Starting today, the Nest Developer Program is officially open for business. And a number of ‘Works with Nest’ integrations are already up and running. Here are just a few of the ways the products you own can interact with Nest.
● LIFX: LIFX lightbulbs can work with your Nest Protect to pulse red in an emergency, which can help grab your attention and alert those who are hearing impaired. Going on vacation? Once your Nest Thermostat goes into Away mode, LIFX can make it look as if someone is home by automatically turning on and off your lights throughout the house.
● Mercedes-Benz: As you drive home, your car can let Nest know what time you’ll arrive. That way your thermostat can start heating or cooling at exactly the right moment, and your home is the perfect temperature as soon as you walk in the door.
● Whirlpool: If you’re signed up for Rush Hour Rewards with a participating energy provider, Nest can let Whirlpool know when an energy rush hour is about to happen, and your washer or dryer will delay the start of the cycle until the rush hour is over. You end up earning extra rush hour rewards and using less energy when electricity is in high demand.
● Jawbone: Your Nest Learning Thermostat knows what temperature you like your home to be in the morning and your UP24 band can tell when you wake up. Together, they can make sure your thermostat starts heating or cooling before you even get out of bed.
