Matt Rogers Nest’s founder and head of Engineering, has today announced that the company has now opened up its Nest Weave protocol and made it available to other developers for them to design and create a variety of different applications.
The availability of the Nest Weave protocol allows developers to expand the smart home even further and connect to other devices such as lighting, video systems, locks and other peripherals around the home. Watch the video below to learn more.
Nest explains a little more about Nest Weave and how it can be used by developers to create additional connections with the hardware or applications.
Nest Weave lets devices talk directly to each other and to Nest. And because it’s reliable, compact and secure, it works great for all kinds of products – like a lightbulb that needs to turn on and off without any lag time, or a door lock that runs on battery power, or a security system that needs to work even if Wi-Fi goes down.
Works with Nest goes way beyond our cloud API and Nest Weave. Over the years, we’ve built a connected home platform that works not just for our camera, thermostat, and smoke and CO alarm, but for all kinds of products. Whether you want to make an app, hardware product or both, you can pick and choose whatever you need: an operating system, communication protocol, cloud services, user accounts, security and more.
