Eero has made a name for itself in the home Wi-Fi market thanks to its tight focus on delivering consistent performance with one of the easiest setup experiences around. With a tri-band connection and a tiny housing, the Eero Pro is a great value at $139 (30% off) at Amazon. Not only that, but if you have a large house with Wi-Fi dead zones, Eero works great as a mesh. While you can link up multiple Eero Pro routers, you also have the option of using the compact Eero Beacon which is also on sale for $71, a massive 40% off at Amazon.
The Eero Pro has great performance thanks to its tri-band AC2200 connection. Tri-band is essential for the best possible mesh performance because mesh routers need to be able to communicate with one another. Having a dedicated band for the mesh connection allows the system to perform at full speed for devices without giving up any mesh link speed.
The Eero Pro is set up with the Eero app in just a few minutes and kept up to date automatically. You can easily change your Wi-Fi settings from your Android phone and keep an eye on which devices are connected to your network. You can also sign up for Eero Secure which offers antivirus security and VPN protection for an optional monthly fee.
The Eero Beacon looks more like a traditional WI-Fi extender but like any Eero mesh node, it uses the same Wi-Fi name so your devices can automatically switch to the strongest connection. The Beacon is a bit slower with a dual-band connection but its compact size makes it easy to place, even in a hallway. In fact, it’s a great mesh node for an upstairs hallway thanks to a built-in night light. Keep in mind, you’ll need another Eero router, like the Eero Pro, to use it.
If you’re looking to upgrade your house with smart home tech, you’ll need a router with plenty of power and Eero Pro is a good choice, especially is you’re taking advantage of the best smart home Black Friday deals.
Save big on an Eero mesh system with Eero Pro or Eero Beacon
While the Beacon isn’t as fast as the Eero Pro thanks to its dual-band connection, it’s still a great choice for certain situations. First of all, it’s tiny. The Eero Beacon can be tucked in just about anywhere whether it’s behind a desk or in a rarely used hallway outlet. It has more than enough speed for 4K streaming and even work from home calls. If you’re looking for a way to improve your Wi-Fi without running wires or taking up a bunch of space with antenna-laden boxes, Eero Beacon is still a great choice.
