Amazon eero mesh Wi-Fi 6 routers are on sale as the countdown to the October Prime event continues, with the HomeKit-compatible devices discounted by up to 35% off.
The eero products double as a Zigbee smart home hub, and they can be connected to Amazon’s Alexa assistant for even more smarts. Mesh networking technology offers coverage for large spaces and promises fast speeds for devices.
For example, the eero 6 three-pack router system provides up to 4,500 square feet of coverage and supports Wi-Fi speeds up to 500 Mbps when all three routers are used for the network.
Meanwhile, the three-pack of eero Pro tri-band routers provide up to 6,000 square feet of coverage with Wi-Fi speeds up to 1 Gbps. Amazon uses a technology called TrueMesh that intelligently routes traffic to reduce drop-offs, handling 4K videos, video conferences, and gaming with ease.
Wi-Fi 6, the successor of the 802.11ac Wi-Fi protocol, can support as many as 75 connected devices, making these routers perfect for large households and small businesses.
