One exciting development in technology this year was the rise of better home wireless networking via companies like Eero, Orbi by Netgear, and more. And now Google has entered this space with its Google Wifi system. The idea is simple: instead of just having one wireless router with limited range, you set up a “mesh” network of multiple little routing devices throughout the home. The result is a more consistent signal and no more dead zones, plus a system you can manage on your smartphone. Win-win.
