Nest unveils web app developer program, teams up with Control4

Nest second-generation

Despite its internet connection, Nest’s Learning Thermostat has been a closed device so far — you’ve had to rely on Nest for new features and software. The company is opening up its platform with the announcement of a developer program. Programmers will soon get to build web apps that link the thermostat to other devices and services, such as home automation equipment. Nest won’t start the program until early 2014, but it’s already partnering with Control4; eventually, all of Control4’s apps and remotes will commandeer Nest hardware. If you’re interested in growing the ecosystem, you’ll find more details at the source link.
