One frequent problem my customers have is getting WiFi in every corner of their home. In the past I’ve recommended various solutions–Apple AirPort, Verizon Extenders, and some others. Every one of these solutions had major compromises or varying levels of reliability. A couple of years ago “mesh” networks started appearing on the market promising to solve these problems, all with some amount of success. But then I got my hands on the second gen Eero and I was blown away. So much so that I now keep a small inventory of them so I can instantly fix WiFi for a customer.
Just to be clear, this is not a paid advertisement. I’m writing this simply because it’s a product I believe in and I want to find solutions for my customers. It just works.
I could go on and on about how great Eero is but I don’t want to bore you with a long technical article you won’t read. Suffice it to say, the radios are powerful, the pieces coordinate to create a single WiFi network that blankets your whole house, and automatic updates are released nearly monthly to add features or improve reliability and performance. If I do the initial setup it even allows me to log in remotely and see your current network status or make changes if you are having problems. Oh, and it’s pretty enough to leave out in plain view where the signal will be best.
The homes I’ve installed Eero in range from my own apartment where a single Eero without extensions is faster than my AirPort Extreme, to a 6,500 ft² home where an Eero and two beacons solved WiFi problems that more expensive and complex systems had trouble with.
If you need better WiFi I guarantee this will be the solution. And by that I mean if I sell you Eero (don’t get one from elsewhere) and you aren’t impressed you can return it and I’ll refund parts and labor. But the cost of course is probably the sticking point for many. Prices start at $200 and each extension adds $100 to $180 depending on your specific needs. Most systems take me 30 minutes to an hour to install and fully test. So an average sized home is around $500 to $600 for parts and labor. It’s pricy, but as the saying goes you get what you pay for.
If you want to discuss installing Eero send me a message. Or if you know this is what you need go ahead and book a two hour appointment. We probably won’t need all of that time but I’d rather overbook than underbook. Just a reminder, I’m still not taking on new clients so if we have not had an appointment in the past you can sign up for my wait-list.
