But the bottom line is that as confusing as it can be, you actually have a great selection of products to choose from. If you are shopping for somebody who can never have enough gadgets, then read on to see what we know are some of the top picks this year.  


Home WiFi System by Eero

The Gift

The Eero Wifi system is revolutionizing the way WiFi connections work in your home and in buildings! We all have issues with our WiFi connections from time to time. Certain areas of the home seem to be better hot-spots than others. But with Eero, those little annoyances will be a thing of the past. Eero allows your WiFi setup and connection to be as unique as the layout of your own home!

Those usual dead zones in your house caused by brick walls, furniture, large appliances, staircases, proximity to your neighbors home, etc., will no longer affect the strength and reliability of your WiFi, because Eero allows you to uniquely customize and expand the range in your home. A set of 3 Eero WiFi units can cover a 2,000 to 4,000 sq. ft. home with ease!

Features to Love

  • Sets up easily, within minutes
  • Control Eero from an easy to use app on your smartphone

Brand

The geniuses behind Eero noticed the trend that everything in our 21st century homes have been coming online… washers, dryers, lighting systems, alarm systems, televisions, speakers, even our front doors. Most, if not all, of these things requires a WiFi source, yet, there have been no great advances in WiFi ranges. They are tech hungry users just like the rest of us that got sick of annoyingly long setup times, dead zones, forgetting passwords, and having to hide all sorts of network and WiFi equipment under desks or in closets. Now with Eero, those issues are a thing of the past.
