This year Amazon announced the Eero 6 and Eero Pro 6. Both of the models support the latest and fastest WiFi standard WiFi 6. A single Eero 6 will set you back $129, while a standalone Eero Pro 6 will cost $229.
Mesh WiFi networks employ a single main router and one or more additional nodes to ensure your entire home has strong, consistent coverage. Eero’s latest routers can connect to 75 devices simultaneously. They can also double as Zigbee smart home hubs, so you don’t need to get a separate hub to manage your Zigbee-compatible devices. As with all of Eero’s other routers, Amazon says setup is as easy as using the Eero app to configure everything.
Eero 6 will provide you with fifteen hundred square feet of wireless coverage. Adding Eero’s new WiFi extender to the mix, which comes included in the two and three packs the company plans to sell, will extend your coverage to three thousand square feet. With a single Eero 6 and two extenders, you can get five thousand square feet of coverage.
The Pro 6, meanwhile, can cover 2,000 square feet on its own, with two and three Pro 6 units working together to extend your coverage to 3,500 and 6,000 square feet, respectively. Outfitting your entire home with an Eero 6 network won’t be too expensive with the three-pack topping out at $279. Unfortunately, you can’t say the same about the tri-band Pro 6, with its two- and three-packs costing $399 and $599. Both models are available to pre-order on Amazon, with retail availability scheduled for later in the year.
