Amazon adds support for the Apple’s HomeKit on Eero Routers

Amazon is dispatching new updates for Eero routers by adding support for Apple HomeKit smart home system. The update will allow Eero mesh routers to integrate Home App, allowing more control over connected accessories.

You need to use Eero iOS App to set up these new features. To do so, open the Discover tab and follow the given instructions. Once you are done with the configuration, you need to remove and re-add the HomeKit products to the Wi-Fi. Apple recommends it for a more secure connection. It is vexatious, but it’s a one-time thing that you must do.

Eero Update: now support Apple's HomeKit

Eero Update and HomeKit Security

Apple’s Home App offers three options to confine internet access for smart home devices. That allows you to have a more secure setup.

HomeKit Security Levels

  • Restrict to Home: devices can only interact with HomeKit via Apple devices. Allowing no access to the internet, meaning you can’t update your firmware.
  • Automatic: default option, that allows HomeKit to have limited internet access, which is recommended by Apple.
  • No Restriction: your devices can interact or communicate with any device in your network or web-based services.

The HomeKit security features are an additional patch to Eero’s security functions. HomeKit is now supported on all Eero, Eero Beacon, and Eero Pro devices with eeroOS 3.18 or later and the new update is available from today.
