Wi-Fi that reaches some of a home or office, but not all of it, is a common problem. There are of course Wi-Fi extenders, but it might be nice to have one that fills multiple needs. Enter the Sengled Boost, a dimmable LED bulb that will also repeat your Wi-Fi signal, helping you fix dead zones and dark rooms at the same time. Setup and control is done through an app that runs on iOS or Android.
It will be available soon for $50 per unit.
