Nearly a year into this pandemic, your home Wi-Fi is no doubt feeling the strain of competing Zoom calls, Disney + binge watching, and multiple Twitch streams. Let's face it, whether you upgraded a few years ago or still use the router some cable company rented to you, your Wi-Fi probably needs an upgrade.

Enter the TP-Link Deco Voice X20. It's a Mesh WiFi system with a smart speaker that gives it voice control. The Mesh technology is powerful enough to cover a 4,000 square foot house (with a 2 pack), and TP-Link promises you'll be wandering around gaming, streaming, and video calling all over your home without any signal drops. It even a CES 2021 Innovation Awards Honoree.

The TP-Link Deco Voice X20 has Amazon Alexa built in so it supports all the smart-home management of Amazon's platform, as well as voice control and music streaming.

The Deco Voice X20 is part of a family of Wi-Fi 6 products that operate on the newly-opened 6GHz band that offers blazing speeds including AX7800 Whole Home Mesh WiFi 6E System -- Deco X96, which offers 7800 Mbps with tri-band WiFi, AX5400 Whole Home Mesh WiFi 6E System with Smart Hub -- Deco X76 Plus, which adds a smart hub, and AX7800 Tri-Band WiFi 6E Router -- Archer AX96, which offers 7800 Mbps with tri-band WiFi and smart antennas to boost coverage and improve wireless connections.

To protect it all, TP-Link is also introducing HomeShield, a security service that keeps your home network safe with cutting-edge features for network and smart home protection.

The Kasa Spot Pan Tilt with 24/7 Recording is also launching with 2K HD Video with 4 MP high resolution, allowing video capture with intense detail and colors — even when you zoom in. The motion tracking feature detects a subject and then tracks and follows it to keep it in within view. Additionally, with Patrol Mode, you can set multiple distinct viewpoints and program your camera to keep an eye on each region at selected intervals.

There's also a new Kasa Cam Outdoor with 24/7 Recording (KC420WS) which has 2K HD Video, and provides razor sharp 4 MP high resolution that offers greater detail and colors, even when you zoom in too. In addition, IP65 weatherproofing ensures your camera stays protected against rain and dust.
