How to add Thread device and see it’s using Thread
I have a eero Pro 6 (supposedly able to use Thread and the Thread toggle button turned on in the app). When I add a new device in the eero app I don’t see any option to add a Thread device.
i have the Thread device (Wemo Smart Plug equipped with Thread capability turned on. Nor in the eero app nor in the Apple Homekit app I can find a way to add it via Thread.
When I just add the device via WiFi it works properly, but now that I have two devices (eero + Wemo) that are suppose to talk with each other via Thread I want to take advantage of that obviously?
I know I should be promted for a network key, but no cigar.
Thanks you for your advice, S.
Thread creates its own encrypted mesh network for Thread-capable devices. Each Thread-capable eero then acts as a border router, providing connectivity between the Thread mesh network and your other wifi/ethernet devices.
In the Eve app, head to "Thread Network" in the Settings section to get a look behind the curtain of your Thread network and all the different roles and connections of your Thread-enabled accessories.
Note that currently the Eve app is free.
