Yes, they are all interchangeable. As simple as remove the old unit from the Eero app, unplug the old one, plug in the new one, then add the new unit in the Eero app. 1-2 minutes tops.

Expanding the mesh is also as simple as plugging in the new unit centrally located in the area you want to expand the wifi coverage, and adding it in the Eero app.

While these might be good, the fact that basic controls are behind a subscription really rubs me the wrong way

For reference, I bought the Eero5, 3-pack when it was on sale back in May for $237

Works great, extends my WiFi throughout the house and parts of my backyard.

This might be (correct me if I'm wrong) the first time the Pro 6's have been on sale.

Subscription ? As in a monthly fee? I’ll have to look into this before purchasing.

Im having spotty internet in parts of my house. With Rogers ignite internet and they said I can get free beacon extenders (not sure what brand they are). Going to try them out but wondering if I should jump on this sale and pay out of my own pocket for what I believe is the best mesh brand/system out there...

Basic controls are not behind a subscription.

Advanced security options are though - though they’re presented in a manner that I don’t think I’ve seen on any other router? Please correct me if I’m wrong.

In general I do hate how some of these things are becoming subscription based. But as long as they do keep improving and updating that’s always nice.

They’ve split it into two levels now I see.

Also, in all honesty, I’ve been using these (and loving them) for years, and have never felt the need to purchase the additional security stuff. Any of the usual router settings are all accessible.

I currently try eero secure for one year at $19.99 (50% off)

Eero sent me a promo code during my one month trial of eero secure

I probably won’t renew, it’s supposed to block ads and it counts that it blocks thousands of ads a week…. But I don’t notice much difference since I have an ad blocker on most browsers I use

I run Pi-hole on a raspi 4 so most of the features covered by Eero secure are already covered so I don’t find any compelling reason to get the subscription.

As mentioned before basic router functions are not being a subscription paywall including the ability to pause wifi using Alexa on an individual or group of devices basis which is great at dinner time with the kids.

If you want ad-blocking that eero secure offers, you can use pi-hole on a raspberry pi. You can google a reddit thread on how to set it up with an existing eero router setup.

Rogers used to give out Eeros for this. Bell gave out Plume pods. Rogers has now also switched to giving out Plume pods.

On paper, their specs look nearly identical. The Plume pods are also more discrete.

But these Plume pods have atrocious performance compared to Eero 5 pros. If your Internet is above 100Mbps then you will hate them.

But Eero's biggest benefit is the stability. Rock-solid performance. If you want more advanced controls then run it in bridge mode.

I have an eero 5 and if you're looking for a way to block ads on all of your devices, you should consider these two options:

1. Install uBlock Origin + EasyList on the computers that you're using. This is completely free.
2. Change the default DNS on your eero to NextDNS (https://nextdns.io). This is also for free.
