I just bought the Amazon eero mesh WiFi router for 69 dollars on Amazon was hoping to get a few questions fielded.
I live in a 55+ retirement community, new building and I'm trying to make my 700 sq foot apartment, completely smart with Alexa. Through a lot of trials and tribulations, I have quite a few things done that are very useful and some just because they're cool.
I consider myself an average user, when it comes to computers and Alexa.
I have a small apartment, but have 4 Echo Dot 3's and 1 Echo Dot 5 with Clock. I tied them all into my fire stick and created a group Den, where I can use my sound bar as well and play music. I have smart bulb lights everywhere a few Bliss night lights, along with an Evolve Sky spectrum (Stars and clouds) all of that. I also have a Blink doorbell system, with the camera and when someone presses the doorbell, all of my Echo's HOWL as I picked that as a sound. It will also say (All 5 of them) Someone is at your door bell.
I can say - Alexa, show me the doorbell through "Fire stick" I have to say "Fire Stick" and the Camera will EVENTUALLY load on my 43 inch Sony TV. It's very slow.
I was hoping that buying the Amazon eero mesh with Wifi router, could really speed things up. Since my apartment is so small and it claims to be good for a 1500 sq foot apartment, it should be great for a 700 sq foot one, right?
Will this device improve my overall speed to ALL of my devices, especially my Blink Doorbell cam?
Hi Michael - It's a Panoramic Wifi from Cox - It's a separate unit, so I guess I'll plug the Eero into it? It doesn't say what model, I know it's not the 6 Wifi one, and the price went down to 69 dollars. Here is the description.
I'm hoping to get the Doorbell camera to the TV quicker. I also just installed the Amazon Alexa Thermostat and got so lucky, just had to plug it in.
