For approximately 3 billion dollar search engine giant Google bought a company called Nest. The app “Nest”, which is available in the App Store, lets you know what is behind the deal – and more. The download is free. Using your smartphone you can use the app to control the so-called Smart Home Automation.

Nest produces, among other things, heating, thermostat and smoke detectors. The app lets you establish an interconnected household. It serves as a remote control for appliances. Although Nest products are not available in all countries around the world, the app “Nest” will give you a taste of what can be expected in the coming years: Controlling your home via an app. You will be able to turn on the heat, or operate light sources. Interesting: Behind the scenes of “Nest” are almost 100 former Apple engineers, including Tony Fadell – the co-creator of the legendary iPods. What a crazy concept, to think that an ex top associate of Apple is paving the way for Google’s future.

Conclusion:
“Nest” is one of the first apps for Smart Home Automation. It offers the opportunity to control devices in your home from anywhere in the world.

Plus/Minus:
+ Minimalist app, just like the Nest products
+ Easy to use
+ A taste of what‘s to come
