Fantastic stuff and this is one more pro consumer moves that separates Eero from its competitors.
Band steering is just what I wanted.
Some of my wild wishes for eero Labs:
- Replace Google Thread (which is hardly used by anyone outside Google) with Bluetooth mesh networking
- Profile that can throttle bandwidth (or at least deprioritize)
- If Internet is down, allow LAN to operate even after eero restarts (such as recovering from power outage)
- This is more mobile app feature, and it may not be technically possible. But it would be awesome if the app (perhaps as macOS and Windows helper app?) can be used to figure out optimal places to install additional eero units.
How about a way to upload the Roomba Wifi Strength layout map of your house into the app :)
Very nice! Thank you for this as I greatly appreciate it. Hopefully I'll launch the app one day and see DPI enabled.
This is why I bought into the eero system. I use a VPN for work and it seem to have problem when the Smart Queue Management is turned on. Thanks for looking into this.
Would love to see a feature that limits the usage of a particular IP address or device maybe based on hour of usage, like on a child’s laptop, they are limited to 5 hours a week and then they can no longer access the internet.
I've been looking for something like this from you guys. But - not seeing it. running android/18.104.22.168102 - nothing under network settings.
I enjoy the new features as well.
My only request would be a proprietary VPN connection. One that can ask eero servers what my dynamically assigned IP is using my account credentials and establish a secure 256 bit encrypted tunnel from my devices.
The need is is mostly based around both personal and business. Personal to have a secure connection to an internal NAS. Business would benefit going on vacation and accessing my company workstation securely.
I like the partner feature of Encrypt.me for safely browsing while on public resources, but would rather not have to rely on a service such as Synology for VPN when I feel an eero solution would be far more fitting even as an additional paid service.
I wanted to report that with the Smart Queue Management on iOS 11.4 beta cannot complete an iCloud backup. I turned this off and backups work fine. Just wanted to give you that feedback.
Nest Outdoor Cam glitch running with eero SQM...
This afternoon at about 3:45 each of my four outdoor Nest cams went offline for a minute or two. Not sure why. In Canada, Nest outdoor cams are not allowed to run at 5ghz so they are defaulted to 2.4. I have no control over the frequency.
I cannot blame the glitch on the new eero Labs features, but it’s the first time ever that my Outdoor cams have disconnected - only thing that has changed is that I’ve enabled SQM. My indoor Nest cams (running at 5ghz) were not affected, so it seems it affected only 5 ghz cams. I know they were affected by the recorded history .
Figured I’d mention it in case others have similar issues. Cannot day it’s eero SQM yet but just exploring ...
Loving Eero Labs... now, can we have a PPPoE on the Labs please? Just to try this feature.. maybe even permanently Beta, lol
