FML....We are selling 20-30 units a week. I highly doubt Amazon keeps the Eero name and distribution around.

Consumer quality reports continually place Eero dead last which has come up with several clients. Somehow Orbi, Velop, Google, etc seem to always outclass in these BS reports. SO wish they would have leaned on Netgear or Cisco for their crappy offerings.

I know. I wonder how the "pro channel" will be handled. My guess is just killed off entirely. If they even keep the name "eero"

Yeah, that sucks. Off the record, eero works great with my c0ntrol4 :)

Oh well, on to the next great mesh. Any ideas?

Unlike other companies...Amazon doesn't make many stupid moves. They bought EERO for a reason.

I have read this three times, now four times, I still canít understand what you are saying.

Sorry, let me try again.

Eero normally fares poorly in consumer level comparisons.

I wish Amazon bought Velop instead.

And now all that data that can be collected will be... Slippery slope when a company that big can see into your network.

We did one eero job, at customer request. Our take was that eero is a massive data collection operation so of course Amazon would buy it.

We use eero in my home and it works very well, was very easy to install, and can be used as the router

It's interesting that this is such a big story. I heard a comment about the sale on the local news channel while driving this morning. It was a giggle listening to the explanation of exactly what Eero does.

Anyone else see eero embedding wireless into the Echo?

I think most knew this was coming. Ruckus has become harder to sell because eero works well in 90% of the residential homes we work in. Ruckus is still better than everything else out there but is it worth the cost? Now that things are evolving, will Ruckus find a way to lower their costs for the residential market or is that even a concern of theirs? Do they just stay focused on large scale deployments/systems?

Eero will absolutely go into echo devices... Newell/First Alert bought Luma Home for pennies and will integrate the technology into their hardwired smokes. Apple recently exited the home networking market. Interesting?

All will be for naught when the cell carries get their data networks rolling, everything will connect through them making home wifi obsolete.
