A whole-home WiFi system, or mesh WiFi system, covers every room in your home with solid WiFi so you don’t hit any dead spots. Mesh WiFi says No to connection frustrations and Yes to improved WiFi.
Think of it like this:
In a room full of people all talking at once, it’s hard for anyone to be heard. Where one voice might be louder, another is being snuffed out. Some voice not even heard at all.
The same goes for the many devices in your home connecting wirelessly to the Internet all at once. Heavier bandwidth devices are like the louder voices taking up all the space, of connection in this scenario. Leaving other devices to not connect at all or take a long time to connect.
And device congestion isn’t the only obstacle. Simple things like floors, doors, walls, metal, brick, concrete, and distance can interfere with your WiFi signal.
A whole-home mesh WiFi system eliminates all the issues and frustrations above.
How Mesh Systems Work
A mesh system works with your home design. Whereas a traditional router must be placed in just the right space, the nodes in a mesh kit go where you want and need them, and they bring the WiFi signal there. No fussing around with placement.
Mesh nodes can go in every room in the house. They often come in a sleek design that blends into the environment and reduces clutter. This way you can move freely through your home without a second thought whether you will have connection or not.
Setting Up a Whole-Home System
“Whole-home system” sounds complex, but the set-up process is incredibly easy. It’s as simple as getting your mesh router plugged in and powered on, placing the nodes in each room, and configuring your setting and features.
Most mesh systems use a mobile app and guide you through the entire set up, including configurations, and even recommended placements for the nodes in your home for optimal coverage. Most mesh systems also include features in the app like Parental Controls, device prioritization, guest access, password and network management and more.
