14 Feb Amazon is buying Eero
Amazon is about to expand its smart home offerings by acquiring home mesh router startup, Eero. Eero has made easy-to-setup whole home Wi-Fi without dead zones and now if Amazon controls the router technology, it will most likely make Alexa-compatible gadgets easier to set up. 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.
