, than they are with Alexa and Ring data, and won't allow anyone that hacks their networks to then come through into mine.  From a cyber-security standpoint (yes, I work heavily on the security side of things at my company, and have a CISSP), this is not even laughable:  it is downright irresponsible.

    If they had a management interface that could be accessed either from my network, or from a direct cable connection, this gaping security hole could be closed up.  But no.  They say, "we want your feedback, so we can improve the product" but just look at this thread.  Over 4 years of users telling eero that they want this, but they can't seem to be bothered with doing it.
