Aug. 13, 2014: Home Automation App Offers Support for Nest Thermostat
Enables Users to Quickly Set Up Automated Actions for the Home
BOULDER, Colo. — Revolv Inc., a home automation app developed to unify control of smart home devices from a single app, has announced its new support for Android and official integration with the Nest Learning Thermostat™. In addition, the company released an updated version of its iOS app. Both the Android and iOS apps are said to offer an improved user interface to more efficiently manage smart home devices.
“With the success of our iOS app, we are excited to roll out Revolv on Android to give access to additional homeowners who want to set up a smart home,” said Mike Soucie, co-founder and head of marketing at Revolv. “Launching our Android and iOS apps and officially integrating with Nest gets us further toward our goal of providing customers with seamless product integration with the most popular smart home devices while offering the easiest and best experience on the market.”
As a centralized and unified smart home solution, Revolv said it extends the value of individual connected products by providing cross-device control and automation. Through its “Works with Nest” integration, homeowners can now set up automated actions for the Nest thermostat based on their location and daily schedule. Additionally, they can access one-tap control of all their supported connected devices.
For example, to help save energy, a homeowner could set up an action to automatically turn off the house lights and turn down the temperature on their Nest Thermostat when they’re not home. This action is possible thanks to Revolv’s newly enhanced GeoSense™ technology, which knows when the homeowner leaves the house and automates device control, even if the smartphone is in his or her pocket.
There is also new support for multiple phones using “intelligent occupancy” to indicate when there is someone in the home who shouldn’t be there by knowing whether authorized users are home or away.
Currently, Revolv said it supports close to 100 smart home devices and continues to add support for more. Revolv is available at Revolv.com, Amazon.com, Smarthome.com, at select Home Depot stores across the country and at HomeDepot.com.
