It might sound dramatic to say, but I wouldn’t be here, writing on this blog, if it wasn’t for the incredible opportunity to connect to the internet. I might not have chased my passion for interior design, or discovered bloggers around the world writing, decorating and documenting their lives in personal and unique ways. I wouldn’t have been able to create this platform that connects me with you to share my little thoughts on home design. While sharing a beautifully designed wifi beacon might seem a bit off-topic for TS, the intersection of connectivity and design is certainly at the core of this online space. I definitely consider myself a “digital native,” and experiencing innovation in technology has always excited me. The eero wifi system is a new type of beacon that covers your home in a ‘blanket’ of connection and brings security and convenience to your fingertips with a phone app that lets you track the usage, devices, and latest security updates on your network. It’s also one of the most elegant devices out there. I placed mine directly on my desk and placed two eero Beacons on either end of the house for complete coverage. It was the easiest system I’ve ever installed (and I’ve installed many routers in my time), and I was impressed by the features built into the network. Learn more about the eero after the jump!
eero lets you place beacons throughout the house to extend your coverage wherever you need it – yard included. It uses TrueMesh technology to ensure a consistent connection and no dead spots. You have complete control over the network from your phone, from naming the network to adding guests. You can also set down time to get family members off their devices (say, around dinner time) and view each individual device connected to the network. One of the greatest parts is that this system won’t get dated by new technology (like all of your old routers) – it gets better with regular software updates that bring new features, improve performance, and ensure your security is always up-to-date.
While I try to balance screen time with work that’s off the computer, I rely on my home network to keep me working quickly and efficiently across my blog dashboard, social media networks, and file management in the cloud. And working easily around the house means I can write from the living room or the patio for a fresh workspace and I’m still going to be able to connect just as quickly as on my desk next to my beautiful new beacon. Of course, there’s more to this reliable connection than just my work – movie nights just got easier with no buffering, and we’re all glad to stay connected with friends and family over a fast and secure connection while we’re home.
Wifi is now part of the modern home’s function, and eero is considering it just as carefully as any home appliance by marrying design, convenience, and quality into a beautiful system.
