Nest’s mission is to reinvent unloved but important devices in the home such as thermostats and smoke alarms. Since its launch in 2011, the Nest Learning Thermostat has been a consistent best seller–and the recently launched Protect (Smoke + CO Alarm) has had rave reviews.
Nest wurde von dem Ex-Applemitarbeiter Tony Fadell mitgegründet. Fadell wird als einer der ‚Väter‘ des iPods gehandelt.
Fadell, a well-respected figure who co-founded Nest along with former Apple software exec Matt Rogers, said in a statement that Nest “will be even better placed to build simple, thoughtful devices that make life easier at home, and that have a positive impact on the world” with Google’s support.
