Wiring Eeros Together

Hello, since Eero now as the security features I am now looking to buy the new Eero Pro but would like to wire them together so I don't have to worry about any degradation between the devices. I know they have the 5Ghz backhaul which is fine but I already have the wiring in place for the wired connections, this is why I would like to use that. Does Eero Pro support it? Thank you

  • Hi  ccigas -

    Thanks for your interest in eero plus and for reaching out! Most definitely. You can always wire any and all eeros into your network except for Beacons (which don't have Ethernet ports).

    This will work just fine with the Pro pack (three gen2 eeros). Let us know if there's anything we can help with.

  • Thanks Scott! Not sure when the Eero Pros will be out to buy (if you could answer that, it would be awesome), but if I purchased the Gen1 version right now, could I use that with the new Plus service? Is there any downside between Gen 1 and 2 with this service?

  • Jeff C. thanks !  Since I would be hooking up the Eeros with wires, is there really a downside of not having the second 5Ghz band? Or should I buy the Pro and wait the few extra weeks.

  • Really depends on your home and the number of devices you have connected. With tri-band, you will have an extra 5 Ghz band, meaning if you have many devices trying to communicate with eero at once, the extra band will help reduce any potential congestion.

    If you'd like the latest and greatest, you can definitely wait for the Pro Pack. Buying 2nd generation eeros will also mean you will have Thread support, which will be providing upcoming support for low-powered Thread devices.

    I hope this helps!
