The Eero devices come with a user-friendly, high-performance “Eero” app. This app is available on both iOS and Android devices and has a great interface that you can navigate easily even if you’ve never used it before.
To add/remove an Eero device from the network, you’ll need to download this app.

It features two categories: “Currently Connected” and “Recently Connected.” You can select a device and learn its MAC address, nickname, data usage and more.
The second step on how to remove Eero devices from the network is to log in your credentials after a successful download.

Once your account is verified, you can log in to your “Eero” app. To do that, open your mobile app and enter your username and password.

Once you are in the Eero mobile app, you get a user friendly interface. To remove a device, you first need to add an Eero to your network.
When you have Eero connected to your network, follow these steps to begin the device removal process:
- Launch “Eero” app

- Click on the “Remove Device” option
- Select “Remove from Network”
- Tap on “Confirm”
That’s it. Once you press “confirm,” your selected device will be removed from the Eero mesh router.
If you are wondering how to remove Eero from the previous network, you can use this method to remove your gadget from a previous network.
Note: Keep in mind that if you remove your main device from the mesh router, the entire network will be terminated.
However, removing an Eero from the network will only reduce the coverage of your internet.
Eero network allows you to connect unlimited Eero devices, which means there is no known limit to the number of devices.
However, you should know that more devices are not always a good thing.
It would be best to use a single Eero for at least 1,000 square feet but you can use more under some special circumstances.
The simple answer is, NO. The Eero Beacons only connect with other Eero devices.
To use an Eero Beacon on your network, you’ll need to use the “Eero” mobile app as well as a gateway Eero that has an active connection to an upstream device.
Eero devices feature numerous LED lights, including red, white, yellow, blue and green.
In case you are getting a solid red light on your Eero, it means you don’t have an active internet connection.
Thus, to remove Eero from your network, all you have to do is launch the “Eero” app and select the device you don’t want anymore.
Once you find your desired device, tap on “Advanced” and “Remove Device” to remove Eero from your network permanently.
