Request: Dynamic DNS Support

Support for a few basic DynDNS services (DynDNS, NoIp, etc) would be greatly appreciated for remote access.

Currently I'm having to run a control applet/service on my local PC to keep everything up-to-date (and it generally works); however being able to do it on the router would be ideal.

Much thanks.

  • Working in IT, and with the amount of much lower end routers, I find it disheartening that Eero still has not implemented this into their product!  Come on Eero!

  • sell it and move on obviously eero does not care.

  • I had to have DDNS for my doorbell and security system. I find it hard to believe that eero hasn't implemented it. I haven't sold my Eero system (yet) but I did replace them with Netgear Orbi. The Orbi are big and clunky but they support DDNS and know about No-IP and other DDNS venders. It's sad. I hope I can resurrect my eero system in the future... but it looks doubtful.

  • As a systems integrator this is a much needed feature. I like the ease of use, reliability and security of the eeros product and wish I could use it in all my projects. However, for home automation installs that require the end user to control remotely I use a router that can support DDNS.

  • Unfortunately this isn't even on the "under consideration list". Neither is VPN. Guys I recommend getting a good router and putting the Eero in bridged mode. The features of this product are too limited and these are essentially extremely expensive access points. Although I will admit, they do the wireless piece pretty damn good! I have full coverage in my 3-4 story house with only three Eeros.

  • Moving from Linksys Velop mesh to Eero, I copied down all of my old settings, and this was the only thing missing from my list.  Like many others, I've installed a dynamic DNS client on a computer for now.

  • I match several of the use-cases below.  I have the DynDNS updater utility running on one of the computers in my network, but it really is not efficient or effective.  How hard can this be to add?  Especially for two years?

  • Pretty crazy that 2 years on this is still "Under Consideration". Basic feature. C'mon eero.

  • May 2019 - this is an issue. Linksys in early 2000s had DDNS support. From my discussion with TS it sounds like they dont understand what is is. I refuse having to have a third party client running the update

  • I am running dyn’s Update client on a machine that I can keep always on but this is not ideal.  Add another piece of troubleshooting into the mix.

  • It's been two years... adding support for dynamic dns services isn't that complex...unless the eeros os is already maxing firmware space on the hardware.

  • This is a great request. Currently I have a Synology NAS performing this function, but I'd like to see it natively in my Eero.

  • DDNS is a basic feature for any modern firewall.  Support for Port Forwarding without support for Dynamic DNS is like removing the street number from your house, then putting the front door in a different location every three months, and expecting not to frustrate the people who need access to your house.

    Of course there are workarounds!  But that's not the reason I invested in Eero!  I believe we all invested in Eero to some degree or another so us nerds in the family didn't have to keep maintaining workarounds supporting those in the family who just want things to always work.

    Bottom line DDNS is low hanging fruit in terms of cost benefit in relation to development effort.  Give us one less thing to maintain Eero!  =D

  • I’ll add this this should be a basic feature without having to use the paid support. I have three more locations that I’m going to add mesh to, but this feature is key. Really a shame such a simple feature hasn’t been included. That plus the ability to vpn all traffic through a router are so basic.

  • EERO Support Team:

    I see that the request for Dynamic DNS is "under consideration".

    Could you give us an idea of when a determination will be made, given that the feature has been requested continually for over a couple years now by many, many people?

  • Sad that I just bought a new Eero Pro 3 pack and found out it has no DDNS support. I have several cameras at home I cannot access externally :(

      xtract You can get them by using the enabler on the DDNS provider each time you restart your network. Not as good as being built into the router, but you can access the cameras using the eero3 as your router.

    I will have to front-end Eero with a Linksys box to get this working.

  • Me too.  I just installed my eero 3 with each eero wired, and love it.  I am currently bridged to allow DDNS from old router for security cameras and home automation.  I’d also like to see a second non-guest SSID allowed, as I just spent a few hours resetting WiFi cams, due to them being on my 5g SSID on old router.  Another simple feature would be to allow a nickname for devices, especially the ones that the hostnames don’t show up.  Keep up the great work!
