Eero’s New Wi-Fi Routers Are Step One In Its Plan To Become A Smart-Home Giant

The early support for Thread may even hint at where Eero is going next. Tom Kerber, an analyst for Parks Associates, notes that one of the main features of Thread is that it’s decentralized. Instead of sending all communications through a single hub, Thread enables a scenario where any device can make decisions and perform computing on behalf of other devices on the network.

“When you talk to the silicon vendors, their long-term view of the connected home, and how it operates, and how devices communicate with each other, Thread is trying to be in alignment with that,” Kerber says.
