    Amazon's acquisition of mesh router company Eero is a smart play that adds a number of cards to its hand in the rapidly evolving smart home market. Why shouldn't every router be an Echo, and every Echo be a router? Consolidating the two makes for powerful synergies and significant leverage against stubborn competition.
    It's no secret that Amazon wants to be in every room of the house - and on the front door to boot. It bought connected camera and doorbell companies Blink and Ring , and of course at its events it has introduced countless new devices from connected plugs to microwaves.

    Amazon is about to expand its smart home offerings in a big way. The company just announced its intention to acquire Bay Area-based home mesh router startup, Eero. It's a pretty clear fit for the online retailer as it pushes to make Alexa feature in the connected home.
    The move also makes sense for five-year-old Eero, which, in spite of being early to the home mesh router game and pulling in some high profile investors, has struggled. This time last year, the company laid off 30 employees - roughly one-fifth of its work force.
