Nest is ready to take over your house. I don’t mean a home invasion, I mean take over thinking about your house/office for you. Nest is a company that provides improved versions of fire/carbon monoxide detectors and thermostats. These smart gadgets are self programming to learn your patterns of usage. They can help people save money and keep them safe at the office and at home. Google acquired Nest on February 12, 2014 for $3.2 billion.
Programming conventional thermostats can be difficult and time consuming. Unfortunately, not taking time to set up this device can be a be very expensive mistake. Once the device is installed users are instructed to adjust their thermostat the same way they would with a conventional thermostat. Nest learns your patterns and adjusts temperature to match you and help save money. The “Auto-Away” system knows if you are present and can turn down the heat/air conditioning while you are at work and turn it back on just before you return home. The thermostat comes with an app that lets you control your device from anywhere. Nest also provides energy usage reports that detail how adjustments to temperature increased or decreased total energy consumption. “Airwave” technology cuts AC runtime when the humidity in your house is not high to help with efficiency. Nest claims that it can reduce energy consumption by 20%. Right now the device costs $250. If you are heating a large office or home then there is very little doubt that Nest would be a good purchase.

Do you hate waving a towel near your fire detector every time you cook? Do you pull the batteries out of your device to avoid hearing sound wave frequencies capable of exploding eardrums?

With Nest you do need to choose between your life and your hearing. Nest’s fire detector warns you before it is about to go off and gives you the option to disable with a quick wave of your hand. Nest can be programmed to know which room it is in. It will alert you if there is smoke in another room. It will identify the source of the problem. This device currently costs $129. These innovations will improve the quality of your life and safety of your office and home.
