Home-technology integrators get a “share of the economics” when they add Eero Plus cybersecurity service to Eero mesh-networking solutions.

Eero may be famous for its DIY Wi-Fi mesh networking system, but the company continues to make inroads into the home-tech installation channel.

At CEDIA 2017 Eero is announcing a bundle that includes its Eero Plus cybersecurity service, powered by Zscaler, with the new remote network management platform the company announced recently.

“Today’s bundle announcement is focused on providing a more complete solution for professional installers, that combines the highly requested remote network management feature with a network security offering,” says Eero CEO Nick Weaver.

He says that integrators get a “share of the economics” when they spec the new service, which provides enterprise-grade anti-virus, anti-malware, and anti-phishing technology.

The new network management tool lets pros access their clients’ smart homes to monitor network health and troubleshoot systems remotely.

Recently, Eero announced a PoE adapter kit for ceiling-mount installations, sold only through pro channels.
