Last week Nest acquired Dropcam and this week their march to become a smart home platform to be reconed with continues.
Matt Rogers, Founder and VP of Engineering at Nest covers some of the more than 5,000 developers that have already joined the program in the video below.
There are interface links to Whirlpool washer / driers, LIFX light bulbs and link your Jawbone UP24 wearable link to your Nest system too. The Logitech Harmony Ultimate universal remote can control your Nest thermostat and your lights and Google Now users can speak commands like “OK Google. Set Nest to 75 degrees”. You can even have your Mercedes-Benz can inform Nest of your estimated time of arrival so your home is heated or cooled to your target temperature.
“The Nest Learning Thermostat and Nest Protect alarm are already helping people save energy, stay comfortable, and improve home safety – but that’s only the beginning,” said Matt Rogers, founder and vice president of engineering, Nest. “Our goal has always been to bring this kind of thoughtfulness to the rest of your home and life – and that’s what the Nest Developer Program is all about. To kick off the program, we’ve worked with iconic brands like Mercedes-Benz and Whirlpool, as well as new industry leaders like Jawbone and LIFX, to build seamless, secure and practical Works with Nest experiences for the home.”
