Aliases. I wish you’d allow eero to identify a device with an alias

This is a simple feature for you to add. Currently when a device connects to eero it identifies itself by its hostname. But I have no way of changing that host name within eero.


For example my smart sprinkler connects and identifies itself as expressif which means nothing to me. I wish I could add a “sprinkler” alias to it.

Secondly the eero does allow categorizing devices that connect via the guest network. Why not? I might still want some devices to connect vis the guest network and I’d want to categorize them.

  • You can rename any device by tapping on the name and typing.

  • It would be nice if eero had the ability to assign hostnames by importing device names from the Alexa app.
