Amazon buys the Eero router company to support the expansion of Alexa

 Amazon today announced the acquisition of the company Eero, which was the first to bring to the market routers that connect to each other to ensure a homogenous internet signal throughout the home, and that will now serve to support the expansion of the virtual assistant Alexa.

The company led by Jeff Bezos reported the transaction in a statement in which the amount for which the purchase was closed was not detailed and in which he praised Eero for offering a Wi-Fi system that “installs in a matter of minutes.” and it sends an internet signal with guarantees to each of the rooms. “

Eero, founded in 2014 and headquartered in San Francisco (California), was the pioneer of the system of routers connected to each other in which Google subsequently entered with an equivalent product dubbed Google Wifi.

“We are very impressed with the Eero team and how quickly they invented a Wi-Fi system that makes all the devices connected to it work,” said Amazon vice president of devices and services, Dave Limp.

“We share the vision that the experience of smart homes can be even simpler in the future and we are committed to continue innovating for the benefit of our customers,” he added.

Amazon has been betting on home automation for years thanks to its virtual assistant Alexa and the Echo physical devices, which act as loudspeakers and receivers of voice commands, so the acquisition of Eero routers completes its control of the entire chain of the service. (EFEUSA) .-
