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.

Our founders.

We started Nest because we wanted these things for ourselves, in our own homes.

The idea was to take the technology we had been creating – technology that powers things like your smartphone – and embed it inside important yet unloved products.

Because we all want the same things: to save energy, keep our families safe and keep an eye on what matters most. At Nest, we look at these old problems in a new way. That's what drives us. And we're just getting started.
