Amazon acquiring eero to enrich its smart home, IoT strategies

E-commerce leader Amazon is acquiring mesh Wi-Fi company eero for an undisclosed amount and unknown terms.

eero sells Wi-Fi routers and extender beacons to consumers who intend to spread a single network across the entirety of a building while controling certain aspects of the connection from certain areas. The company also sells a pacakge of security services under its eero Plus banner which includes VPN routing, password management, antivirus software, ad blocking and more.

Amazon could use this pickup to extend its range of smart home offerings from its Alexa-powered speakers in order to compete head-to-head with Google and its Nest range of security cameras, thermostats and more. Other analysts suggest that the company could be working deeper with its Internet of Things strategy — strengthened wireless connections could be useful for its high-level infrastructure goals like delivery drones for near-instant product drop-offs.
