The protocol is called Weave. For those who are connecting it to Google, it's not the same as Google's Weave.
Nest Weave will permit devices around your home to impart instructions directly (with the Nest application) instead of depending on the cloud.
So far, anything that matched with Nest items like the Thermostat, Protect or new Nest Cam are expected to cross your home WiFi system and the web.
Weave will give them a chance to talk directly, which makes a more power effective and solid lattice system.
Nest is also partnering with Google on its Weave platform, however it is not clear how or if that will be joined with Nest's Weave.
Products that use the Weave convention will have a new "Works with Nest" identification so you will have the authority to connect it and converse with the Nest ecosystem consequently.
You will find Weave in things like light bulbs, door locks, and security systems. You will need to have at least one Nest product for this to matter.
For example, the newly announced Yale Linus connected door lock will be controllable from the Nest app and be able to activate your Nest Cam when the door is opened.
You'll start seeing the Works with Nest stickers soon, and the company is planning to launch its own store to highlight these products.
