If I have Norton core and I want mesh my network since I live on multiple floors, are there issues with using eero or luma on the network with Norton core?
Stealthx Eero = Very expensive>one unit required to cover each 1000 sq. ft. coverage
Luma = Again expensive for a 3 pk, requires a separate app and separate subscription
While both Eero and Luma will work added to core, adding other solutions such as a decent router/range extenders in AP mode will extend your Core network AND Core will protect the entire network. NO added subscriptions, no added apps to confound setup and cause issues.
Since Core has its own AV / Firewall solution there isn't a need for additional protection. Two services would most definitely conflict with one another.
Stealthx I'm following up to see if we can assist further.
Correction. Luma has no subscription for protection built into the hardware. Subscription is for added AV and VPN. Core does not have VPN. Subscription less than Norton. Hardware priced less than Core for 3 pack and greater coverage.
Fee based Luma: Webroot SecureAnywhere anti-virus protection for up to three devices. Core is unlimited which more than makes up for the additional $5 subscription. And Webroot? Doesn't even come close to Norton or other A/V solutions.
Coverage for Core: 3000 sg. ft open space
In a nutshell: Why have two subscriptions when only one is needed to satisfy your entire network? Luma will work with Core however there are far cheaper range extender solutions on the market. Given Core has had its issue since introduction personally I see and use it, its a far better product than Luma.
I tried the Core but returned it because it still would not reach the areas in my 1400 sq. ft. house. I have to keep the router in the lower level and it just would not reach upstairs in the other side of the house without a mesh network. I'd probably try it again if they had a mesh network option. Extenders are not the same as a true mesh network.
And Webroot is pretty much equal with Norton in most reviews I've seen. https://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2372364,00.asp
And you don't have to buy a subscription for Luma to work. It's an add on for the AV and VPN if needed/wanted since it does a great job blocking on it's own. (I also have Norton Security for 10 devices which I buy when on sale but it has never found anything since Luma has blocked all threats but it's neat seeing the status of your PCs in the Windows 10 Norton Studio app).
