Amazon has debuted the $129 Eero 6 and the $229 Eero Pro 6 mesh Wi-Fi routers, along with the $89 Eero 6 extender, that support Wi-Fi 6 and have a built-in Zigbee hub to make connecting smart home tech easy. Following leaks from earlier in September, the Eero Pro 6 improves on its predecessor with support for Wi-Fi 6, which delivers faster speeds and support for more than 75 devices connected simultaneously, according to Amazon.
Similar to the previous generation, the Pro 6 is a tri-band router that offers a single band for tech that connects via 2.4GHz and two bands for 5GHz to allow more devices to connect at the fastest speeds. It can cover up to 2,000 square feet per router. The Eero 6 is a dual-band device that can cover up to 1,500 square feet, as can the extender.
The Eero 6 and Pro 6 look like a hybrid between the older Pro and Eero’s more affordable mesh Wi-Fi system. Both appear to have a slightly more bulbous design. As far as specs go, both the Eero Pro 6 and Eero 6 have two Ethernet ports and a USB-C port for charging your devices, whereas the smaller Eero 6 extender for boosting your network has just a USB-C port. All of these products are backwards compatible with older Eero networking gear.
These products are available for preorder starting today from Amazon, and they’ll launch November 2nd. You can get a pack of two Eero 6 routers for $199, or three for $279. A two-pack of Eero Pro 6 routers will cost $399, or you can get three together for $599.
