Eero plug-in beacons compatible with eero pro 6 gateway.
I love eero. Works great! I recently bought a eero 6 pro gateway to replace my old eero pro 5 and I love the increased speed and range! I’ve suggested eero products to my friends and they’re also very satisfied with it!
I was on the phone with eero support and they suggested I replace my eero beacons with the new eero 6 extender stations for best performance.
I said I’ll stick with the older beacons I rent from my ISP for now. Because they plug-in into the outlets so they’re simple and I like that. No adaptors or pedestals needed. Also I don’t need Ethernet as it’s simply for a rental I don’t want kids or anyone messing with additional wires. It simply needs to extend the WiFi.
I also like the nightlight feature I use it on one and turn it off in the other because it’s in a bedroom. But the common area one is night in case one might want to shamble across the dining room at 2 AM and not turn on the main lights.
My feature request is for eero to create plug-in beacons just like the beacons they have now. That are compatible with the new eero 6 pro gateway to take advantage of that speed increase without needs for adaptors or Ethernet plugs. Simply plug into the wall socket and keep the optional nightlight feature.
