Partner Account Linking is a way to connect your eero network to other apps and services to share specific information about your account and network for each integration. Partner Account Linking uses OAuth 2.0 to create a single sign-on experience with partners.
Who are the existing partners?
We have two partner integrations at this time, Amazon Alexa and Thread Networking. To learn more about Thread, see this article.
Thread partners at this time:
What information can Thread partners see about my account and network?
Thread device partners will detect a Thread-capable eero network over the local network. In their setup experience, they can prompt you to link your eero account using eero or Amazon login. Once linked, the partner is able to:
- Determine whether Thread is on/off
- Turn Thread on
- Access Thread network information and credentials including the Thread network name, unique identifier, and network passkey
Thread partners cannot see any additional information such as connected non-Thread devices, wifi passwords, or other wifi network and user information.
How can I unlink a partner?
Each partner will provide a simple means to unlink from eero.
You can unlink from Nanoleaf using the below process:
- Open the Nanoleaf app
- Tap “More” in the bottom right
- Tap the cloud icon to go to the Nanoleaf cloud tab
- Tab “Disconnect” on eero under the Connections section
Do I need to link Amazon Alexa if I use Amazon Login or have linked my Amazon account from the eero app?
No. Logging into eero using your Amazon account or linking to Amazon in the eero app replaces needing to link to eero from Alexa. For customers using eero login and not electing to Amazon account link, you would enable the Alexa skill using Partner Account Linking from the eero Alexa Skill here.
