Nest kicks off ‘Works with Nest’ developer program
Google’s Nest is going to be the center of your home and connected life. You know all of that “Internet of Things” chatter you hear about? The Nest Learning Thermostat is about to help make that a reality. At least, that’s the hopes with their “Works with Nest” certification program and developer tools.
Announced late last night, the developer program already has some key partners lined up to participate. Names here include Logitech, IFTTT, Whirlpool, Chamberlain, Jawbone, and Mercedes-Benz. What will each of these companies do with Nest? You’d be surprised. Take the Jawbone, for instance, which is able to detect when you’re sleeping and then tell the Nest to adjust the temperature in your house. Another company, LIFX, is able to turn all of the lights in a house red whenever smoke is detected. For deaf users or those with hearing impairments, this visual cue is just as good as the audio one that comes with a smoke detector.
