Nest gains home access

Google-owned home automation company Nest is continuing its rapid expansion by prodding ever more companies from the appliances and smart home sector to join its open software collaboration, dubbed "Works with Nest”.

Last year, Nest had already convinced Mercedes Benz, Dropcam and Logitech to join its developer programme. At this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, the company, which was acquired by Google for USD 3.2 billion in early 2014, presented a raft of new partners from the home appliances sector, including industry heavyweights LG and Whirlpool, as well as smart lock producers August and UniKey and smart lighting specialists Philips Hue.
