    "In love...5 stars...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....Literally I took the main module, not that it mattered which unit I took out first since they all have the same amount of connections on them, opened up the google wifi app plugged the power cord into the wifi module hooked up the cable from my modem to the main wifi module, scanned the QR code when asked by the app to do so and I was up and running."
