Google’s Nest Adds 15 New Partners, including Philips Hue and Lutron
Nest has been steadily expanding their services through their ‘Works with Nest’ program, teaming up with other hardware and software companies to bring extra functionality and smarts to your home, and convenience to your thermostat.
The Google owned company has announced the addition of fifteen new Nest partners across a handful of segments.
Perhaps the most recognizable new partner to the smart home enthusiasts out there, is Philips. Philips has a line of color changing light bulbs, called Hue, that can now be controlled by your Nest thermostat and Protect smoke alarm. A simple use is to flash the lights in the house when the smoke alarm goes off, but I suppose you could tie the colour of the Hue lighting to the temperature of the home, just for fun.
