Nest Labs, Inc. Key Developments

Nest Labs, Inc. Announces Third Generation Nest Learning Thermostat

Nest Labs, Inc. announced the third generation Nest Learning Thermostat, which has a slimmer profile, a high-resolution screen that’s 40% larger, and an updated user interface to make it easier to read temperatures, alerts and messages. New software features for the third generation Nest Thermostat include Farsight, which automatically displays the target temperature or time when it senses movement in the room, and Furnace Heads-Up, which uses diagnostics to give advance notice about possible problems with a customer’s heating system. New features for the third generation Nest Learning Thermostat: Sleek new design " The Nest Thermostat has a 40% larger, brighter, high-resolution screen and new graphics so one can see it easier from far away. The crisp display has 229 pixels per inch (PPI), 25% more than the 2nd generation Nest Thermostat. The 3rd generation Nest Thermostat also has a slightly thinner profile to be more flush against the wall. Farsight " Previously, one had to be pretty close - about 3 feet (1 meter) away - to get the Nest Thermostat to wake up and turn on the display. Farsight takes advantage of the new high-resolution screen so that one can see useful information on the Nest Thermostat from across the room. One can set the thermostat to display target temperature, an analog clock or digital clock, or turn Farsight off. Furnace Heads-Up " Most heating and forced air furnaces have an automatic shutoff to avoid overheating. The Nest Thermostat will look for shutoff patterns that indicate there’s a persistent problem and if so, one will get a Heads-Up message in the Nest app and on the thermostat screen twice per year, and one’ll also get a notice in ones monthly Home Report. And, like the 1st and 2nd generation, the 3rd generation Nest Thermostat will also include the following integrations with Nest Protect and Nest Cam. When Nest Protect sounds a Heads-Up or Emergency Alarm for smoke or carbon monoxide (CO), in addition to a Nest app notification you'll see a message on the Nest Thermostat display to help one know what's going on. The Nest Thermostat can automatically shut off fossil fuel- based heating systems, which is the cause of CO leaks in the home, in case that is the source.

Nest Labs, Inc. Refreshes Entire Product Line

Nest Labs, Inc. announced sweeping refreshes and redesigns across the company’s entire product portfolio with the introduction of Nest Cam, the second generation Nest Protect, new features for the Nest Learning Thermostat, and a brand new app. Nest Cam - With full high-definition (1080p) video quality, a versatile stand, and improved motion alerts and night vision, the new Nest Cam allows people to keep an eye on what they care about from anywhere. And beginning next month, Nest Cam will be available in Europe. Nest Protect - The second generation Nest Protect smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) alarm is the first residential alarm to offer a custom, Split-Spectrum Sensor that uses two wavelengths of light to look for different types of fires. Also, Nest Protect alarms can now be silenced from phone. Nest Learning Thermostat - The best-selling Nest Learning Thermostat is getting even better, now notifying customers when temperatures drop to help avoid frozen pipes and adding new integrations with other Nest products. Nest app 5.0 - The redesigned Nest app 5.0 brings together all three Nest products, across multiple platforms, for the first time, making it easier to access and control Nest products. Nest Cam: With live video streaming to a phone or computer, Nest Cam gives people peace of mind and the ability to stay connected to the things they care about. The all-new Nest Cam builds on the Dropcam features customers love, adding better video quality and a new design to make it even easier to keep an eye on home. Nest Cam will be available for the first time in Europe, specifically in Belgium, France, Ireland, Netherlands, and the U.K. New features: New design - The new stand’s magnetic base can stick to metal, be mounted to the wall or screwed onto a universal tripod. It can twist around, bend at an angle, or be mounted upside down. The stand incorporates a rare-earth magnet and ¼ inch, 20-screw mount, so can securely place it in even more locations. Its body design provides three degrees of freedom so customers can capture the view they want; Video quality -Nest Cam delivers crisp 1080p HD over Wi-Fi so customers can see the finest details across the room; Secure streaming - Stream and store video content with a unique 2048-bit RSA key and securely transmit using a 128-bit SSL connection; Improved Night Vision - Eight high-powered infrared LEDs and new algorithms improve Night Vision and motion detection. Other home cameras give a spotlight view at night, but Nest Cam lets see the entire room. And because Nest Cam’s sensors know the difference between a flashlight and sunlight, Night Vision won’t get confused and switch to day mode every time a bright light passes in front of the camera. That can be hugely helpful if an intruder turns on a flashlight, or if headlights flash across window; Nest Aware with Video History - Customers can subscribe for an additional monthly fee to gain access to: Video History - Scroll through 10 or 30 days of content depending on subscription choice so the user have extra time to see what happened and save the stuff want to remember; Alert Summary - If something happens, don’t have to dig through hours of video to find it. Nest Aware with Video History highlights the moments when there is motion or sound and shows what happened; Clips & Timelapses - Make, save and share up to three hours of clips; Activity Zones - Create custom Activity Zones around areas of interest - such as a door - so can be alerted of any activity in a specific area; · Advanced motion sensing - Nest Cam uses the power of the cloud to provide more accurate alerts and detect areas where common false alarms occur, like ceilings. Nest Cam + YouTube: Together with YouTube, Nest is piloting the ability for YouTube creators to stream directly to YouTube Live from Nest Cam, giving viewers a behind-the-scenes look at their favorite personalities. Initial participants include: Unbox Therapy - Lewis Hilsenteger has built a subscriber base of more than two million by sharing the unboxing process of a wide range of consumer electronics products. Lew will use Nest Cam to set up a live stream of his production studio; Devin Supertramp - Devin Graham is an American videographer who produces adventure and extreme sports videos. His channel has more than three million subscribers. Devin will use Nest Cam to give his viewers a live look at the preparation that goes into his amazing stunts; iJustine - Justine Ezarik is a techie, gamer, vlogger and a top personality on YouTube with more than three million subscribers across her channels. Justine plans to use Nest Cam as a way to live stream some of her special events.
