How to Set Parental Controls on an eero Pro Router

Introduction

Your Eero router gives you the power to enable WiFi parental controls. This is done by way of Family Profiles. Profiles can be set up for individual family members, or for individual or groups of devices. You can then set up schedules for internet access on each profile, or pause access entirely if you want those devices completely off the grid. This guide will demonstrate how to configure these parental controls using the Eero app. 
Before You Begin:
Your Router must already be set up.
You must have the Eero app installed.
