On June 18, 2019, a momentous occasion occurred in the world of home automation. The Nest smart home website was shut down and all products were added to the Google Store, creating Google Nest. The old Nest website left a message that warmed our smart home hearts that confirms what we’ve been saying and feeling about home automation for the past several years.

Google and Nest Combine for your Smart Home

For too long, the smart home hasn’t been very smart. It’s complicated to set up and manage, with a lot of different devices that don’t work well together. So, we’re simplifying things and bringing together all Nest and Google Home products under one roof. Introducing Google Nest. Welcome to the helpful home.

This is it. This is the seamless integration between home automation and smart home products that we’ve all been desperately searching for. With Google Assistant leading the charge with, in our opinion, the best AI assistant software on the market combined with Nest’s robust selection of smart home products, you are certain to have a seamless experience with setup and usage of this home automation system. Better than any other system currently available. 

As we all know, the Achilles heel of the home automation industry has been the lack of full integration between AI assistants and smart home products leaving consumers confused about purchasing as well as frustrated with in-depth and difficult setups. With this launch of Google Nest, that is gone, and consumers have more than 25 smart home products that are fully integrated with Google’s AI assistant software (Google Assistant). 

Things you can now seamlessly control with Google Assistant via Google Nest:

  • Thermostats
  • Video Doorbell
  • Smoke detectors
  • Video monitors
  • Smart locks
  • Alarm system
  • Smart lights
  • Video streaming
