Add time limits on wifi in Family Profiles within the on/off schedules

I know it's possible to set a schedule for the wifi to on/off for each user. I would like the additional feature of being able to limit my kids' usage of wifi within the schedule. For example, I have their wifi on between 7am and 8pm, but I don't actually want them using the wifi continuously during that time. I'd like to set 4 hours, for example, of maximum usage within the on/off schedule.

I tried Eero Plus, and didn't see much added value so I canceled it. If this feature was included with Eero Plus, it would be a no-brainer for me. I'd want it.

  • This feature has been suggested in the past, but unfortunately  there has been no indication form Eero that they are interested in offering it. I would absolutely buy in if this were available, and apparently many others would too. Eero, why NOT provide this? Several community members have even suggested the way to construct such a feature.

      Thanks for reaching out and for your sharing your continued interest in this feature.

      As noted in this thread, this is a feature under consideration. However, we don't have an update to share at this time. 

      As soon as we have anything to share, we will post updates on all relevant topics.

      Thanks again!

  • I would love this feature - Nintendo has an application where I can limit my child's usage and see exactly what they have been upto.  

  • Yes, please! This feature would put Eero over the top for my family. As the original poster in the other string noted (Sargent), parents don’t have the time or resources to constantly monitor children’s online time and act as gatekeeper, referee. Plus, giving the child an allotment of time, for him/her to manage, teaches them useful skills and being responsible for their time online. I also agree that this would be a “game changer” feature Eero could tout in its marketing (at least to the market with children).
