Nest and Amazon’s Echo Both Receive Updates

It’s a good day for you if you are an owner of Nest or Amazon’s Echo as both devices have been given more home automation capabilities. This means that the quality of your life with these devices is going to get better.

In case you are a Nest owner you do not need to worry about how your Apple Watch and automated thermostat are going to work together. Somebody finally took upon the task of updating the iOS for the company to make it compatible with Apple Watch.

Finally you will be able to control your home temperature from your Apple Watch which should have been the case quite some time ago. The update for Amazon Echo is more exciting though as you will have the option of the locking and unlocking your homes from your home automation device.

Although you will need to buy August’s locks for this sorcery to take place. If you do buy those as well then well it’s as simple as using the “alohomora” spell used by wizards in Harry Potter.

The down die to all this the additional $79 you will be spending to connect Alexa and Echo through August Connect. At the moment home automation is a luxury because of how high it costs. It will not get the true appreciation it deserves until it becomes more affordable.
