What's coming next from Nest on smart home tech
Nest is working on modernized and cheaper versions of its self-learning smart home products that are expected to hit the market as soon as next year, reports Bloomberg. They include:
- Cheaper version of its staple iPhone-esque thermostat, which adjusts the temperature based on usage patterns, in addition to new remote sensors that will let users control the temperature of individual rooms.
- "End-to-end" home security alarm system, which would allow the homeowner to approve entry for a specific person.
- 2G version of its indoor security camera, that could potentially identify specific people in the frame.
- Digital doorbell system featuring a camera, so a resident could see the person they're allowing to enter.
