eero M010201 Home WiFi System (1 eero + 1 eero Beacon): The eero
M010201 Home WiFi System comes with one eero and one eero Beacon that blanket
your one to two bedroom home in fast, reliable WiFi
for seamless coverage. Rather than connecting various wireless networking
products to your existing router, a eero Home WiFi System can replace all of
your existing networking hardware except for your modem. eero
stays new and gets better with frequent software updates, improving performance,
while also bringing new features and security improvements. It's simple to setup
and easy to manage. With a network that expands as far as you need, you'll
finally be able to stream, work, and play, from every corner of your home - even
from the backyard too.
- eero doesn't replace your modem, it replaces your router. The first
eero plugs into your existing cable or DSL modem. If you have a combination
modem/router, you'll be using that as a modem and disabling the routing function
by putting it in bridge mode.
- In order to use eero, you will still need to have an Internet
Service Provider (ISP). eero works with all ISPs in the United States
- This is a 2nd Generation eero system. If you already have a
1st-generation eero, you can add 2nd-generation eeros or eero
Beacons to your network.
Flexible Design: Every home is unique, and eero is designed to be
flexible so that it can be a fit for any home. Generally, the number of eeros
recommended & needed is one eero for every 1,000 square feet to provide coverage
throughout your entire home or simply based on the number of bedrooms and/or
floors in your home. You can add as many eeros or eero Beacons to your home &
modem as you'd like.
- Small Homes & Apartments: Since 1-2 eeros are
recommended per floor, in these home settings, a great fit would be the eero
M010201. This set includes one eero, which will replace your existing
router and connect directly to your modem, and an eero Beacon to be placed
at another spot in your home to help blanket your home in fast, reliable
- Most Homes: If you have a home that has two or more floors, you
will likely see best results from the eero
M10301. Again, the eero will replace your existing router and connect
directly to your modem, while the two eero Beacons can be placed throughout
your home to deliver the best-connected home experience.
- Larger & Wired Homes: If have a larger home (more than 3 floors)
or your home is wired for Ethernet, the best fit is the eero
B010301 Pro WiFi System. This set includes three high-powered eeros,
each of which features a tri-band radio and two Ethernet ports. The eero
Pro WiFi System is also a great fit if you just really want the ultimate in
overall network performance.
- When figuring out the optimal number of eeros for your home, take
your home's layout into consideration. This includes length, number of
rooms, and any potential interference-inducing obstacles like brick
walls, large appliance or metal doors.
- eero's range may vary based on characteristics of your home
including, but not limited to, its building materials, layout, interference, and
Processor, Memory, & Storage: The eero M010201 Home WiFi System is
outfitted with a 700 MHz quad-core processor, 512MB RAM, and 4GB flash storage.
TrueMesh Technology: The eero Home WiFi System uses TrueMesh
technology to ensure your traffic is always moving efficiently throughout your
network. This means your devices stay connected no matter where you are at home
while getting the necessary speeds to deliver the same great experience. eero
and every eero Beacon act as an access point on your home network and function
together as a self-sufficient WiFi system. This means that eero Beacons can talk
with both eeros and eero Beacons. Whereas with a range extender, it can only
communicate with your router, making its expandability limited to the range of
- Unlike the familiar router-to-range extender
network configuration, eero employs TrueMesh technology that uses multiple
access points to provide your home with fast, reliable coverage all on a single
- TrueMesh technology knows the signal strength between each eero & eero
Beacon in your home
and calculates the best path from your device to the internet. If there's a
disruption on any part of your network, TrueMesh dynamically reroutes traffic to keep it perfectly balanced.
All this happens in the background so you don't notice a thing.
WiFi Technologies: The eero Home WiFi System incorporates
advanced WiFi technologies like Tri-Band, 802.11ac, MU-MIMO, & Beamforming.
- Tri-Band: With tri-band (2.4/5.2/5.8 GHz), the
eero has an additional 5Ghz radio, meaning more of your devices can connect and
get the fastest possible speeds (the eero Beacon is only Dual-Band
[2.4/5.2GHz]). The eero Home WiFi System's max rated transmit speeds are approximately 240Mbps at 2.4GHz and
approximately 600Mpbs at 5GHz. One eero system can support up to 128 devices. However, if those devices
are heavily using the Internet for activities like streaming video, you'll
probably see best results using up to 30 devices with a eero system.
- 802.11ac: 802.11ac WiFi delivers exceptional speed and
performance, and is 3x faster than Wireless-N. The eero system supports the
following WiFi standards - 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g, 802.11n, and 802.11ac.
- MU-MIMO: MU-MIMO (Multi-User, Multiple-Input,
Multiple-Output) is the latest advancement towards uninterrupted,
simultaneous WiFi connections. Devices such as 4K TVs, HD streaming media
players, tablets, game consoles, and many more use a lot of bandwidth, and
with MU-MIMO (Multi-User, Multiple-Input, Multiple-Output) technology, the
eero system sends WiFi to multiple devices at the same time and same speed.
Your whole family can play, stream, and work at once, without experiencing
lag or buffering--at up to 2x the speed of a non-MU-MIMO router.
- Beamforming: Beamforming technology helps improve the
quality of voice, streaming of video and other bandwidth and latency
sensitive transmissions. Beamforming will direct WiFi signals to each of
your mobile devices to increase signal strength and coverage. Play video
games, listen to music, check emails, shop online, stream HD movies, and
more, without having to worry about dropped signals.
Dual Gigabit Ethernet Ports: As the gateway of an eero WiFi system,
the eero has two auto-detecting Ethernet Gigabit ports. One connects directly to
the modem and the other port provides the option to hardwire devices like an
Ethernet switch, printer, or video game console. The eero Beacon do contain
eero App: The eero app (for
Apple iOS 9.3+ and
Android OS 4.3+) allows you to easily set up (in less than 10 minutes) and
manage your eero WiFi system from your Apple iOS or Android device. You'll be
able to view and manage your eero network from anywhere with a network or
cellular connection. You'll also be able to easily and securely share your
network with guests, or block devices from using your network. In addition, you
can schedule or pause internet access to manage screen time. The eero app even
offers automatic updates with new features, performance improvements, and the
latest security standards for your eero system. The eero app automatically runs
a speed test once per day; the results of the latest test can be found at the
bottom of the app's home page.
Amazon Alexa Compatible: Control your eero WiFi network with the power
of your voice using Amazon Alexa and the eero skill-set. After installing an
Alexa product (including the
Echo Dot, Tap and
Echo Show) on your eero network, you can ask Alexa to perform various tasks
without needing to open the eero app on your Apple iOS or Android device.

Safe & Secure Connection: eero systems use Transport Layer Security
(TLS) and WPA2 encryption to maintain a secure connection between your eeros,
devices, and the cloud. You'll receive a single-use code via text message to
gain administrative access to your network and ensure secure setup. Every
component of the eero system uses best-in-class encryption and security
protocols to keep your network and data secure. Regular audits of the entire
eero infrastructure are run by 3rd-party security firms, and eero works with the
global research community to find and fix security issues.

Mounting & Placement Options: Your gateway eero, the one
that connects to your modem via Ethernet, should ideally be centrally located in
your home (if possible) on a surface that is both stable and flat - such as
tables, countertops, and nightstands. The eero Beacon simply plugs into a wall outlet to
easily expand coverage in the home. The eero Home WiFi System is not waterproof
or water resistant. However, by placing an eero closer to
outdoor areas (but still inside), you can get great coverage across your outdoor space.
