This post is sponsored and Mama Bear’s Haven received one of the Techie Gift ideas to conduct a review on the Deco Home Wifi system. All opinions are our own as always.
Father’s Day is only a few days away. Have you picked up a gift for your dad or father figure yet? Buying gifts for others is never an easy task unless you are told what they want or know that person well. I always purchased books for my dad since he loved to read. My dad wasn’t really into technology so there wasn’t a need for the newest electronic items. Here is a list of some must-have techie gift ideas.
Techie Gift Ideas for Father’s Day
We all want to feel safe in our homes. Living in an apartment makes me feel less secure so we like to take extra measures. We have had issues in the past with others accessing our network as well as issues keeping a connection in another room.
We unplugged our D-link router and attached the Deco to our modem. Since we live in an apartment we don’t need a bunch of Decos, so 2 is enough for us. For the past week, we have not had any issues with the connection dropping in the bedroom. This was usually a nightly occurrence which has been frustrating when you settle in for the night and BAM, no internet connection. We are able to connect all our wireless devices to the Deco and can monitor it with an app on our phones. The Deco will connect up to 100 devices so you don’t have to worry about having too many.
Eliminate weak Wi-Fi signal areas once and for all! The Deco M4 three-pack delivers Wi-Fi to an area of up to 4,000 square feet by forming a unified network. Devices automatically switch between the Deco pods as you move through your home for the fastest possible speeds. Lag-free connections for up to 100 devices and parental controls all controlled by the easy-to-use Deco app.
