Netgear Orbi Voice provides the dual-band connectivity for all of your wireless or WiFi devices. On the other hand, the satellite included in the package is a fully functioning Alexa speaker as well. As a matter of fact, in my testing, I found it to be more sensitive, more delicate with better fidelity or accurate than other official smart Alexa devices.
The only problem is that it doesn’t have a calling or drop-in capability. Still, if you’re in search for a system that gives the solid/ powerful/strong WiFi and does more often than take up space on your mantle or cloak, then Netgear Orbi RBK50V is a great choice.
