Which Package to Get?

I've spent countless hours reading into different mesh systems, and I've decided to try Eero.  I have some basic knowledge of the systems and how mesh networking works, but to be honest, I think I'm overthinking this process so much!  I dealt with faulty internet for years, and I'm looking for a worry-free setup.

I'm looking for some advice as to what combination of eeros I should get (pros, beacons, how many).

Here's some background info:  House is 1500sqf bungalow with a finished basement.  I would like to have solid speed/coverage in my backyard as well.  I currently have 1.5GBPS internet, but all of my devices are wireless, outside of one Sonos speaker, which is plugged into my router to create Sonosnet (It's very important to me that Sonos works well!).  Have around 30 devices (phones, tablets, Firesticks, speakers etc.).

Any suggestions on which eero package I should go with would be appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

  • My advice with your square footage would be to only get one eero Pro 6 and see how the coverage is. If you find there are any weak spots (like maybe your basement or backyard), then add a Beacon.

    In regards to Sonos, I have 9 speakers spread throughout my house and have no issues whatsoever. And I don’t use the Sonosnet function; all my speakers are wireless and just use my eero WiFi.

      cMoo92 Thanks.  The Pro with beacons is what I had been narrowing it down to lately.  

      And glad to hear that your Sonos works well.  My hesitation with getting one Pro was that it wouldn't be in an area conducive to wiring up a speaker, which would then mean another $150 spent on a Boost.
