    • cMoo92 there’s no way to add the new Eero 6 or Eero Pro 6 to HomeKit, like you could with previous Eero’s. Apple also confirms the Eero 6 and Eero Oro 6 are NOT currently supported HoneKit accessories. Eero’s website also specifically does NOT say that these new routers support HoneKit. That’s why I’m asking if that functionality will come back.

  • The Eero 6 routers. Does not support Homekit like the previous eero devices. Don't know why. I'm honestly upset about it because I have the Eero pro and replaced it with the new Eero 6. To find out it's not homekit is really upsetting. I spoke with an eero support member. He told me that it would support HomeKit, which was not true. I hope they make it support Homekit. Now I'm stuck with two "no response" router on my homekit and I can't delete.

      There’s a thread about this on Reddit where the CEO indicated that the eero 6 systems were undergoing HomeKit certification with Apple. So it should just be a matter of time. In the meantime you can get rid of your oils routers in the Home app. But you must select the “Remove Accessory” option on the gateway eero. It doesn’t appear on the other devices. When you do that all of the eero’s you have setup in HomeKit will be removed.

    • Thank you, I was able to remove the accessory from my HomeKit with your advice. Yes, what you said is true I got a reply back from eero customer support stating the same fact is you said that they are waiting for Apple HomeKit certification.
