@rdardour That's awesome! I think you're right!

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).
Spencer Mitchell@that1guyspencer · Sr. Solutions Engineer, Sactech
@nsweaves Awesome. I think it's a great idea to bring enterprise-class capabilities to the consumer, especially if it is simple and straight forward. You mention mesh. Are there any algorithms similar to products in the enterprise that help control sticky clients and roaming? Are there any load balancing capabilities that force clients to connect to different APs so that they all aren't staying connected to the same one? My assumption is that the APs auto tune power and channel so that the cells aren't interfering. I'm thinking something similar to Aruba's Client Match technology. Sorry for all the questions, I literally sell/design large wifi deployments every day so this is very interesting to me.

@that1guyspencer Those are precisely the features we're starting to push down into a consumer product. The big change is we're using our networks at home very differently than we have before. We have HD video streaming everywhere and so many devices connecting that most homes need something MUCH better than what's currently available in the consumer market.
Spencer Mitchell@that1guyspencer · Sr. Solutions Engineer, Sactech
@nsweaves I agree! Super cool spin on wireless technology. I wouldn't be surprised if you eventually see customers deploying this in smb environments, especially if the product includes firewall features for securing the perimeter. Best of luck!

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 :)
