Most people think switching to a mesh Wi-Fi network is expensive. While it is in some cases (like eero), but it doesn’t have to be. EnGenius, a known name in networking, is launching a new mesh Wi-Fi system designed for the smart home dubbed ESR530. This system is available in one or two pack kits and starts at just $70.

The ESR530 is a brand-new 802.11ac dual-band mesh Wi-Fi system from EnGenius. It’s built to provide fast, reliable whole-home wireless connectivity for the modern family.

Utilizing 802.11ac 1.3Gbps technology, you’ll enjoy buffer-free video and audio streaming no matter where you are in your home. A setup like this is perfect if you’ve suffered from wireless dead zones in your house previously, as mesh networks can just about get rid of that entirely.

Connectivity for the modern family

On the base of these Wi-Fi routers, it’s very simple: you have power, a LAN input, a Gigabit Ethernet output, and a USB port. If you want to use the same network for a large number of wired devices, you’ll need to pick up a network switch, however.

The USB port, however, offers some great features. You can hook up an external hard drive, and through the EnFile app, you can browse the data on that drive. This is great for storing photos or videos that you want to be able to access wirelessly without a complicated setup.

Setup made simple

The EnMesh mobile app gives you simple step-by-step guides to help you through the stress-free setup. Once you have the network set up, you’ll be able to use all of the perks that EnGenius offers. Plus, if you need to extend your Wi-Fi at all, just plug in a new node. Once it’s online, it will auto-connect to the existing network in your house and set itself up.

Pricing and availability

A single EnGenius ESR530 node will run you $69.99, and two will set you back $129.99. They are already shipping to consumers, so finally upgrade your Wi-Fi and stop fighting slow wireless speeds today.
