The Eero Pro tri-band router provides fast and reliable Wi-Fi throughout a home of about 1,500-square feet. Coverage can vary depending on the floor plan, construction materials, and other objects in your home. The advantage of the Eero Pro is that you can start with a single unit and then add one or more Eero Beacons or additional Eero Pros for more coverage if a single unit is not sufficient. For additional coverage for one end or area in a house, adding an Eero Beacon should do the trick, although it won’t include Ethernet ports. To cover a second or third floor, a second or third Eero Pro would be a better solution, both because of the additional range compared to an Eero Beacon and to gain two Ethernet ports for wired connections.
