Etisalat UAE today announced that it is teaming up with Amazon to offer eero devices for the first time in the country. Starting today, eero 6 and eero Pro 6 Wi-Fi mesh devices will be available for customers to purchase at Etisalat UAE retail outlets across the nation. In the coming months, Etisalat UAE will also offer Amazon’s range of Echo smart home devices.
The collaboration with Amazon will also involve Etisalat UAE’s subsidiary Solid that will manage the logistics and distribution of eero and Echo devices for Etisalat UAE’s retail outlets, in addition to working with eero that will provide after sales support for its Wi-Fi mesh devices.
The eero 6 series is a whole home mesh Wi-Fi system delivering fast, secure Wi-Fi across the home. Offering Wi-Fi 6 technology and support for more than 75 simultaneously connected devices, eero’s mesh technology uses multiple eero devices to blanket an entire home in reliable broadband coverage. With a built-in Zigbee smart home hub, eero 6 and eero Pro 6 eliminate the need for a separate Zigbee hub. After you link your eero and Amazon account, Zigbee devices such as smart lights, locks, plugs, and other compatible devices can connect directly to the consumer’s eero network.
The eero 6 series is also convenient for customers to set up —simply unplug the old router, connect your eero 6 device to the modem and then sign in to the app.
Ideal for homes with gigabit internet connections, a single eero Pro 6 is a tri-band, high-performance mesh Wi-Fi 6 router with two Ethernet ports and a built-in Zigbee smart home hub. A single eero Pro 6 covers up to 190 square metres. A two-pack includes two eero Pro 6 routers, covering up to 320 square metres. An eero Pro 6 three-pack includes three eero Pro 6 devices that are interconnected with a wire or wirelessly to cover up to 560 square metres (additional Ethernet cables sold separately).
Designed for homes with internet connections up to 900 Mbps, a single eero 6 is a dual-band mesh Wi-Fi 6 router with two Ethernet ports and a built-in Zigbee smart home hub. A single eero 6 covers up to 140 square metres. An eero 6 two-pack covers up to 280 square metres and includes an eero 6 mesh router and the all-new eero 6 mesh Wi-Fi extender. An eero 6 three-pack, which provides up to 420 square metres of coverage, includes an eero 6 and two eero 6 mesh Wi-Fi extenders.
Khaled Elkhouly, Chief Consumer Officer at Etisalat UAE, said: “Customers are always seeking out ways to make their homes more comfortable while enjoying the latest smart technologies and digital experiences. By working closely with Amazon, we will now be able to offer the incredible range of Echo smart speakers and eero Wi-Fi mesh devices at our stores across the UAE, enabling our customers to create fully interconnected smart home networks seamlessly by increasing their Internet of Things (IoT).”
