Wondering if it's possible to get Circle working on R7900p with adding another device

I've noticed that Circle is included with the Nighthawk models from Netgear.  I've also noticed, unhappily, that my model is not on the list of compatable versions.  Is there any thoughts on a future date where Circle will be included in the firmware?  Is it possible to potentially use the firmware from a similar model without bricking this router? (i.e. r8000p).  As someone that has been involved with the developer end of many devices and softwares, I know this is possible on occasion but not always.  I am NOT looking to increase my cost by buying a Circle Device on top of my current devices, removing this as an option.  Thanks in advance.

Hi @verosity,

 

As it stands the R7900P is not among the devices that support Circle and we do not have visibility on the pipeline of future feature updates. However, this is something that you can have posted on the Idea Exchange board linked below.
