The best wifi system I've ever used
We were considering Google's new wifi system, but on the advice of a colleague who is an IT expert, we chose eero instead. We made the right decision. eero is awesome. Setup is super easy, and it's by far the most reliable and most stable wifi system I have ever used. My application is a two story house at roughly 2,000 square feet, and roughly a dozen devices, with a regular flow of guests. After a couple of months I haven't once had a dead spot, freeze, dropped connection, etc. I had those regularly with my old Netgear wifi router. The eero matrix makes wifi more widely available throughout the entire house, as well as outside on my deck where I need it to sync to my golf flight monitor.
Another issue that eero has fixed for me is the chronic issues my iOS devices had connecting to my previous Netgear network. Most iOS devices, including at least one iPhone and two iPads, constantly disconnected from our network. The only way to reconnect was to reenter the wifi network name and password every time. With eero we have never had a device drop off the network. The device management features allows you to block devices from the network or reenable them at a tap of the screen. Sharing the guest network is a breeze through sms, email or scanning the QR code.
Making changes to the network is incredibly easy. Renaming the network, changing the password, etc. are trivial through the app. Doing those things on a typical wifi network can be an incredibly frustrating experience. Admin with eero is like it's portrayed in sci-fi movies, you can walk around the house tapping settings on your phone without even having to put down your cocktail.
Family profiles allow you to pause the network for specific devices at specific times, potentially useful as our little brats get older and will eventually start to use the network.
I haven't delved into the advanced network settings, but it looks like there's enough detail and features to satisfy even moderately complex network needs. This system is so good I'm considering using it at my business as well.
Thank you eero for making wifi a pleasure to use. This is the Apple of wifi systems, it just works. All the time.Read full review
