This holiday season, the latest-and-greatest smart TVs, VR headsets, tablets, laptops, smartwatches, and gaming systems will likely be topping everyone’s wish lists—possibly within the same family. But what’s the use in gifting these devices if your Wi-Fi network can’t handle the bandwidth?

That’s where eero comes in. The home Wi-Fi system is designed to juggle the wireless demands of multiple devices within the same household, cutting through walls and floors while continuing to provide reliably fast internet connections. The eero system is also doing something other Wi-Fi systems don't typically doreaching a consumer audience through daytime broadcasts like The Ellen DeGeneres Show, which included the eero in this year’s 12 Days of Giveaways.

The eero combines powerful Wi-Fi technologies, including TrueMesh technology and Qualcomm MU-MIMO (Multiple User-Multiple Input Multiple Output), into one beautifully designed device. With TrueMesh, your Wi-Fi can “hop” across each eero to reach your device, as it’s engineered to autonomously choose the quickest path to take as it jumps through rooms. And MU-MIMO works to serve multiple Wi-Fi devices simultaneously, instead of one at a time.

With eero, you can pile multiple devices onto a single Wi-Fi network, without having to huddle around your single router. But don’t just take our word for it: In addition to the Ellen show, eero has made its way onto multiple holiday gift guides this year, including Brit+Co’s Coolest Tech Gadget Holiday Gift Guide, the Wall Street Journal’s Best Tech Gifts 2016, and Forbes’ Under 30 Holiday Gift Guide.

This holiday season, eero can help keep all of your current and new devices connected.
