Learn more about the AmpliFi Mesh Wi-Fi System this Black Friday & Cyber Monday
In your home, WiFi is often competing with obstructions and walls. Because of this, having one router can limit WiFi signal depending on where you are in relation to the router. As a result, the Amplifi HD, and other home WiFi systems like it use several extenders or routers which are spread throughout your home. They then work together to spread the WiFi signal more evenly over a much larger space. The AmpliFi system is scaleable, so you can add more mesh points if you need to extend your signal further or find another dead point.
The mesh network features dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi, with maximum theoretical aggregated speeds of 5.25 Gbps split across the two bands. This is only a theoretical maximum, in practice there are many other elements that can reduce the speeds you will actually receive on devices. The companion App that comes with the system will guide you through the setup process, but it can also be used to track your usage statistics, test speeds. You can also view which devices are connected to the internet and control them, which is a great feature for parents trying to keep tabs on whether their kids are doing homework or going to bed!
The main router has a cool interface screen that shows you certain statistics about your connection, but whether these features are enough to convince you to buy this system over other mesh networks out is another question. We think the Amplifi seems expensive, especially so considering that it doesn’t feature tri-band technology. Regardless, it seems like AmpliFi Black Friday deals week could be the best time to pick up one of these home WiFi systems for a discount, so this could alter your perception of its worth!
