How to change icons used by eero….
Formerly titled: Eero router – Nicknames and icons
UPDATE: Finally!!!! The most recent update to the eero now allows you to specify icons from their library. And it’s a GOOD library – thank you. Finally!
Click on Connected devices and every device connected to your network is displayed. The eero app identifies the manufacturer and, with some devices, even the name of a given device. The eero app may also show an icon that represents its use.
Some of the more obvious icons are those for phones, laptops and TVs. Unfortunately, the majority of devices get a fairly generic “wifi” icon.
But you can change this. Give devices a nickname using certain key words and the icon will change.
(Note: once you give a device a nickname, I haven’t found a way of getting rid of it).
Unfortunately, the list is fairly limited. Other eero users want to know how to customize the icons or at least identify them better. While I can appreciate it’s difficult to appease everyone, it would be nice if some of the more common omissions were addressed. Most people using an eero likely have a thermostat, security cameras , door locks, doorbells (maybe even blinds would be nice).
Eero hasn’t published (at least as far I know) the list of keywords that trigger the icon association so until there is one OR an app update lets us customize the icons, here are the icons I’ve noticed.
If you’ve noticed more, please tell me in the comment section.
