Google Nest is the company’s line of smart home devices. In addition to the Nest Learning Thermostat, the line includes the Nest Hello Doorbell, Nest Hub, and Nest Cam.
Who owns Nest?
In 2014, Google purchased Nest, adding to the company’s Internet of Things portfolio. Since then, Nest has become a household name, largely due to the ease of use of smart devices. The company officially rebranded Nest as Google Nest in mid-2019.
Google Nest Thermostat
The Nest Learning Thermostat, which comes with different colored rings to match your home decor, has an easy-to-read display. It can automatically control your heat and hot water. In just one week, the thermostat will know how hot or cold you want your home to be throughout the day. When you are at home, it will raise the temperature, and when you go out, it will lower it, ultimately saving you energy.
The device tracks your activity and creates a schedule based on that data. It will lower your heat at night and raise it in the morning, so you’ll wake up to a warmer home. As you leave for work, the Nest thermostat will detect that you’ve left using sensors and your smartphone’s location, and set itself to Eco Temperatures to save energy.
If you’re out and about, but your kids are on their way home, pick up your smartphone and adjust the temperature remotely with the Nest app.
More than just environmental control
The latest version of the Nest Learning Thermostat allows you to control your hot water tank with its hot water schedule, all adjustable from the app. Forgot to turn off the hot water while you were away? No problem. Are guests staying and need extra hot water? No problem. The Nest thermostat handles this for you.
The thermostat’s energy history and monthly home reports show you how much energy you use each day and when. The report suggests how you can use less. When you set the temperature to an energy-saving level, the unit displays the Nest Leaf.
Another added feature in the latest Nest Learning Thermostat is Farsight. The thermostat will light up and show you the temperature, time or season. You can also choose an analog or digital watch face.
Working with Nest Heat Link, the thermostat works with your boiler to control heat and hot water. Heatlink can connect to your boiler wirelessly or using wires from your existing thermostat, then ‘talk’ to the thermostat to modulate the heat.
The Nest app connects via WIFI, allowing you to control your home’s temperature remotely.
Google Nest smoke and carbon monoxide detection.
Google Nest Protect is a smart home smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) detector that communicates with you via your smartphone so you know immediately if there’s a problem.
Nest Protect features a Split-Spectrum Sensor, a technology used by Nest to detect a wide range of smoke events, including smoke fires and high-flame fires. The device also self-tests to ensure accuracy, and lasts up to ten years. It includes an alarm that you can silence remotely from your phone. If there is a smoke event, a human voice provides an early warning and tells you where the danger is so you can act accordingly.
Nest Protect also has a carbon monoxide detector that protects your family from this colorless, odorless gas.
Google Nest indoor and outdoor cameras.
The Nest Cam family of cameras that can be used indoors or outdoors means you’ll never miss a second of what’s going on inside and outside your home. Nest Cams plug into the mains power supply and come with an all-glass lens for a close-up tracking view.
The cameras have some useful features, including:
- Ability to distinguish people from objects.
- The system can send you an alert if someone activates the camera.
- It can scare off intruders or allow you to communicate with friends and family members.
- Face recognition alerts you to familiar faces and strangers.
- 24/7 cloud storage gives you thirty days of recorded video history, with the ability to create and share clips.
Google Nest compatible devices.
Nest is also compatible with a number of other smart home products through its Works with Google Assistant program (formerly Works with Nest). For broader home automation, a Google Nest-compatible smart home hub can help you connect Nest to other non-Nest products.
Frequently Asked Questions
- How does the Nest Temperature Sensor work? With Google Nest Temperature Sensors, you can measure and set temperatures for different areas of your home. You don’t need a temperature sensor to use the Nest Thermostat, but if you install the Nest Thermostat in an outdoor location, a temperature sensor can help keep your home comfortable.
- How does the Nest schedule work? The Auto Schedule feature is automatically turned on when you install the Thermostat E and Nest Learning Thermostats. With Auto Schedule, after a few days, your thermostat learns what temperatures you prefer at certain times, and it creates a temperature schedule based on those preferences. The Nest Thermostat uses the Savings Finder feature to create temperature schedules.
- How does Google Nest Hub work? Google Nest Hub has Google Assistant built-in, making it easy to check in and control Google devices in any room. You can also use Nest Hub to watch YouTube, play music, search Google, access your calendar, check outdoor air quality and more.
