When will eero be available in Europe?
Is there any news about when eero will go on sale in Europe? Many people I know would buy it immediately if only we could buy it over here.
Please let me know.
Hi MacHTurbo —
Thanks for reaching out and for your interest in eero! At this time, eero isn't approved for use outside of the U.S. While we hope to bring our mesh network solution to regions outside of the U.S., there isn't an exact timeline to share at this time.
To stay in the loop, we suggest visiting eero.com and signing up for our updates at the bottom of the page!Reply
There is one seller on Amazon that ships to Europe. So you could use that one. Don't forget extra taxes that might be charged and you need some adapters for your specific walplug. I can tell you that everything works flawlessly here in the Netherlands. One installation I did was with 6 eero's which was completely working in less than 2 hours!!Reply
MacHTurbo thanks for this information, I am travelling to US and looking to buy it from there and bring to the UK. I have read that the power adapter are only rated at 120V ? is this true if so did you replace them . Secondly eero team also say that you need a US phone number as part of the registration for the app. Is this obligatory?
Would really appreciate your support.
firstname.lastname@example.org Power supply is universal (will work at 220V also) no need to replace. Phone number is a funny bit, because if you fill in a correct US phone number that is NOT a mobile number it can not use it but will immediately suggest to use your e-mail address instead... Why not offer this choice to begin with???
Apart from this, very silly part, Eero is the best Home Wifi system money can buy!!!
Strictly speaking i.e. according to legal requirements, WiFi products have to restrict use to a different set of channels i.e. frequencies in Europe and even different between some countries within Europe. This relates to historical use of certain frequencies by various countries military forces. Whilst I do not believe the following article gives an absolutely complete picture see - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_WLAN_channels
Due to the above whilst it is in theory possible to buy a current US version Eero and apparently it has a universal voltage PSU meaning just a plug adapter would be needed, the current product would be technically illegal to use.
Hence the importance for Eero to get their proverbial finger out and produce real genuine international versions.
Note: In reality I suspect the hardware will be 100% identical it would merely be a matter of the firmware locking down the available frequencies to match a specific territory.
As a comparison the Apple AirPort Extreme has/had a drop-down menu allowing you to specify what country you were located in. However the European version of the Airport Extreme still did not allow choosing a US setting and presumably vice versa was also true.
I am sure there are plenty of generic i.e. cheap WiFi products which do not obey this but then they are strictly speaking illegal and whatever government body is responsible could prosecute you, fine you and confiscate offending equipment.
So yes please I also want to see a European version and would not accept the current US version even with a proper UK/European plug included. Obviously any other more cosmetic localisation issues like phone number formats should also be addressed.
I have previously implemented a Cisco Meraki based solution and also a Rukus solution. These days with the still unavailability of Eero I might look at Ubiquity as well. As far as I am aware all three have proper legal European versions - certainly all three are officially sold in Europe.Reply
