Orbi Outdoor Satellite adds Wi-Fi coverage to your back yard

Orbi Outdoor Satellite adds Wi-Fi coverage to your back yard
From TechCrunch - February 14, 2018

Im a big fan of the Netgear Orbi line of mesh access points and now theres more to love. Netgear is now shipping the RBS50Y, a new satellite that is weatherproof and allows you to add coverage to your back yard or garage without worrying that your access point will short out in the rain.

The new device requires an Orbi Routerthe RBR50, RBR40, RBR20 or SRR60, specificallyand connects to your home network via an easy-to-use app. The outdoor router adds up to 2,500 square feet of extra coverage and it increased my Wi-Fi coverage in the back of my house from about -80 dBm to -51 dBm, a marked improvement. This means we have better access to the Sonos indoors as well as to the camera in the back yard.
