Ratings and Reviews
Good networking, poor app
WiFi signals are strong and speed is good. Setup is easy, but troubleshooting is difficult because the devices don’t offer any user configuration. You can’t tell if an Eero is working unless you unplug all other Eeros on the network.
Content filtering (i.e. restricting internet content) is assigned to individual devices, which is great for flexibility but is difficult to administer. Each time a new device connects, you receive a notification. That’s good, but by default the new device receives unfiltered internet access. So when your kid’s friend comes over and connects their phone to WiFi, they have unfiltered access until you open the app, identify their device (which is more difficult than it sounds) and assign it to a profile with certain restrictions.
Our family of four has about twenty devices connected at a given time, and each child has about 10 friends who connect occasionally. That’s 40 devices to keep track of, and many of them have identical names such as “iPhone”.
Eero could substantially improve the content filtering process if they would let users sort the list of connected devices by how recently the devices connected. That would make it much easier to identify the new device after receiving a notification. With the app as it exists today, content filtering is a frustrating experience.
Poor at best
I own an original Eero system purchased directly from Nick in San Francisco. It works very well in a wooden house that is 2 stories and 3500 square feet. I have a base and 5 more units. Coverage is excellent on a 100 meg cable system. This system is five stars
I recently completed the renovation of a structure that I will call a guest house and a studio. All of the ceilings floors and 80% of the walls are pine wood. The guest house in 1400 sq feet and the Studio is 750 Sq feet. In preparation for this installation I purchased a pro pack and a house installation with two beacons. The Base station in the Pro came up with no issues. Standing on its own in the 1400 sq feet it has dead spots and drops. I tried to install the two units from the pro kit and the base could not find them even placed next to each other. Same thing with the two beacons. I tried to enter the units with serial numbers and some luck but poor placement and no luck finding them after that. I started with the original unit from the cable company and have since purchased a NetGear X45. It reads the 200+ megs from the cable company but can not get past the Eero issues. The Nighthawk cable router modem gives good coverage in and around the guest house but barely twenty feet away in the Studio the coverage is spotty. I have just purchased two range extenders that are compatible with the Nighthawk X45 C7800. They will arrive next week and I will give an update then.
Doesn’t even compare to AirPort Extreme
The app is basically an advertisement for Eero Plus. I bought these to replace an AirPort Extreme in 4000 Sqft house with an open floor plan. I thought the mesh should be a good fit. The Extreme was great for tiny apartment with crowded signals in San Francisco but in Dallas I needed something with strong coverage. Went with Eero based on several reviews that said it was better than Google’s. From the moment I hooked it up the throughput was bad. The routers ran hot and even worse the tech support from the company is rude and unhelpful. So a i split between the old AE for apple devices and everything else on Eero. Then they come out with Eero plus if the router was already bad I thought maybe paying the toll may get you better customer service with the company. It didn’t the eero plus feature is half baked and feels intrusive. Honesty, feels like the company is penny pinching every dime. So I had no luck this weekend I contacted auppprt because movies never stream over these erros and I thought maybe I could get it fixed. I was told to run like 10 variations of speed test on different sites and totally blown off. When I told them I finally decided to just purchase a new non eero router their response was “happy Easter”. Hope this helps someone avoid my bad experience with them and spend the money on quality instead of good marketing.
