They are meant to be used in an environment, where you have an existing WiFi network and mains supply.
A mesh network makes sense for battery powered or energy harvesting small nodes, that transmit only small amounts of data,
where no infrastructure exists.(e.g. outdoors).
For this you'd need energy efficient micros and low power rf, like Zigbee, or BTLE.
