Will Wall Mounting hurt performance?


I tried searching this topic but couldn't find anything specifically answering this.  It seems the eero themselves emphasize that I should place the eero on a flat surface due to the fact that it emanates it's signal mostly on the plane with which it is placed.

I really like the 3rd party vertical wall mounts to get devices off my counters but fear it will have a fairly dramatic effect on performance.  I'm gonna test it myself but wanted to ask here to see if there was any prior experience.

  • There's several discussions about wall mounts on reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/eero/search?q=wall%20mount&restrict_sr=1

    And here's a discussion from this community: https://community.eero.com/t/18mwb3/wallmount-a-eero-unit

    To summarize, wall mounting isn't officially supported, but it's unlikely to have a noticeable impact on performance.

      cMoo92 Thanks for the links.  I was just asking if anyone has experienced decreased performance, not how to mount vertically.  It seems there isn't hard evidence that there is a decrease in performance but that it's not recommended.

      I will test =) .

  • Hi, efenili –

    Thanks for reaching out, and welcome to the Community! So, as far as wall mounts are concerned, the main thing to keep in mind is material. Metal mounts will tend to inhibit and interfere with the eero signal, and can keep the eeros from operating at their full potential.

    Past that, the broadcast pattern of the eeros tends to be weaker on the underside of the unit, which means that if you have it placed perpendicularly on a wall, the area opposite the wall will potentially have a weaker signal. With this in mind, if possible we recommend vertically mounting on a wall towards the perimeter of the house, with the dome of the eero facing inward.

    If you have any questions or concerns with the network after trying out the wall mounts, please feel free to call us directly at 877-659-2347 so we can take a look at the network and offer suggestions for improvement or optimization. Thanks again for sharing your thoughts, and welcome to the Community!
