Daily speed test...

Hi all -

I'm new to eero with a 4 system set up. I have to say that I am quite impressed with the product and how it works. Very nice.

I am aware of the daily speed test that is run automatically. My question is does this speed test run daily at the same time, or random times during the 24 period? If it runs at the same time, I'm not sure of the value add, but if it is random times, that would allow aggregated data which would provide a better "balance" from a QoS perspective.

I have only had my eero's up and running for two days, so I may be a bit premature with this question. Yesterday, I manually ran the test at 07:49 AM. This morning, the test ran automatically at 07:40 AM.

Great system! I'm anxious to see how it gets better with age.

    Hi  rockinray

    Thanks for writing in and welcome to the eero community!

    The speed test will run at the same time every day. I hope this helps!

      Jeff C. Sorry to revive an old thread but I have a related question.  I noticed that my eero does its daily speed test at 8:41am each day. Why this time? Can I change it? Seems like such a random daily marker.

      Thanks for the question, WeTheNorth – the eero speed-test time is chosen randomly by network, and there's not a way currently to change it. If you're ever concerned that the automated speed-test isn't showing the optimal or most accurate results, please feel free to trigger a speed-test manually via the app – that result will remain in the app until the next speed-test, whether manual or automatic.

      Past that, if you have any questions or concerns about the speeds or consistency of your network, please call us at 877-659-2347 or email support@eero.com and we'd be happy to assist further with your performance!

    Thanks for letting me know. If it makes sense, could this feature be added at some time?

    I would love to be able to change the time as the daily time is during when there is usually heavy usage across many devices in my home.
