FEATURE REQUEST: NEW DEVICE NOTIFICATION

I previously used Skydog routers and one of the features that they provided was sending a text message to my phone any time a new device would join the network.  I could then assign the device to a profile or blacklist it entirely.  This turned out to be awesome as I had a neighbor successfully get onto my network.  I wouldn't have known they were there, otherwise.   I'd really like to see this feature added.

  • Thanks for the feedback,  VoteForPedro 😀

    I'm happy to share this with our team. We don't have any plans at this time regarding different notifications, but this type of feedback/use case is always helpful! I look forward to hearing the thoughts of others regarding this matter!

  • I really hope this gains a foothold in a future update.  Part of Eero's advertising is security.  This is an obvious feature.  Is it better for an Eero owner to have no notification of a new device detected on the network unless they manually go looking on regular basis, or to have a text msg that draws there attention that there is a new device on the network?  In a large work environment, of course that would be unmanageable.  But for home and small business users?  Absolutely we should have the option.

    Other users, would you not like the option to be notified of a new device on your network?

  • Yes please! - https://community.eero.com/t/63mrvq/wifi-security-feature-requests consider all the upvotes in my requests upvotes here as well!

    I would like to highlight the importance of Deauth attack detections as well.

  • This is a primary selling point for Luma, and would be easy to implement. No reason not to. If nothing more, from a business perspective, getting users into your app should be a key focus. Generates customer loyalty every time they are in the app. Notifications are a logical step towards that, and is a HUGE reason why people do not want something awful like Netgear's Orbi (have you seen their 1998 app?!) or even the big router apps like Asus, etc.

    This is truly a feature that should be run back up the chain.

  • I would like to add text and iPhone notifications when the router loses connection from the ISP. A robust notification system would be great and there are lots of possibilities.

  • Another vote for notifications when devices join the network. Would love this security feature. I have it with my Comcast gateway as well, but have lost it since I bridged the Comcast gateway in favor of Eero.

  • It would be cool if we got some type of push notification when the network goes offline, and/or a new device is added. But being able to turn on what is, and isn't being pushed would also be nice. :)
