Eero Mesh WiFi Products Now Available From Apple's Online Store

Eero's lineup of mesh WiFi products are now available for purchase, eero announced in a blog post this morning. Eero devices can be bought from Apple in the United States, Canada, UK, Germany, France, Italy, and Spain.


Apple is selling multiple eero Pro Mesh WiFi setups with one or two beacons and pricing starting at $300, along with the eero Pro Mesh WiFi Router and a Pro Router three pack. The standard Eero Mesh WiFi Router is available alongside the eero Mesh WiFi System and the eero Beacon Mesh WiFi Range Extender. Eero's products are compatible with HomeKit.

This is an exciting step towards delivering our vision to bring eero to more customers and homes around the world, providing them with a safe and reliable network for their smart home. Today's announcement follows eero's support for Apple HomeKit, a key addition to our growing line-up of smart home integrations.

With our TrueMesh technology, your eero network learns and optimizes for your space, devices, and usage. Get fast, reliable wifi to all of the connected devices in your home as you work, game, and stream video in every corner of the house (backyard included).

Apple first began offering router and WiFi options on its website after discontinuing its AirPort products. Apple also sells routers and mesh WiFi systems from Linksys and Netgear, offering both the Velop and the Orbi.

Strongly advise against Eero depending on your needs. After almost 2 years, I eBay'd my Eero system: 4 Eeros + 2 Beacons and bought the new Netgear Orbi RBK852 units (AX6000). The 2 Orbis are flawless in our home w/ 50+ devices. The Eeros required us to frequently toggle wifi off/on on many devices, and speeds were significantly inconsistent through our house. Additionally, certain HomeKit devices would be unresponsive -- this hasn't happened once in the 2 1/2 weeks since we made the switch. The Eeros can work well in certain situations, but if you have a lot of devices and/or a larger home, and/or speeds over 300-500 Mbps from your provider ... it might not work well for you. The wireless backhaul in the later Eeros is a welcome addition, but the beacons don't have this ... and the implementation in general isn't as good as other brands. I was a VERY loyal Eero customer early on and probably sold 5-10 systems by recommending to friends, many of whom are switching to the Orbi AX6000 which - again - are absolutely incredible. Max speed everywhere in the house, HomeKit devices working flawlessly, no device drops. Also, even with the wireless backhaul in later Eeros, still no Wifi 6 and no roadmap for when it might be available. The current Eero offerings are not very future-forward as they once were.

I don’t understand why Apple doesn’t just buy Eero and sell this. People would certainly pay a premium for this and I always found my AirPort Extreme was super reliable and easy to control from my Apple products. Is it just supporting routers is complicated? The cost of the mesh routers seems to suggest Apple could charge a premium.

Because they are owned by Amazon, is why.

Does it support the new WiFi standard ax? I can't find this information on the Apple website.

Edit: Found it on the Eero website, no WiFi 6 support, I would not buy it just because of that:

Quote: eero supports 802.11a/b/g/n/ac. Currently, there is no timeline set for 802.11ax (also known as WiFi 6) support.
