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.
As a service provider, having a hidden SSID only managed from Insight would be useful so the customer doesn't accidentally change the wifi settings and cut the access to the set top box (IPTV) in doing so... VLAN association would be a nice to have to.
6 years. Wow. 6 years and still "Under Investigation" with no sign of movement.
What a shame, I feel let down and I just moved to eero! This was one of the features I expected 'out of the box' :-o
It has been 6 years since this feature request. This is a total let down. This should have been a feature from the get go.
There is no reason for eero not so support multiple ssid on a meshed network device, with each ssid (network) isolated from the other ssid but not from devices on the same ssid. This feature is supported by most mesh WiFi vendors and puts eero at a competitive and technical disadvantage
