Eero to Kill WiFi Dead Spots in the Home With it Mesh Network
Ashley Allen / 3 years ago
A San Francisco startup is aiming to banish WiFi dead spots in the home, without using WiFi extenders, with its new product, Eero. Instead of using one single router, Eero uses mesh networking to link a number of smaller devices – according to the company, three should cover the average-sized house – around your home.
The first Eero is connected your existing router or modem, which can then be linked with any further Eero devices placed around the home. Each device contains dual Wi-Fi radios for 2.4GHz and 5GHz connections, Bluetooth 4.0, 1GHz processor, 512MB RAM, and 1GB of storage. The devices can be controlled via Android or iOS app.
Nick Weaver, CEO of Eero, told The Next Web that the project was prompted by the question, “what Wi-Fi system can we design that will provide connectivity to any sized home?”
A pack of three Eero devices cost $299, with one priced at $129.
