A new report has emerged stating that Nest is currently working on a whole new line of products. One of the main barriers keeping many families from upgrading their homes appliances with smart appliances is the high cost. Everyone has a thermostat, light switches, and the like, but converting those to devices with a wifi connection that can easily be controlled from your phone is cost prohibitive in many cases.
Nest is currently working on a thermostat that will be more affordable costing less than $200. The current 3rd Gen Nest will set you back $250 so this is good news for those considering alternative connected thermostats just to save money. There is apparently already a prototype of the new device which does not include the metal ring.
Nest is also working on a security system. This system may include a door bell with security camer similar to Ring. The system will likely also include a code keypad, and door and window sensors as well as a fob for your keyring. Unfortunately we have no time frame for the system's release so you may want to start saving your pennies now as this may take a while to make it to market.
