Nest Labs, Inc. Launches Nest Developer Program
Jun 24 14
Nest Labs, Inc. launched the Nest Developer Program, which makes it possible for Nest and the more than 5,000 developers who've expressed interest in the program to work together to create meaningful interactions among Nest products and others -- both inside and outside of the home. More than just linking and remote controlling the devices in home, the Nest Developer Program allows everything from lighting to appliances to fitness bands and even cars to securely connect with Nest products, bringing the conscious home to life by making those homes safer, more energy efficient, and more aware. Featured Works with Nest integrations that are available now include: IFTTT -- Create own connections with one simple statement: "If This Then That." For example, "If my Nest Protect detects smoke, then send a text message to my neighbors". Jawbone -- Nest knows which temperature like and the Jawbone UP24 band can tell when wake up. Working together, Nest will start to heat up or cool down the home before even step out of bed. LIFX -- If Nest Protect detects elevated smoke or carbon monoxide (CO) levels, LIFX light bulbs can flash red to let know there might be danger and help signal those who are hearing impaired. And when 're on vacation and Nest Thermostat is in Away mode, LIFX can make it look as if someone's home by randomly turning on and off lights throughout the house. Logitech -- With the press of a button, the Logitech Harmony Ultimate universal remote can dim lights, turn on TV and start a movie. Now, it can also set the temperature on Nest Thermostat, all from the comfort of couch.
