If you’ve already using an eero WiFi mesh network in your home, you probably remember how easy it was to set up and to get your entire family’s WiFi-capable devices online. But what do you do if you want the kids to get offline for a while? As it happens, it’s just as simple to limit your kids’ screen time at will or on a set schedule using eero’s convenient Family Profiles feature.
Time for dinner? One tap in your eero app brings your network to a standstill so you can enjoy an internet-free meal with your family. Time for the kids to focus on homework? Disable online gaming but leave laptops online for research purposes. The free eero app’s Family Profiles give you complete parental control over what devices can be online and when.
If you don’t have an eero WiFi mesh network yet and want to learn more about it, check out our HomeFi℠ blog to see how eero can blanket your whole home in strong, reliable WiFi.
Now, let’s see how easy it is to pause your internet with eero!
NOTE: Each device can only be associated with one profile to avoid pause/schedule conflicts. You may want to associate shared devices, such as your main television, with the person who manages your network.
NOTE: You will need to create a one-device profile to pause internet for a specific device.
After you master eero’s intuitive Family Profiles, you’ll have a powerful addition to your parenting toolbox. Remember, this free feature can be activated, changed, or deactivated at any time, so experiment and discover what works best for your family.
