Where should I place my AmpliFi router and mesh points for best performance?

If possible, place the AmpliFi router at the center of the home or as close to the center as possible. We recommend placing an AmpliFi mesh point on each side of the router, halfway between the AmpliFi router and an area in the home where you have poor connectivity.

  Tip The LEDs on the AmpliFi mesh points indicate signal strength. All of the LEDs on a mesh point will light up when it is receiving a strong signal.

    It would be easier to understand if you explained location in terms of actual distance in real world situations. If you said, place the mesh point no further than 50 feet from the router, that's easy to understand. Also, the whole, each mesh point covers 6000 sq. ft thing sounds great, but what's the furthest distance from the mesh point that you can expect to get a signal. Also, place everything in the center of your house is ideal, but every house I know has their cable coming in through an outside wall, making it almost impossible to put the router in the center of the house. Maybe showing a graphic of how the router and the mesh points work together with a type of signal "heat map" showing concentric circles emanating from the router and mesh points would be a way to help people understand how these systems work.
