What Is Eero WiFi?
Eero is an Amazon-owned brand that has pushed out two generations of mesh WiFi nodes. Eero hardware relies on a "router and satellites" model. It also requires constant connectivity to the Eero cloud — ostensibly for analytics reasons. What's more, you have to create an Eero account to use it.
There appears to be some oddities with this account system, though. Amazon Alexa integration allows you to pause internet connections for a group of devices — a handy trick if you want to limit your kids' internet time. Unfortunately, Alexa can't turn the internet back on. For that, you'll need the Eero app.
What Do the Eero Reviews Say?
Eero has consistently updated their products, and this mesh WiFi system has been lauded for its powerful network controls. However, some reviews say the coverage area and speeds can be lacking. The price of Eero leaves a lot to be desired, too. You'll pay $399 MSRP for one base station and two Eero Beacons.
