The single greatest tech product I've invested in recently is a Mesh Wi-Fi system. It has eliminated all the Wi-Fi blind spots, provides rock-solid connections to all my smart home devices and gives a household that includes four internet users who stream all the time hassle-free enjoyment.
One of the best companies in the space is TP-Link and its latest S4 Deco Mesh WiFi System just works brilliantly. This Black Friday and Cyber Monday you can a version for smaller house for less than $90 (18% off) (opens in new tab) , and for bigger houses for $109.99 (27% off) (opens in new tab). There's even a Cyber Monday deal for Mesh Wi-Fi if your house has particularly thick walls, a really problem in some cases. For $159.99 (30% off) (opens in new tab) you can solve a whole lot of internet access problems.

Add 5,500 square feet of internet coverage in your home with no dead zones for one low price.
Unlike traditional home networking systems, which might only contain a router and an extender, mesh Wi-Fi includes multiple mesh routers, often called nodes. Placed around your home, the nodes provide a constant wireless signal, regardless of the location. Mesh Wi-Fi systems come with at least one node, although you're also likely to find two- and three-packs. You can add new nodes to your system at any time if your needs expand.
Crucially your devices automatically switch to the best available connection without you having to dig into your settings at any point. Once set up it's a bullet-proof system.
TP-Link's Deco Mesh technology offers a better Wi-Fi experience with faster speeds and stronger signals. The Deco S4 features up to three units that seamlessly add 5,500 square feet of coverage to your home with no dead zones. In addition, each unit offers two Gigabit Ethernet ports and supports Wired Ethernet Backhaul for better speeds. The system works with all internet service providers, such as AT&T, Verizon, Xfinity, Spectrum, RCN, Cox, CenturyLink, Frontier, and countless more.
Other features include robust parental controls to limit online time and block inappropriate websites based on profiles and easy setup.
