Nest Store Selling Compatible Connected Home Products


Nest wants its online store to be a one-stop shop for your connected home.

No longer will the store just carry Nest's own connected home products. The company this week bolstered its digital store shelves with some third-party "Works with Nest"-approved products, such as LIFX Wi-Fi smart bulbs and the Philips Hue Starter Kit.

"We know this is a crowded market — more and more smart products come out every day, and it's hard to know which to buy," the Nest team wrote in a blog post. "And which will work with what you already have. So for the Nest Store, we carefully picked out the products that we love and use in our own homes."

Also now available in the Nest Store is the Rachio Smart Sprinkler Controller, the SkyBell HD WiFi Video Doorbell, and Wemo Switch, which lets you control your lighting and other small appliances from your phone.

Nest has already given the seal of approval to more than 100 compatible products as part of its Works With Nest program. The company isn't selling them all from its store just yet, but said it plans to add more soon.

Nest also this week launched a new "Time of Savings" platform for the Learning Thermostat that determines when energy costs are highest in the user's particular area, and adapts usage during those periods to help customers save cash. The new features come amidst a rather tumultuous time for Nest, however, which just lost co-founder Tony Fadell.
