“Nest Thermostat” by Nest Labs


The Nest Thermostat was the very first product that introduced me to the world of the Internet of Things. A product developed by Nest Labs, acquired by Google in 2014 is a smart thermostat that learns about the user’s preferences in terms of their temperature in their home. It also learns when the users are not at home, and reduces the energy consumption to save money. However, this proposes one of the largest problems in smart products, which is security. Imagine if someone hacks into the Nest Thermostat and learns specific times when the user is not home. Things could get disastrous. How can we ensure that the value of these types of products in our home outweigh the safety concerns?
