With Spring just a few months away, I am really looking forward to enjoying the mild weather and working outdoors again. There is nothing more pleasant than working from home on a beautiful day to enjoy what Mother Nature has to offer. Imagine having WiFi access to stream your music or your favorite show from your garden, or to be able to effectively work on your laptop straight from your patio.

However, in most cases, your WiFi just isn’t strong or reliable enough to support your networking needs outside the confines of your home.

Traditional extenders and WiFi boosters often aren’t enough to extend your WiFi outdoors. Your network is complicated by the change in network names, which requires that you manually change your WiFi settings each time you move from the router to the extender.  The bandwidth is also compromised as you move to the extender and then don’t forget to take into account the existence of thick walls, mirrors, and windows, which interfere with WiFi signals.   Alternatively, running networking wires from inside to outside is complicated and not recommended.

Realistically, there are very few options to easily extend your WiFi outdoors. Well, that was, until now.

Orbi Whole Home WiFi System now has the perfect outdoor companion – the Orbi Outdoor Satellite (RBS50Y). With this new weather-resistant outdoor satellite, which pairs with your existing Orbi router or Orbi Pro, you can now easily extend your high-performance wireless coverage outdoors, up to an extra 2,500 square feet!

Same WiFi Network, Inside and Out

Orbi Outdoor Satellite takes your WiFi outside, using your same WiFi network (as opposed to traditional WiFi extenders). Get complete flexibility to move around your house and stay connected from your living room to your swimming pool as you work, stream or play. And, with NETGEAR’s patented FastLane3 Technology powering it, you get reliable coverage and fast Tri-band WiFi speeds wherever you go. Outdoor Orbi’s WiFi is more powerful than any laptop, tablet or phone, so your signal outside will be much better and your speeds will be faster than connecting to an indoor device.

Having a pool party?  – Orbi Keeps the WiFi Strong

Whether you’re having friends and family over for a pool party, or you’re just enjoying a late night by the fire pit, rest assured that you can still stream music seamlessly from your speakers in the backyard. The Orbi Outdoor satellite allow you to continuously stream your favorite playlist from anywhere on your property without interruptions.

WiFi Where it Has Never Been Before

The weather-resistant design and wall-mounting capability make for a hassle-free setup. With an international standard IP56 rating for dust and water-resistance, the Orbi Outdoor Satellite is designed to withstand rough outdoor weather conditions, including sub-zero temperatures, to keep your WiFi up all year long, no matter the season.

Perfect for extending your WiFi to the shed, detached garage, or barn, you can stream step-by-step, how-to and DIY videos right to your smartphone or tablet.  The Satellite does not need to be kept under cover, and can be mounted on a stand or wall-mounted on the side of your house, garage, terrace or shed, anywhere with access to electrical power, rain or shine.

Set up the Orbi Outdoor Satellite in minutes using our Orbi app or web browser to extend your mesh WiFi system outdoors.  Bring your WiFi to the party, wherever and whenever you need it, with Orbi.
