    "No fuss...5 Star....Easily carries WiFi throughout the house....I purchased the Google mesh WiFi home system a little over a month ago, and I purchased it to go along with my Ring Pro doorbell, because something they don't tell you about the Ring doorbell is that it needs a substantial amount of WiFi in order to work properly, so I had to purchase an additional single satellite and put it on the back side of the wall where my ring Pro doorbell is located in order to get a better wifi connection to the doorbell."
