EERO HOME WIFI SYSTEM
In the modern home, we rely on the internet for everything from controlling our lights to streaming movies, placing greater strain on our connections than ever before. A system like the Eero makes sure every room in the house gets fast internet speeds using boosters known as Beacons, so you can easily watch multiple HD video streams at once. Replace your old router with an Eero and add a couple of Beacons for blanket coverage in properties up to 3,000 square feet. It’s an elegant solution to an annoying problem, and you can keep an eye on your network using the accompanying app. $399.
