The science behind Siri and Eero integration
With upgrades to Apple's iOS mobile operating system, many household devices such as cameras and routers received full support into the iOS platform. Eero is one of the few who can handle this kind of connectivity reliably.
So, basically, you can command Siri to control all smart home devices in your household. This can only be done if you have accessories with a compatible router. That's where Eero comes in. For example, if you want to turn smart lights on or off in your home just using your voice, Siri can do that.
Here's an ideal real world situation. Let's just say you want to create a "Heading Home" shortcut on your iPhone. When you say the "Heading Home" command to Siri, the voice assistant can automatically do things based on the shortcut you created, such as adjusting the temperature, lights, etc. Eero's advanced WiFi system allows these types of commands to happen.
Just from a design perspective, Eero's router looks like a sleeker, more rounded version of Apple's Airport Express base station. The Eero Pro routers even have Secure features that allow you to essentially firewall off certain attacks to your Eero router like accessing your full home network.
