Whole home Wi-Fi systems
With the explosion in popularity of network-connected devices (like smartphones, tablets, laptops, Smart TVs, etc.), a good Wi-Fi network is no longer optional. It's now a necessity, in order to provide the copious amounts of wireless data your devices are hungry for.
The traditional Wi-Fi setup includes a standard router and maybe a range extender to get rid of any pesky dead spots, especially if you live in a home that's more than around 2,000 square feet. If you've tried the range extender solution, you might have noticed annoyances like having to manually switch between different networks as you move through your home, or a drop in bandwidth when you're in a room that's far from the router.
Well, you can stop being annoyed because your ideal solution is here: a whole home Wi-Fi system, otherwise known as a mesh network. These systems include multiple nodes, which you can place in different areas throughout your home. These nodes generate a Wi-Fi signal that bathes the entire house in a fast, seamless network. You'll only have one network—no more switching required—and data transfer speeds will be consistently fast no matter what room you're in. You can place nodes in different rooms to eliminate any dead spots, and if you need to extend the network even further you can purchase additional nodes.
Most whole home Wi-Fi systems include a smartphone app that makes it simple to set up, configure, and control the network (with customizable parental controls). Some systems can even suggest the best locations to place nodes in order to create the optimal Wi-Fi experience. As a nice bonus, these nodes feature a clean, attractive design that will fit in nicely with the décor of any room.
