Imagine a symphony, where your smart home is the orchestra and Wi-Fi is the conductor. To ensure a harmonious performance, your conductor must be robust, with the power to reach every last musician. Enter the Amazon eero 6, a Wi-Fi mesh system ready to breathe new life into your aging Wi-Fi setup, and the maestro your smart home craves.

Dancing with the devices

Your robotic vacuum, vigilant security cameras, and clever smart relays, like the Shelly, are all part of this grand ensemble. These devices yearn for a Wi-Fi connection that extends to every nook and cranny of your home. The Amazon eero 6, armed with Wi-Fi 6, boasts a coverage area of up to 5,000 sq. ft. and Wi-Fi speeds of up to 500 Mbps. This maestro can lead a troupe of over 75 devices, allowing you to bid adieu to connection struggles.

Avoiding Amazon's SideWalk

Now, you might be concerned about Amazon's controversial SideWalk project, but fear not! The eero system lacks the hardware required for SideWalk's functionality. This peculiar project is reserved for Alexa and Ring devices exclusively. So, rest easy knowing your Amazon eero 6 will be a trustworthy leader in your smart home symphony, without any unwanted surprises.
