Feature Request: support more than one non-guest SSID

With more IoT devices in the home, security is becoming a huge concern with the attacks that are possible. 

 I'd like to see eero support more than one non guest SSID so I can isolate my IOT devices away from other sensitive devices like laptops and servers. 

I could use the guest SSID that's currently available but I want to not have guest devices be able to interact with those devices  

One way is to just add another SSID option, in addition to the one that's possible already. However I'd love to see eero adopt Google wifi's approach which seems to be really unique. 

Google allows a second SSID (call is SSID2), but all devices on it can be access from SSID1 (but not the other way around). This is crucial to not break scenarios where these IoT devices need you to have access to them but don't want to have hassle of switching wifi networks.

  • I agree with everything that everyone wrote here. This feature is by far my #1 request for eero. Even if it's just a single SSID (though I'd love to have multiple for IOT reasons).

  • Yes please!


    this would be fantastic. I would literally not leave my clients the choice of router anymore and just install Eeros in all houses

  • What's the maximum number of SSIDs on an Eero mesh?

    I'm really hoping to get 2 main SSID & maybe a guest SSID. I want my guests be able to control the TVs with the Samsung app. 

    With my current router (netgear) it works great on the main Wifi network, but I don't know why, on the guest network nothing ever works: the samsung iPhone app never finds the TV.

  • Any update on this feature request?  I have multiple IoT devices that I would like to move off my primary network.

  • I would also like to see an update on this. I am currently running an "IoT" family group on my main network with Eero+ turned on. Between switches, bulbs, sensors, and cameras, I have 38 devices on it and that is only going to grow. I'd love for this to have a built in solution.
