With the pace at which society is progressing, more so the tech aspect of it, it is unimaginable to have to go about your day without using the internet. That being said, life has become very much convenient because of it. Sending emails on the go without needing the laptop, shopping online, streaming movies, listening to endless music, not to forget the upside to conducting business online.
However, there’s a catch. For all of this, and more, to work seamlessly there needs to be a good, high-speed internet connection because let’s admit it, who doesn’t feel slightly annoyed when the page is buffering? Anyway, we have the perfect device for you.
Google Nest Wi-Fi
The Google Nest Wi-Fi is available in a 1-pack, 2 or more. We would recommend the 2-pack that includes the Router and the Point for optimal usage. The router is plugged into the modem of your internet service provider, to create strong and reliable signals. The point further expands the Wi-Fi coverage to every room within a 3800 square feet coverage, and this device also serves as a Smart Speaker featuring Google Assistant. So you get a mini speaker and a home voice assistant, all in one when you purchase the Google Nest Wi-Fi router with the Point.
The Google Nest Router starts retailing at $169 but if you want to purchase the Point as well, then check out first energy for the best prices. When paired together, the router and point can support up to 200 devices connected at a time, and the signals are so strong you won’t have to worry about buffering or any device lagging.
If you’re someone looking to add the final, perfect touch to your Smart Home, then you need this. Because other than the fact that you will be able to connect all your smart devices to the Google Nest Wi-Fi, its Point serves as a home voice assistant and you know what that means; voice commands and remote control for your home! Amazing, right? This is definitely worth the money you’ll pay, even if you don’t have a smart home or any smart device and appliances.
Regular software updates over time will improve the performance of these devices, and they also come with a built-in security chip in the Nest Router, which means it provides a safe network for your home.
