Assign a device to a specific eero

I was recently going through my connected device list and noticed I have some of my devices connected to an eero which isn't the closest one to it.  Wouldn't it make more sense to bind a device to a specific eero?  For example, my Ring doorbell is maybe 10 - 15 feet from the closest eero but it is connected to one upstairs and further away.  Not sure if that would cause a QoS kind of issue but for stationary devices I don't see them moving from one eero to another (Nest products, Amazon Echo, Ring doorbell, etc.)

  • My cameras are all solely 2.4GHZ, so that logic is flawed.

  • My devices are also only 2.4 GHz but I still see them connecting to farthest and weakest ones sometimes. So above guidance that you got from eero support won't work.

      praasp contact the device manufacturer.   The client chooses the AP it connects to.

      txgunlover thanks. I know that. All such answers are already discussed in this topic thread with 1000s of replies. I have also replied previously. There were some other suggestions to see if eero can consider. These are older devices where talking to manufacturer etc now does not make sense or can't happen now. It is just that this deficiency in eero was not known or at least, I did not know before purchasing.
