While Invision UK and RGB Communications are most commonly associated with Nest products in the custom install sector, the company is making a big push in selling directly to customers. As part of that push, Nest has revealed that it will be adding a whole host of Works With Nest products to its online store.
There are over 100 Works with Nest products currently on the market, although the Nest online store won’t be listing all of them from the outset. Instead, the company has decided to list a select handful, while continuing to add more as time goes by.
The current line-up includes:
LIFX Color 1000 – 2 Pack Starter Kit
LIFX WiFi smart bulbs allow users to create and tailor their lighting from anywhere. When Nest Cam senses motion in one of the Nest Cam’s Activity Zones, the LIFX lights can light up to deter intruders. And when Nest Protect senses smoke or CO, the LIFX lights can blink, then switch to full brightness for emergency illumination.
Philips Hue Starter Kit A19
Use a smartphone or tablet to control the lights while at home or away. Philips Hue can turn off automatically when Nest is in Away mode, flash red when Nest Protect senses smoke and turn on when Nest Cam detects motion.
Rachio Smart Sprinkler Controller
The Rachio Smart Sprinkler Controller and App makes running sprinklers easy and claims to save water. When you connect to Nest, users can see how much water they have saved in their Nest Home Report. And, if the Nest Protect detects smoke, Rachio can cycle the sprinklers for protection.
SkyBell HD WiFi Video Doorbell
See live video of the front door with the SkyBell HD WiFi Video Doorbell. SkyBell HD can automatically record video at the front door when Nest Cam detects motion or sound while the homeowner is away. When Nest Protect detects smoke or CO, SkyBell HD can blink red so users know it might not be safe to go inside.
The Wemo Switch brings control of lighting and other small appliances right to a user’s phone. Nest can tell Wemo when the user is home or away, so the fan can turn off to save energy when the house is empty. Or the lights can automatically turn on when the homeowners walk in the door.
Currently the Works With Nest store is rolling out to users in the US, with the company not revealing whether a similar online portal will be made available in the UK.
