How Can I Identify New Devices on My Network?

There's a few ways that the eero App can help you identify and manage new devices on your network. 

"Blue Dot" Notifications

In the Connected Devices list on the eero App Home page, new devices will show up with a 'blue dot' on their respective device icons to indicate that they're new to the network. 

This will include devices that may have rejoined the network after 7 days, so you may want to add Nicknames to devices or add them to Profiles if these devices will routinely be on your network.

How to Enable Push Notifications for New Devices

As of mobile app version 2.23.2, users have the ability to enable push notifications to inform them when new devices have joined the network. 

To enable push notifications for new devices: 

  1. Open the eero App
  2. Tap on the menu button (upper left)
  3. Tap on Network Settings
  4. Tap on Notifications
  5. Switch the 'New Devices' Toggle to On 

Push notifications can also be enabled by tapping on a device with a blue dot notification from the eero App Home Page or the Connected Devices screen (click here for more detail on viewing devices on your network). 

Tapping on a device marked with a blue dot will cause a pop up to appear at the bottom of the screen asking, "Would you like to be notified when a new device joins your network?". Tap on Notify Me to enable push notifications.
