Nest intros new smart products for the front door

We've been waiting for Nest to upgrade its thermostat with this functionality for years, but aside from a new budget version of the Nest Thermostat called the Nest Thermostat E, the company has recently been much more focused on its security products, including cameras like the Nest Cam IQ and a home security system. The doorbell will be able to alert users when someone's at the door, and will also be able to issue canned responses if you are unable to open the door in a timely manner.

We got a short demo of how the suite of Nest products worked together, and while it was a controlled environment, things went pretty seamlessly. With the Nest x Yale lock, users can have their Nest Secure alarm system arm or disarm automatically. Nest, of course, is now a part of the Google hardware team, which means they've baked in Google Assistant and Google Home support now.

For anyone who is interested, the Nest Hello is available now for $229. The x Yale Lock can also lock itself when it detects that nobody is home by using the Home/Away Assist feature. You can create passcodes and unlock the door remotely.

Broadcom promises not to sell security assets
Once the move is done, Broadcom could argue that CFIUS does not have jurisdiction, the second expert said. The newspaper said Intel's anxious about the power a combined Broadcom and Qualcomm would hold.

Like rival smart doorbells, the Nest Hello has a camera that shows homeowners a live video feed who's at their door through the Nest App, with motion sensors that monitor nearby movements and sounds. It differs from other smart locks in that it doesn't have a backup keyhole, which Nest is pushing as an advantage as you won't have any keys to lose in the first place. So Nest Hello sends you an alert when someone's there, even if they don't ring. Nest owners can let their thermostat know what room should be the most comfortable. You may even want certain rooms, like those with babies, to be a certain temperature. And your Nest thermostat will make sure that room is just how you like it.

At present, because the Nest thermostat only takes a temperature reading from a single location, it can play havok with a house that experiences large variations in heating. Do note that this product is in the pre-order phase; these are expected to begin shipping out in April. Deals start at $217 for a 3rd generation Nest.
