Amazon has announced two new versions of its HomeKit Secure Router compatible Eero router with support for Wi-Fi 6 and Zigbee. The new line of routers includes the Eero 6 and the Eero Pro 6 mesh Wi-Fi routers, and Eero 6 Wi-Fi extenders.
The standard Eero 6 offers one of each of the two bands.The Eero Pro 6 is also a tri-band router, offering two 5GHz bands and a single band which is 2.4GHz. Both the Eero 6 and Eero Pro 6 feature two Ethernet ports and a USB-C port.
While the Zigbee connectivity is useful, it only works with Alexa compatible devices and is no use for HomeKit users.
