How does your home network work?
A popular solution: a wireless mesh network.
Why is a wireless mesh network not suitable for every home?
Systems are susceptible to massive signal loss through the air. Wi-Fi has the same trouble travelling through hard surfaces as we would. What these products also don’t want to tell you is that the more access points, or pods, you add, the weaker the signal gets. Look at it like you are stretching a rubber band; if you stretch it in one or two directions then you might be okay, but the farther you stretch it, and in more directions, the thinner and thinner it gets. That is why using a wireless mesh network is not the right solution for everyone, or for certain properties.
