Family and location awareness expands the accuracy and simplicity of Nest-powered homes
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Life360, the leading Family Network, announced today that the company is working on integration with the Nest Learning Thermostat™. Nest customers will be able to fully automate climate control based on family and location awareness, making climate control simple and reliable. The Life360 integration with Nest will be available for download starting next month.
With Nest and Life360, climate control is automatic and can be turned on or off based on when family members leave or arrive home. The Life360 integration with Nest means your thermostat can adjust automatically based on when the last family member leaves and when you’re close to home, allowing users to stay comfortable and save energy at the same time. Life360’s geofencing capabilities also expands the capability to detect physical presence outside of the home by responding to pre-set triggers when family members leave work or school.
“The big promise of the Internet of Things is the potential to simplify our daily lives, and magically make the core family assets like the home and car smarter, providing families greater peace of mind,” said Chris Hulls, CEO and founder of Life360. “Where it gets really exciting is when we layer on the power of location awareness and communication, helping the home understand things like when the family is away versus sleeping, and respond accordingly making it smarter and more efficient. Our integration with Nest is a great example of how Life360 is improving the way families live their daily lives.”
With family and location awareness, households can automate critical daily tasks like arming the alarm system, locking doors and now setting the thermostat based on when the last family members leave from or arrive to the home. Partnerships with companies like BMW, ADT, SmartThings, and Samsung are positioning Life360 to become the hub for the connected family, offering ways for families to integrate family and location awareness into their smart homes, cars and wearable devices. The Life360 integration for Nest will be available on Android and iPhone.
Life360 is the leading Family Network available for Android, iPhone and Windows Phone. Using proprietary location-based technology, Life360 processes over 1 billion location requests per day and enables families to share their locations, know when someone needs help and communicate easily with in-app messaging. The app operates in a convenient and secure way reducing friction and offering peace of mind to make family life easier.
