  • Amazon agrees to buy Eero, maker of home Wi-Fi hardware

Amazon has bought a Silicon Valley Wi-Fi router maker that will help keep its ever-growing line of smart home products online in homes that suffer from patchy internet coverage.

Bay Area-based Eero, named after Finnish industrial designer Eero Saarinen, has been in operation since early 2015.

"We are incredibly impressed with the eero team and howquickly they invented a WiFi solution that makes connected devices just work", Dave Limp, SVP of Amazon Devices and Services, said in a statement.

"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. Neither Amazon nor Eero revealed how much money the tech giant paid in the acquisition, but Eero had raised $90 million in venture capital since its founding. Smart home systems are notoriously complex to set up, and the interplay of devices can put a lot of strain on home WiFi systems. That equipment has likely become even more important for Amazon, since Wi-Fi is the foundation for all the smart-home gear Amazon is selling. Every customer deserves reliable and secure WiFi in every room. Amazon has been pushing a feature called Wi-Fi Simple Set-Up, which is meant to make setting up home networks easier. Add that together with this new purchase and the company's own efforts with its Echo and Fire TV devices, and it's obvious that Amazon's serious about tackling smart hardware in every way that it can.

Eero, founded in San Francisco five years ago, sells $200 (roughly Rs. 14,200) devices that can spread Wi-Fi throughout a home.

Amazon's smart home focused is centered around the digital brain Alexa, and making it more simple for users.
