The Nest Learning Thermostat. The Nest is ubiquitous with the Smart Home.
I personally love the Nest (read my Nest Review). It is an amazing piece of technology that I really couldn’t live without. But, with Google buying Nest, does it still make sense to purchase this home automation product?
The simple answer is YES! Google might change the product (even though Google say that it won’t change Nest), I still think Nest is a much purchase in the smart home/home automation market. There are other [easyazon_link asin=”B00FLZEQH2″ locale=”US” new_window=”default” tag=”chihan-20″ add_to_cart=”default” cloaking=”default” localization=”default” nofollow=”default” popups=”default”]Honeywell Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat[/easyazon_link], but the Nest is simply easier to use and better. Be sure to read my Nest Review before you buy any wi-fi thermostat.
I, personally believe, that the Google acquisition will help all of us. Expect more integration into Android, Chrome and every other Google Product. Nest even confirmed that they WILL continue to support iOS. After all, Nest was created by former Apple employees – the guy who made the original iPod. Google has a strong reputation for buying companies simply for the talent, but my money is set on them continuing to grow Nest.
