better admin software choices?

Is there anyone out there who uses eero and has found better software to administer the network than the iOS-based tool provided by eero? I am a cranky old fool, retired geologist (also a retired higher ed CIO) and I would STRONGLY prefer admin software that runs on macOS and can be seen on a decent-sized screen and accept input from a keyboard and mouse. I use my iPhone for calls, Facetime, quick, short txts, and to take photos. I'm too fat-fingered to put up with administering a network setup on that small pocket device.

Advice anyone?

  • There’s no other options than the mobile app provided by eero. If you have an iPad, you could use the app on there which might make things a little easier.

      cMoo92 sorry, my iPad is an iPad 2 and is stuck in a years-ago version of iOS. (and in a drawer in the office). I don't find iOS a very friendly environment, and I don't want to buy a new iPad (and maybe a keyboard) just to setup and maintain my home network. I will be looking for new gear once I finish a few of the other projects on my 2020 toDo list. And I have already told others who asked me for advice, that I would not recommend eero gear for this reason, and they can make their own choice..

  • I would like to see better options for setting up this device as well.  I will likely take it back to where I bought it and get a different unit.  I want to set up my home network and not be dependent on a web connection for the profile and functionality of the unit.  I think this design is less than the stellar reviews and price tag associated with it.  I am sorely disappointed.
