Here’s how you can bring some smarts to your patio for fall

Netgear Orbi
Outdoor Satellite

Cnet rating: 4.5 stars out of 5
The good: It has superb range and can live outside year round to extend Wi-Fi to your yard, pool or garage. It even has a night light.
The bad: It can be used only with an Orbi router and it costs more than most of its competitors. Despite security measures from Netgear, someone could steal or break it if you leave it outside.
The cost: $330
The bottom line: If you have the money to spend and already have an Orbi router, this will give you great coverage outdoors and speeds as fast as you get inside. Make sure you mount it somewhere safe if you plan to leave it outdoors.
