Amazon on Monday said that it has acquired Eero, a start-up that developed home internet routers that can be connected with one another inside homes. Terms of the deal weren't disclosed.
Google has a competing product called Google Wifi.
"We are incredibly impressed with the eero team and how quickly they invented a WiFi solution that makes connected devices just work," Dave Limp, senior vice president for Amazon devices and services, said in a statement. "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."
Eero was founded in 2014 and had headquarters in San Francisco. More than 150 people are listed as Eero employees on LinkedIn.
