Amazon is expanding its products for the smart home today. The company announced that it is acquiring the Eero mesh router company for an undisclosed amount. The merger will make Eero continue to operate its brand independently and expand globally.
Amazon says that the acquisition of Eero by the company will help its customers to "connect better" smart devices for the home. Eero is one of the leading companies of mesh routers, which paves the way for a lot of other similar products, even from large companies such as Google and Netgear. The company's WiFi systems help users get a fast and reliable Wi-Fi connection in all parts of their home with the WiFi mesh system, which works essentially like a blanket.
"We are incredibly impressed with the eero team and how quickly they invented a WiFi solution that makes connected devices work," said Dave Limp, Amazon's executive vice president of devices and services. "We have a shared vision that the smart home experience can be even easier, and we are committed to continuing to innovate on behalf of customers."
The acquisition of Eero by Amazon will only make the company even stronger in the world of smart homes. It not only makes Echo and Alexa products, but now also has WiFi systems that are the backbone of smart homes. Amazon also owns companies such as Ring, so it is trying to reach almost every part of their home. And as frightening as it may be, Amazon has effortlessly executed its smart home range, and there is no doubt that it will continue to dominate the smart home market in the future.
