      Sieglock can you see some of the news parent control features?  I feel like I've been reassuring a long time to for this. I think it works be nice to have screen time confirm per device or profile.

  • I don't understand how eero is picking and choosing what to implement. This company does not care about your thoughts. A BASIC network router function that ALL big time players have: Administering eero from desktop - that has 326 votes - and yet the stuff being implemented consists of being able to Turn LED's off and another iPad app...... seriously?

      ksutkowski honestly, it has to be because normal people would never use it. Advance users would love it. Hopefully they will but I do it. I’m pretty sure they have access to it. It probably shows ton of info. They just don’t want people calling support over info they don’t understand even tho it’s normal.

      kodyaten Concur. I want to be able to see a log of up and down times. Typically this kind of data is found in the normal router system menu. Wish they had it.

  • As a new EERO 6 customer, I’m highly disappointed that this page is 1 year out of date.

  • I am extremely disappointed in the eero pro 6 i just installed. Very little management control over the configuration. Pretty much just wide open access to your network, when your kids give away the password. Even if they don't i have little confidence that this thing is very secure. They can't even keep this forum current. I'm returning this thing and getting something i can configure and have some confidence that it's secure.

  • Update this page and add throttling. There have been tons of request for this feature over several years. It's not hard to implement. It's a feature that has been around for decades and is available on several devices and software

  • Allow automatic pausing of devices when administrator devices leave the network. 
     

    I have to manually pause certain devices in my house when my wife and I both leave the house to discourage our children from turning different TVs on all over the house and ignoring their younger siblings. If there was a feature that automatically paused selected devices when both my wife and I leave the network it would help out a great deal.

  • Really need the mac address filtering [https://community.eero.com/t/m2691d/feature-request-mac-address-filtering] feature. No point on blocking devices when it's very easy to spoof mac addresses.

    This feature as well especially when I'm around computers more then my phone

      cccmdm I don't know if this is true. With small kids, I think blocking devices access to stuff is sufficient. I think the better bet would be to block or limit devices by default. Specifically, unknown devices could be automatically dropped into a default profile and we could then limit that profile how we see fit, even block if necessary. My chief concerns when my son's friend brings his laptop, getting access to our network, and then has the ability to SEE or DO anything, until I lock down their permissions. I really would think this would be a HUGE, and yet simple thing to accomplish. I think supporting profiles is the hard part, and that part is done. We only now need to take unknown Macs, and automatically drop them into a profile.

      Pauly The 'Guest Access' exists which would let you prevent them from accessing network files, streaming audio, and your other smart devices. I think moving unknown devices to a default profile feature could work but, for someone who understands it mac address filtering would just allow me to whitelist specific mac addresses on my network for the devices I want. A potential bonus would be if the Guest network was excluded from the filtering and I could just toggle it on/off if it's needed. I would say that with smaller kids what you propose works but when they are old enough to find ways they will. Most routers that you would buy comes with mac address filtering anyways

      I could be wrong but if Computer and Console device types get auto recognized by eero it would defeat the purpose of unknown devices to the default group.

      cccmdm I don't think the allowlist Mac Address approach would work at least not in an ideal fashion. I used to do this years ago on my old Apple Airport. I dont want to prevent any new devices from accessing the internet. Specifically, I am looking to prevent certain actions. For example, I dont want to prevent unknow MAC addresses from accessing the internet, but I want SafeSearch, YouTube Restricted, Adult Content, Illegal or Criminal, and Violent, Chat and Messaging, and Social filters turned on. I also want prevent access to other devices on my network. The Guest WiFi network would handle that last one, but the filters, as far as I can tell are only allowed to be toggled on using a Profile. As for older kids finding a way, I agree, that it makes it more difficult, but it is possible. Mac Address filtering typically fails, because people can just change their MAC to something else, but placing ALL unknown Macs into a default profile that has been locked down, prevents this. Of couse, there is the option of having a user select the same MAC address as another device in a more permissive profile, but the moment, a device jumps on the network as another device already on the network, they should both be moved to the default profile. Then there is the option of turning off the device with the copied Mac address, but there are other pieces of metadata that could be tied to the Mac address (Manufacturer and Hostname for example) that could be futher used to verify the authenticity of the Mac address. From a user's point of view, this would all be transparent however.  Then there is VPN, but that is another story. I think I am going to make a feature request on that one...

      Pauly That's totally fair but I just want to express is that I'm not referring to mac address filtering of itself but mac address whitelisting you can read more about it here if you'd like https://www.csoonline.com/article/3562429/whitelisting-explained-how-it-works-and-where-it-fits-in-a-security-program.html
       

      simply put it allows me to preset the mac addresses I want allowed on the network and no other mac address other then the specified ones would be denied access demanding that I give approval first then spoofing wouldn't work since if they were to attempt to spoof their mac address it would not be on the whitelist.

      EDIT: I read more of what you had to say and yeah I totally agree that they should incorporate the host names and manufacturer as well I think that maybe alone mac address filtering wouldn't work but if we had these systems combined available to us then it would be really difficult to get around all of it but it's that fact that we don't.

  • Attached is what happens when trying to view my network history in any other time scale than weekly. This is not a glitch, but Eero attempting to charge a (recently-increased) price for the pleasure of viewing my Daily or Monthly data usage. 

     

    This makes the product useless to me now, as it would many others with rate limited plans. This is brutal as many of your customers, like myself, have bought into your mesh system, so I have over 4 products to sell if you do not fix this blatant money grab. 

     

    Eero did not invent the procedure of viewing data on different time lengths. It's bad to first start imposing a required monthly or yearly payment... After you've increased the price last month... with no way to purchase a lifetime subscription. All together, it's mischievous and with bad faith.

     

    Bluntly, Eero is being a bad company by hiding this information behind a pay wall when it can barely be considered a "feature". Logging is what network equipment does by default, and charging for it is almost sinister. 

     

    Let's be clear: viewing your data usage on a Router is not a feature, it's a requirement of the device to function, and obscuring it was a form of strategic development meant to obscure otherwise available information, for profit.

     

    That's why I have responded with a countdown until I remove these devices. You have 30 days to release a fix for this issue. I refuse to let you "profit" off of obscuring such basic information.

     

    Rest assured when I sell the device, I will be honest as to my experience. 

     

    Do the right thing and allow all users to view their data usage on a Daily, Weekly, or Monthly basis. There is no reason to charge for that, as logging is a fundamental feature of networking equipment. You are rather lame for charging money for that.

     

    Unless you can explain how you've invented the premise of viewing network statistics in different timescales, you cannot justify that as a "feature" and must reverse course before I sell all of these devices. 

     

    Thanks!
