Xiaomi makes mesh networks easy

In our first article we introduced you to the Xiaomi AX3000 Mesh System, which is the new king when it comes to affordable, fast and secure mesh networks that make Wi-Fi range extenders obsolete.

One reason why some people may still be tolerating Wi-Fi range extenders is that they’re worried about the rumoured complexity of other options. Well those rumours are just rumours as the truth is this: Xiaomi has made the AX3000 Mesh System easy to install even for those who may not be comfortable with network hardware.

Now that you know how easy it is to get going with the Xiaomi AX3000 Mesh System, there are a few ways to actually get the system in your home, school or work.

First there’s the app option. Download the Xiaomi Home app and you can follow a tailor-made installation process to get the mesh network running using your existing South African internet connection. It really is as simple as grabbing the app from the Google Play Store or Apple App Store and wirelessly connecting to your Xiaomi AX3000 Mesh System to go through the connection and setup process.

Prefer to do things another way? The Xiaomi AX3000 Mesh System can also be configured from a PC using a browser. This is usually the preferred method for those who are more adept at tinkering with network specifics but it is still simple to do. Again Xiaomi has made this as simple as possible with helpful information and easy to use pages throughout.

No matter how you choose to set up you can see some of the great features of the Xiaomi AX3000 Mesh System as you configure your network. Features such as automatic firmware upgrades, 160MHz dynamic bandwidth for a better connection even with many devices on the network, the many security features certified by BSI Kitemark and more. We also love how elements can be tweaked after setup, especially elements you may not always use, such as a dedicated guest Wi-Fi channel which is perfect when family and friends are staying over.

Before you can go on the quick setup journey with the Xiaomi AX3000 Mesh System, you first need to pick yours up. Takealot, Makro and Incredible all have the devices in stock and ready to ship out to you right now. Even better is the fact that you can choose between the 1-pack or 2-pack depending on your needs.

With a RRP of R1 499 for the 1-pack and R2 899 for the 2-pack, you can choose exactly what fits your Wi-Fi expectations and budget. The 1-pack already gives you superior speed and coverage, but the 2-pack boosts the effective area of the system even further to the point where you can blanket a space up to 371 square metres in Wi-Fi 6 speeds up to 2 976 Mbps.

On Takealot we can even see reviews pointing out how easy installation is, on top of the great coverage and speed once the setup is complete. Easy installation is mentioned several times in the hundred plus reviews that the Xiaomi Mesh System AX3000 has garnered with the 1-pack boasting a 4.3 star rating out of five, and the 2-pack a 4.3 star rating out of five. These ratings also illustrate just how bullish Xiaomi is with great South African pricing as few, if any, mesh network solutions can match these prices and features.

More nodes on the network also mean that you can create a network that fits even the most demanding of spaces, even if the structure is filled with nooks and crannies. These nodes and all of the Xiaomi smart home products can all be controlled from the same Xiaomi Home app that you may have used during installation.
