Hilarious @nsweaves. Great product @rdardour. Kudos.
So what makes this product different to say buying a router and a wireless extender? Is the idea that their app helps you set up the product effectively and automatically diagnose the network?
Edit: looks like the mesh is only btwn routers, not your other devices as well
@the_jozen_one Hi Julian, Nick Weaver, eero CEO here. With range extenders you typically have two major problems: slow speeds and multiple network names. With eero, we have two radios so your network is fast and reliable. And because we have a true mesh network you have one single WiFI network name that blankets every corner of your home.

@nsweaves Awesome. I was dealing with this problem just a few weeks ago. I couldn't find anything on the market that could solve my problem effectively and most things were garbage. Best of luck.
@nsweaves Hi Nick, where can I find specs on the actual radios in use within the hardware? Are they 3x3:3 MIMO? I couldn't find specifics on your site and was just curious. I deploy this type of tech all the time in the enterprise so I wanted to see how things compare from a radio perspective.
@that1guyspencer We use 2 x 2 MIMO radios, as the fast majority of clients are 2 x 2 (if anything).
This looks cool, but the preorder program puts me off. With a vague "summer" ship date and wanting my money up front it sounds like a Kickstarter project a little bit.
@ow Hi Owen, because a lot of the components have multi-month lead times, doing a pre-order is really helpful to forecast demand and help us plan properly. We're live in a number of homes through the Bay Area and are pushing hard to get as many devices into customer hands as soon as we can.
I love the look of the device, but I am most excited about having a great interface to manage my wifi network--setup, one-tap guest access, etc--and the ability to stream content anywhere in my apartment.
So, that's not a connected blanket? More seriously, I wouldn't need something like that in my apartment because it's so tiny that my WiFi is reliable everywhere, even in the street, but I'm really impressed by how eero's mesh network works. Pretty interesting: would buy (if I had a big house)
@syswarren Hey Julie, an eero works great as a single device too! It's easy to grant network access to your friends and it updates itself automatically so you have the latest features and security fixes. The best part, you can start with one and expand if your next place has a little more room :)
@nsweaves I really like the easy access feature, just for that and the lovely design of the box I'd love to have one. Will have to wait for European shipping or moving to the US :)
