Nest is home.

We love home. It’s the best place in the world. But not everything inside our homes is lovable. There are things that beep at us; fail without warning; keep us in the dark. There are things that we’ve learned to ignore.

We think that they should do more.

Nest is focused on making simple, human, delightful things. That’s how we’re creating the thoughtful home: a home that takes care of the people inside it and the world around it.

Nest. From the beginning.

We’re just warming up.

And there’s already a lot to talk about.
