eero Home White Wi-Fi System - A010101
No more buffering. No more dead zones.
eero is the world's first home WiFi system. A set of three eeros covers the typical home. They work in perfect unison to deliver hyper-fast, super-stable WiFi to every square foot of your house. It's simple to set up. Easy to manage. And gets better over time with new features and improved performance. Stream video, get work done, or swipe right in any room — not just next to your router. Finally. WiFi that actually works.
The one-router model isn't working
Relying on a single router is like asking a loud speaker in your living room to provide great sound throughout your home. It's simple physics: WiFi waves don't go through walls well and have an even harder time climbing stairs. Ever tried to stream a show from your bedroom when your router's in the office downstairs? It's a buffering nightmare.
To solve this, you need multiple access points — devices that broadcast WiFi — distributed throughout your home. That's what you'll find in office buildings, both big and small. But these solutions are out of reach for most of us, and all we're left with is a band-aid solution: range "extenders," which don't live up to their name.
It takes a system
- With eero, you simply plug one device into your modem. Additional eeros simply need power from a standard outlet. They automatically connect to each other to create a single wireless mesh network that covers your whole home. If you already have Ethernet wiring, you can always choose to hardwire your additional eeros.
Three eeros cover the typical home. You can start with one and eero-up depending on the size of your space. You already pay for high-speed Internet — isn't it time to get what you've paid for in every corner of your home?
Plug one eero into your modem and the app will help you place the others throughout your home. You can name your network anything you want. Anything.
Security that's one step ahead
eero automatically downloads the latest security updates to keep your network secure. You don't need to lift a finger.
Feel free to overshare
Easily grant access to friends and family or share a separate guest network with them. No need to dig through the kitchen drawer for your WiFi password.
Stays new, gets better
Automatic software updates that bring new features happen overnight and only take a minute. That means your eero system gets better with time.
WiFi in the palm of your hand
Manage your entire WiFi network from a simple, intuitive app. See which devices are connected and the speeds you're clocking.
Manage screen time
With just a few taps you can create Family Profiles, manage schedules for internet access, or pause the internet.
- Your WiFi problems, gone
WiFi setup is the worst. You know it. We know it. With eero, simply download the app and plug one eero directly into your existing cable or DSL modem. The app takes it from there, prompting you to create a network name and password. Personality encouraged. Additional eeros just need power from a wall outlet. The app will help guide you where to place them to maximize their connection. You can add as many as you need to cover your home. They automatically connect to each other wirelessly. If you have Ethernet wiring, you can hardwire some or all of your eeros. eero's software will automatically figure out whether to send data over Ethernet or through the air
- WiFi is no longer a black box
The eero app lets you manage your network from the palm of your hand, so you'll know how many devices are connected and the Internet speed you're getting from your ISP. The app also allows you to configure advanced settings like DHCP, NAT, DNS, UPnP, Port Forwarding, and flux capacitation
- Security that's one step ahead
It may be out-of-sight, out-of-mind once you set it up, but think about the personal data transmitted over your network. eero is protected with state-of-the-art WPA2 encryption, and because it controls the hardware and the software for your entire network, it ensures that you're always secure. Since traditional routers don't push software updates to their customers, they are left vulnerable to cyber attacks. eero updates automatically so that you not only have the latest features, but the latest security
- Never reset your router again
The mysterious silver bullet to many a WiFi woe is to unplug your router, then plug it back in. It's like blowing on a Nintendo cartridge: a not-so-modern trick. eero regularly runs checkups so your network is always at its best. In the unlikely event that there's an issue, your system can automatically reboot an individual eero (or multiple eeros) to fix the problem
- Be our guest
Digging through the kitchen drawer and rattling off a 16-digit alphanumeric password from an old Post-it note is crazy. With eero, you invite your friends to join your network straight from the eero app — it can be as simple as sending a text. Plus, you can create an entirely separate guest network with the push of a button. Sure, they're your friends, but every relationship needs boundaries
- More family time, less screen time
Parental controls shouldn't be one-size-fits-all: they should be tailored to each individual's age and specific needs. With Family Profiles, manage your family's screen time by creating profiles, setting schedules, managing devices, and pausing the internet for bedtime or important family moments like dinner. Now, the only thing standing between you and a great family game night is your family
- It's all included. Even the future.
eero comes with more memory and power than currently needed to zap WiFi to every corner of your home. That makes it possible to add features and improve performance over time just by pushing an update from the cloud
- Rate vs. range
Distance may be good for the heart, but it weakens WiFi signal. Same goes for walls, doors, appliances, neighbors' networks, metal, water (water heaters and fish tanks alike), dogs, anything solid. When you and your router are at opposite ends of your house, there are too many obstacles in between. Your WiFi signal simply can't make it that far. Electromagnetic waves have different shapes and behaviors at different frequencies. In general, lower-frequency waves like AM radio can travel much farther than higher-frequency waves like light. That's why the 5 GHz waves used by the newest WiFi standard (802.11ac), though capable of transmitting more data at higher speeds, aren't as effective over longer distances as the older 2.4 GHz standard
- The only answer is multiple access points
For fast, reliable WiFi in every room, you need a set of access points — devices that broadcast WiFi — distributed throughout your home. That's why WiFi is so great at work: if you lifted up the ceiling tiles, you'd see access points throughout the office. These enterprise systems are typically wired and linked to a rack of WiFi equipment in an IT closet that makes sure your laptop talks to the right access point and maintains a solid, reliable connection. There's an IT person to manage everything. Until now, recreating this sort of enterprise setup at home has meant expensive Ethernet wiring, painful manual setup, custom firmware, and a network engineer. eero brings this enterprise model to the home. Multiple eeros connect to form a mesh network — the first available on the consumer market. Unlike the "hub-and-spoke" model of a single router and a range extender, each eero in the network is created equal and the result is an incredibly fast, resilient network
- Mad hops
If you've ever tried to give your router a boost with an "extender," then you've experienced true disappointment. That's because "extenders" can only stretch your signal a single hop — you can't connect multiple in a row. They often create an entirely separate network (SSID), so you find yourself having to continually switch from one network to the other as you move through your house. Worse, many range "extenders" cut your bandwidth in half because they rely on a single wireless radio to both send and receive data. In contrast, each eero has two radios — both of which communicate with your devices and sync with other eeros — so your connection is always fast. Not only does an eero system operate on a single network name (SSID), but you can also walk throughout your home and devices like your iPhone will connect to the nearest eero
- Under the hood
We designed eero with an incredible attention to detail. It's engineered from the ground up to achieve the best performance with the smallest footprint possible. That means fitting a powerful dual-core 1 GHz CPU, two state-of-the-art 802.11ac WiFi radios, and 5 antennas into a beautiful enclosure that you can hold in the palm of your hand
