I’m going to set up a second network at home to isolate my IoT devices.
Sadly, my eero pro doesn’t yet support VLAN (supposedly on the list for future FW update). Aside from that I really like it and don’t want to replace it, so I’ll be adding a second router behind my eero pro (LAN to WAN) using a different IP segment to provide the isolated network for my IoT devices (SmartThings hub, Hue, Bond, Nest, Ring, Android TV, Google Home, etc.).
Wondering who else has done this, and if you have any advice/suggestions/learnings, etc. I assume that I’ll still be able to communicate w/my IoT devices via the internet when I’m at home on my current Wi-Fi network (just as I communicate over the Internet when I’m away from home on 4G). So I won’t have to keep switching networks to manage my IoT network/devices.
Appreciate any suggestions/ideas, including a resonably fast/recent router hopefully at around $100 to use for the IoT network…
