  • Question on this...I currently have the Eero Pro 2nd gen and have the routers added to my HomeKit and HomeKit enabled in the Eeero app.  Was going to upgrade to the  Pro 6E and I see that it does not support HomeKit.

    When they say this, does it mean it just does not provide the additional security for HomeKit devices or does it mean that HomeKit will not work at all with the Eero Pro 6E?

    • mikegoldnj this has been discussed a lot on Reddit. The Eero Pro 6E is hardware incompatible with Apple HomeKit, and will not support HomeKit, ever. Considering the fact that only Eero and Linksys were the only router vendors supporting HomeKit, and Linksys also not guaranteeing HomeKit support in upcoming routers, your options are very limited.

      Richard1864 Sorry if I seem obtuse on this.....are you saying that HomeKit devices will no longer function at all on an Eero 6E network or that the Eero 6E will just no longer support the additional security provided on the older versions?

    • mikegoldnj The only thing that's not supported by eero 6+ and Pro 6E is HomeKit Secure Router, which is the additional security features you mentioned. There's no other change between models in terms of HomeKit interoperability, so HomeKit should otherwise work normally.
