Amazon today announced that it is acquiring eero, a company known for its mesh Wi-Fi systems.

eero makes a range of easy-to-use and somewhat affordable mesh Wi-Fi systems, designed to extend Wi-Fi signal across a person's entire home, putting an end to areas with weak signal.

There are no details on the purchase price, but Amazon says that it is acquiring eero to "help customers better connect smart home devices."

"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. "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."

Mesh Wi-Fi systems like eero are ideal for smart home setups with many internet connected devices, and the acquisition fits well with Amazon's growing portfolio of smart home products such as Ring.

Well I can safely cross this off a list of future network upgrade possibilities. I hope Apple decides to get back into the game when 802.11ax launches in earnest.

Bought into Eero about 10 months ago and it has been rock solid. I hope this doesn't change things negatively. Really don't like that all my internet traffic will now be passing through an Amazon product..

I agree. This feels almost as bad as when Google bought Nest. Boo.

My first thoughts too. I refuse to put Alexa in my house ... but Amazon is going to do whatever it can to get your household into their databases. Frustrating.
