About the vendor and its products

Nest, which is owned by Google, started out producing a smart thermostat. Gradually, the product offerings have expanded with a number of smart home categories (and lately, the nest brand has been integrated into the Google branding). Not all of these are for sale or suitable for use in Europe, but the product selection spans:

  • Smart thermostats, which come in a couple of versions

  • Security cameras, these come in versions for indoor and outdoor use and with features like face recognition

  • Doorbell, under the name of Nest Hello, also this with face recognition  and other smart features

  • Smoke detector, Nest Protect, which can be combines with a camera to form a security package

  • More extensive security system, Nest Secure, with different components

The Nest products are controlled from a dedicated Nest app and are otherwise compatible with Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, and IFTTT, but not Apple Home (there is, however, a product, Starling Home Hub, which gives Apple Home support, in practice via a device that implements Homebridge-plugin for Nest).

This is a base station for Google Home, with a rather nice screen. In our case, it is primarily a digital photo frame, for which it works well, even though the screen is smaller than on the iPad we used before.
