The LED color of your eero router may end up being different than the color used to highlight its icon on the official eero app. So, what do these mismatching color indicators mean? You can find out in this guide at Seeking Tech.
This guide is mainly based on the eero 6, eero 6+, eero Pro 6 and eero Pro 6E. With that said, it should also apply older versions of the eero router as well.
What does it mean when your eero LED is white and its icon has a green outline in the app?
If your eero LED is showing a solid white LED color while its icon has a green outline inside the eero app, then it means that your eero network is working as intended.
The white LED indicates that the eero router is currently functioning. The green outline in the app is a confirmation that the device is ready for use.
What does it mean when your eero LED is white and its icon has a yellow outline in the app?
If you see a white LED light coming from your eero router while its icon has a yellow outline in the app, then this indicate that your device is still going through the configuration or set up process.
This process is done by the device automatically. Therefore, all you have to do is to simply wait until the icon in the eero app turns from yellow to green.
What does it mean when your eero LED is blinking white and its icon is green in the app?
If your eero is blinking a white LED light but the app is showing that is green, then this means that the router is still in the process of booting up.
The boot up process will run on its own; therefore, you simply need to wait for a few minutes for the eero LED light to turn solid white.
What does it mean when your eero LED is red and its icon is green in the app?
