Signal Strength Between Units
Idea for the app, I recently had an issue where one of my four units had signal issues. Your tech support helped out and replaced the one bad unit. All is better now. In the conversation with support, they ran a LAN test. It would be nice to have this option through the app as well as showing the signal strength of each unit in order to maximize the system.
Hi Andrew —
Thanks for your feedback and welcome to the eero community! I'm sorry to hear about the issue you encountered with your system. However, I am happy to hear we were able to get everything resolved!
I have also moved this topic over to our Feedback & discussion section so that others can provide their feedback and/or interest in this topic.
The status of this request says 'implemented', but I don't see where within the app I can view the signal strength of each Eero other than the icon next to each device indicating the signal strength for whichever Eero it is currently connected to. Also, what do the different colors mean? I assume green means good and amber means slow. Is there a 3rd color I have yet to see (e.g., red)?
All my eero’s have Ethernet cable… I would like to see if both of my eero have a good wifi signal and did not overlap… I have 2 in my home and they are in bridge mode on my 8port switch.
1. I like that you can see signal strength for each eero device, but it would be great to know which device those were connecting to. Like we have 6-10 Amazon echo devices that we use, and are supposed to repeat signal, but it’s unclear which other EERO device they are connected to. And we have placed some Echos in rooms to repeat signal, however a couple say they are too close to other eero devices and will automatically disable the repeater feature. Which complicates my goal of creating a full mesh network that completely covers the house.
2. It would be great to prioritize or deprioritize devices/ profiles. My wife and I both work remotely at home, and with many meetings with video and content sharing, we need to ensure strong speeds, we have 6 kids, and they like to play Xbox and PlayStation, watch YouTube, and play other games online. So I would like the ability to prioritize mine and my wife’s phones and computers over any other things that my kids do, (since our work/meetings tasks are what allows us to keep the lights on and bills paid, so If the network has lags, I don’t want her or myself to feel those impacts, and the kids being able to play/stream in 4K with no lags, is definitely not something that is critical:)
