Eero's whole home WiFi system

Boot Camp feature for Tuesday, July 26, 2016

Eero’s whole home WiFi system.    I’m Fred Fishkin with BootCamp, your Techstination for gadgets and gear.      When it comes to WiFi routers for your home, Eero takes a different approach from the competition.   It uses a base router that plugs into your broadband modem…and then utilizes satellite units around the home…typically two more….to ensure coverage is complete.   CEO and Co-founder Nick Weaver…

“It’s a distributed system.   So you have multiple units.  WiFi is just a radio wave just like light and sound.  So the further you get away from the source of the wave the lower fidelity the signal is.  And so as the speeds in our home of the Internet connections have increased, our home networks haven’t kept up.”

Our testing found Eero eliminated weak spots, set up was simple using a smartphone and if you still have areas that need help…you can solve that by adding additional units.    A package of three costs about five hundred dollars.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.  I’m Fred Fishkin.
