Amazon.com Inc. on Monday disclosed its latest bet to control the so-called smart home, adding to its fold a company that offers a Wi-Fi system that ditches the traditional router.

Seattle-based Amazon and fellow tech giants Alphabet Inc.'s Google and others have been racing to use voice assistants to control everyday devices to promote their services -- and glean valuable consumer data.

Through the purchase of Eero -- a company that promises no Wi-Fi dead zones by deploying a customizable armada of small wireless routers around the house -- Amazon gains control of the router technology, which should make devices easier to set up with Alexa.

Financial terms of the deal weren't disclosed.

"We are incredibly impressed with the Eero team and how quickly they invented a Wi-Fi solution that makes connected devices just work," said Dave Limp, who oversees the company's Alexa business as senior vice president of Amazon devices.

Amazon said Eero's products and services have ranked highly with customers on the Amazon website.

Eero was founded in 2014 in San Francisco.
