Amazon Acquires Mesh WiFi Maker Eero
Amazon today announced that it is acquiring eero, a company known for its mesh Wi-Fi systems.
eero makes a range of easy-to-use and somewhat affordable mesh Wi-Fi systems, designed to extend Wi-Fi signal across a person’s entire home, putting an end to areas with weak signal.
There are no details on the purchase price, but Amazon says that it is acquiring eero to “help customers better connect smart home devices.”
“We are incredibly impressed with the eero team and how quickly they invented a WiFi solution that makes connected devices just work,” said Dave Limp, SVP of Amazon Devices and Services. “We have a shared vision that the smart home experience can get even easier, and we’re committed to continue innovating on behalf of customers.”
Mesh Wi-Fi systems like eero are ideal for smart home setups with many internet connected devices, and the acquisition fits well with Amazon’s growing portfolio of smart home products such as Ring.
