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!

  • I purchased the eero for my home a year or so ago because I liked their specs, but missed the fact they had no support for browser-based management. I hadn’t run across a router that didn’t so that never crossed my mind. Now, I recommend against eero to any customers, family, or friends because of this one shortcoming. Being a computer hardware and software engineer for decades, I don’t see how one could believe a dedicated cell phone app is more secure than a secure browser (that’s available for multiple devices). I am also one that manages all my tech from one browser-based dashboard. A browser is the common point no matter the device. I will not be limited to a small-screen pocket device for this one appliance. Unless I see eero come around, my upcoming upgrade & my recommendations will be for another brand. NOT A HAPPY CUSTOMER.

  • For those more technically-minded, there's a product called Bluestacks that is basically an Android virtual machine that runs on your desktop.  If you install it, you can download the Android mobile app for eero and monitor your mesh with that.  Not quite as good as a native Windows or MacOS app, but it works and accomplishes what folks are asking for.

      RobA_CA  - That's a good idea and I tried it, only problem is I need to run virtual machines and Bluestacks won't run on a machine with virtualization enabled.

  • Another gratuitous vote and comment.  The app works in Anbox, but it's not ideal.
