Nest iOS App Updated for Upcoming Hello Video Doorbell and More

When Google first launched its assistant-enabled Google Home, many onlookers wondered why Nest, the Alphabet-owned smart home gadget maker, wasn't more closely involved with the speaker. You can lock/unlock your door by entering your custom key combination, or do so remotely via the Nest app.

You can buy the Nest Hello doorbell at Nest.com for $229, or you can find it at a variety of retailers like Best Buy, Home Depot, and Lowe's. They're releasing the Nest Hello video doorbell, the Next x Yale Lock, and the Nest Temperature Sensor. For facial recognition, the user needs to have a subscription to the Nest Aware cloud recording service, which starts at $5 per month. With the Nest Temperature Sensor, you can let your Nest thermostat know which room should be a certain temperature at a certain time of day.

Available in Satin Nickel, Oil Rubbed Bronze, and Polished Brass, the Nest x Yale replaces the traditional key lock on your door a keypad-equipped one. Nest has developed this lock-in collaboration with Yale.

Nest adds their new lock and doorbell to an already-burgeoning collection of connected smart home devices. Create custom passcodes for people you trust and decide when they work, so not everyone can get into your home at all hours. Instead of reading the current temperature from your Nest thermostat (again, mine is on the other side of the house), it gathers temperature data from the sensor (which would be placed in my office) and adjusts the thermostat accordingly. So if you're home and want to know when your spouse comes home from work, the door sensors will chime when they walk in. Or if you forget to lock the door yourself, the app can do the job for you.




The Nest x Yale is also available for purchase right now for $249 on its own or $279 for it and the Nest Connect.

Finally, Google is taking pre-orders for a new temperature sensor for Nest thermostats. Google Assistant had a hiccup or two in the Cam IQ, but was able to work pretty well to control the Secure. With these products, Nest has become one of the most comprehensive smart home and home security manufacturers.

Most homes aren't the same temperature in every room.
