The San Francisco-based startup says it will use the capital to expand the team and improve its customer support. The money will also fuel distribution efforts.
Though the products are already available at Eero.com and Amazon, customers will also be able to buy “one hell of a fancy router” — the kind you’d expect to see from Apple — on BestBuy.com, starting this week. Eero products will debut in physical Best Buy stores this summer.
Eeros aren’t cheap: The company’s three-pack costs $499, while single units are priced at a (slightly) more modest $199.
Both Menlo’s Mark Siegel and Index Ventures’ Mike Volpi will work closely with Eero as part of the deal. Siegel will join Eero’s board, while Volpi will collaborate as a partner.
First Round Capital, Shasta Ventures, Redpoint Ventures, and Playground Global —all previous Eero investors — also participated in the funding round.
