Nest updates product line

Nest, the smart themostat company, has updated their product line and control app. Here's a summary of the updates:

  • Nest Cam, Nest’s new pocket-size security camera, offers high-definition video quality, motion alerts and night vision. Users can see live video captured by the camera on a smartphone.
  • Nest Protect, the second iteration of Nest’s smoke and carbon monoxide detector, can use two wavelengths of light to sense different types of fires. It also lets users silence an alarm from a smartphone.
  • Nest’s flagship product, the Nest Learning Thermostat, now notifies customers when pipes may freeze and integrates with other Nest products. The thermostat adjusts temperature based on a user’s habits and can be controlled from a smartphone.
  • The new version of the Nest app lets consumers control all three Nest products from one place.

​The Nest family also communicates with other things to help your home be smarter. Your newer Mercedes will let Nest know when you are coming home and will get your home temps ready; it will work with a Big Ass Fan and help regulate temperatures; it will even talk with your Whirlpool SmartGrid appliances and delay starting until the most economical usage time occurs. Those are only a few of the things that Nest can do. To see more, read this info.
