Video Doorbell connects to furthest mesh device

I have an EERO mesh network setup, but the doorbell connects to the device nearly 50 feet away, rather than the one less than 5 feet away.  This makes for a very weak internet connection and the doorbell regularly loses connection.  It also fails to record videos due to the weak signal.  Tech support for EERO tells me the device (doorbell) decides which device to use for its connection.  

Is there a way for force SimpliSafe device to use a specific access point?

I have Google mesh. Candidly the way I fixed all my issues is use a dedicated repeater off the mesh network.
