Another great Black Friday deal that is going on at Amazon is on the Google WiFi mesh network access points. Right now you can pick up the single unit for $99, a savings a $30. If you need the 3-Pack, you save $50. It is down to $249 today.
The question for most is which one do you need? If you have a home or apartment that is 1500 square feet or less, the single should do the job for you. No need to overbuy but if you have a multi-story home or an older home, it may not give you the coverage you need. That is my case in my mid-70’s home. Over that and up to 4500 square feet, the 3-Pack is what you need for your home. That is also on sale at $269. The nice thing is, if you get a single and add more later, it is easy to add the new ones to the network via the Google WiFi app on your Android phone or iPhone.
Google WiFi has generally been a big success for Google and is aimed at making networking at home simple. The units create a mesh network, giving you seamless coverage throughout your home. The app that controls them allows you to pause the network for devices (think pausing the kids devices at dinner time) and network performance testing built in. As I posted a couple of weeks ago, if you are a bit more network savvy, IPv6 is now supported too.
All you need to set it up is the Google WiFi app which is a free download from the Play Store and the App Store for iOS.
