Round out your wifi with eero Built-in.
As the number of connected devices in customers’ homes continues to grow, we keep looking for new ways to make our homes smarter and more reliable. Last year, we launched eero Built-in with Ring Alarm Pro; this year, we’re bringing eero to Echo. With eero Built-in, we’ve added eero mesh wifi technology, including our patented TrueMesh, directly into the latest generation of Echo Dot and Echo Dot with Clock, making them the first Amazon Echo devices to serve as mesh wifi extenders. eero Built-in enabled Echo devices can add up to 1,000 square feet of coverage to your existing eero network and support speeds up to 100 Mbps—so you can easily add music, Alexa, and now wifi to your favorite room. We’re bringing eero Built-in to the all-new 5th Gen Echo Dot and Echo Dot with Clock, as well as the 4th Gen Echo, on Oct. 20. In the coming months, we’ll also bring eero Built-in to the 4th Gen Echo Dot and Echo Dot with Clock through an over-the-air update.
We’ve got your back(up).
Internet outages are frustrating when they happen, and are even more disruptive as we continue to work, learn, watch, and play games from home. That’s why we’re introducing eero Internet Backup, which lets you wirelessly connect your eero network to a backup internet source, like a mobile phone hotspot. You can choose up to eight mobile hotspots or wifi networks as a backup for your home network. Should your internet go down, it’s easy to temporarily switch your eero network over to your backup connection—so your connected devices stay online. Keep enjoying HD video streaming, video conferencing, music streaming, or online gaming with a capable hotspot during an internet outage. And when the outage is over, eero Internet Backup will automatically switch your eero network back to your original connection.
eero Internet Backup will be available in the coming months to all eero Plus subscribers and select ISP customers. More details on the rebrand to eero Plus can be found here.
