This Eero Pro WiFi system (opens in new tab) comes with three eeros and is down to $439.99 on Amazon. This is eero's newest package, having only been released in June and has never dropped below $500 on Amazon in that time. A couple other retailers have matched, or come close to matching, this price including B&H (opens in new tab) and Newegg (opens in new tab).
The Eero is a mesh networking system, which seem to be all the rage these days. It's a great system if you live in a large house, especially when your router is inevitably in the worst possible place and you can't get coverage everywhere. Just think about all the times you've tried to use your Wi-Fi in the garage or the kitchen or the bathroom and shook your phone in frustration. You might need one of these.
This package comes with three of the 2nd generation eeros. Each one connects to an Ethernet port, so you need to have Ethernet wiring throughout your home, or maybe your small business, to use this properly. If you can use these, the benefits are worth it. The 2nd gen eeros have tri-band Wi-Fi, which adds a third 5GHz radio to your system. That makes your Wi-Fi network stronger and faster, and with three devices running throughout your home you'll probably never moan about your crappy Wi-Fi ever again.
If you don't have three Ethernet outlets to plug into, you can get this Eero package (opens in new tab) that comes with one Ethernet-powered Eero and two Eero Beacons for $356. Beacons only need a regular plug outlet, not an Ethernet port, to be powered. They aren't as strong, of course, but they may be more convenient.
Never set up a mesh networking system like this? Android Central breaks down how easy the Eero is to use and what you'll need to do it.
Once you've got your Wi-Fi setup to your satisfaction, it's time to add a few voice-controlled Echos for just $75 to the network. Use that stronger Wi-Fi to turn your home into a Smart home.

I'll just pick up a Google WiFi 3 pack for $200 less.
You only need to hook one of the Eeros to Ethernet. The rest do NOT need to be connected to Ethernet. In fact I don't think they support that configuration. The non beacons actually have a 3rd radio in them for the back haul. Have this at work it works really well.
I have the first gen, but have been very impressed. When I first got it, I had an issue getting one of them to install a firmware update. Contacted support, painless. Based in the US and knew his stuff. Got it fixed, haven't had an issue updating since. Over on Reddit, a firmware developer of theirs is quite active. It is obvious from his posts that they put a lot of thought into their design and decisions.
