Should the HomeKit router in your home application group devices by brand / device type or show each device individually?

Cupertino, November 6, 2021

I just installed an eero pro 6 and activated the HomeKit router functionality. When I opened the Apple Home app and went to the Wi-Fi network and routers, I found that my accessories were categorized by brand / device type. What I thought I would see is each individual homekit device. It seems that I can only control network security at the manufacturing level / device type. For example, I have many Meros outlets throughout my home. Looks like I could control security for all my Meross outlets together. I can't see each socket independently and so I control the security for each socket independently. Is that what others see? Is that how it should work? Thank you very much for your help!
