Support for the Desktop
I'd like to have the ability to manage eero from a desktop. The phone apps were well thought out, and work well. However, having the ability to do this from my laptop/desktop would be very useful for me anyway. Either browser or (for me) a Windows 10 UWP would be awesome!
Phone apps works well.... However, please figure out the security stuff and create a windows 10 desktop app. Working off a phone just isn't convenient or easy.
Finally set up my Eero today, just wish I had bought it this year's Black Friday and not last year's.... then I had the 2nd gen now.
So, yes, the app is nice but my first impulse after initial setup was to look up the router's web interface. Not expecting an Eero's to be as detailed and technical as dd-wrt but anything would be helpful. After all, when I work, I don't work on my phone, I work on my laptop/desktop. And from laptop/desktop, I control my Spotify playback, too, even though my phone is my primary playback device. I don't want to switch back and forth between phone and laptop/desktop.
I don't buy the security arguments. Why is a secured connection from an app more secure than a secured connection from a browser? They use the same encryption technology.
And hey, UPnP was enabled by default and you dare making security arguments?
In fact, right now I find myself working and there seems to be an issue with my network printer. I need my cell phone now to check the printer's network connectivity, now where did I put it...
Web interface please! No desktop app. Just a simple web-based UI that would work on any OS.

Not going to happen, drop the subject already
Picked up an eero with 2 beacon setup on a whim and was surprised to find I couldn't manage my network from my laptop. While I am getting used to the phone app and would like to see a dedicated iPad app, I think a local web interface or Windows 10 app would be very useful.
I think both sides have some valid points and hope it is reconsidered in the future!
Having over 90 devices, many which require port forwarding and DHCP rules, it would be handy to have a desktop application or access from a web browser to enter these rules. Thank you.
