Amazon is buying mesh router company eero to dominate your smart home



Amazon announced today that it's buying eero, a popular mesh router start-up that has made easy-to-setup whole home Wi-Fi without dead zones.

It's a move that "helps customers better connect to smart home devices," according to Amazon's press release, but really, it's another way to counter Google's smart home initiatives, one of the only ones Amazon didn't have an answer for in 2019.

Eero became one of the first companies to sell simple mesh routers in 2016, with identical routers hubs and beacons that could blanket Wi-Fi throughout a home.
