WiFi mesh, or mesh WiFi mesh, is a whole home system. A WiFi mesh system includes a mesh router, modem and mesh units that you place throughout your home. Typically, these mesh systems come with an app so that you can control your entire network from your smartphone or smart device. This page focuses on the difference between Plume and Eero.

 

What is Plume?

Plume is a brand of WiFi mesh system. Plume has an app called HomePass. HomePass lets subscribers optimize, adapt, and add features to their connected home system.

To get the Plume app, you need to have the entire Plume WiFi mesh system. The app syncs with the Plume WiFi mesh pods.

What is Eero?

Amazon owns Eero, which is another brand of WiFi mesh system. Eero also has an app that lets subscribers see what’s happening on their network, identify any issues, set controls and share WiFi with guests. With an added subscription to Eero Secure, subscribers can get added protection to their home.

The difference between Plume & Eero apps

The main difference between Eero and Plume is that Eero optimizes through algorithms local to the devices, while Plume optimizes in the cloud.
