HomeKit Compatibility

If we can designate certain devices, when they all leave the network, triggers a "nobody's at home" signal to Apple HomeKit (as well as the Google Home/Alexa equivalent), that'd be really useful. It would obviously work in the opposite way as well, triggering a "there's somebody home" signal. Geofencing through HomeKit can sometimes be unreliable (especially in a high-rise building for instance), but a connection to my private network is an unmistakeable signal.

That can be useful to trigger events like locking all the doors/enabling security cameras, turning off lights, etc.

  • that could be pretty useful actually. The presence sensor on my other "smart" home app is not very accurate.

    Something at the router level has the potential of being more reliable

  • Thanks for your patience, Jhaybie! As of today, eero now fully supports HomeKit integration. Please make sure your app is updated to version 3.3.1 to use the new feature. You'll need to be at home on your eero WiFi in order to add HomeKit devices. If you run into any questions or concerns, please reach out to support at 877-659-2347 or email support@eero.com
