The tech giant says eero uses multiple access points that work together as a system to blanket a home in high-performing and reliable WiFi; customers can also customize an eero system to meet the needs of their home and eliminate WiFi deadzones.
Amazon also says customers can set up the system in under 10 minutes, and updates and instructions can be delivered via the cloud.
“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, in a prepared statement. “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.”
“From the beginning, eero’s mission has been to make the technology in homes just work,” said Nick Weaver, co-founder and CEO of eero, also in a statement. “We started with WiFi because it’s the foundation of the modern home. Every customer deserves reliable and secure WiFi in every room. By joining the Amazon family, we’re excited to learn from and work closely with a team that is defining the future of the home, accelerate our mission, and bring eero systems to more customers around the globe.”
Completion of this transaction is subject to customary closing conditions.
