MILWAUKEE — The York brand of Johnson Controls has partnered with Google Nest Pro to donate smart home products in mortgage-free homes gifted to veterans through the non-profit organization, Building Homes for Heroes.
Through the newly established partnership with Google, York contractors will donate their time to install various Google Nest products into the veterans’ homes to help create a safe, connected home they can live comfortably in despite their injuries. Google will be donating a variety of equipment to different Building Homes for Heroes veterans, including the Nest Learning Thermostat, Nest Protect smoke and carbon monoxide detector, Nest Hello Doorbell, Nest x Yale Locks, Nest Minis, and Nest Hub Max.
“We’re incredibly grateful to have the opportunity to provide heating and cooling to nearly 120 injured men and women who have served our country over the past eight years through Building Homes for Heroes,” said Doug Schuster, vice president and general manager, Ducted Systems, Johnson Controls. “The new partnership with Google Nest Pro will give these injured veterans and their families even more customized amenities in their new connected homes.”
“Building Homes for Heroes is devoted to building better and brighter lives for our veterans who served and sacrificed so much for our great country,” said Andy Pujol, founder and CEO, Building Homes for Heroes. “This is something we could not accomplish without the support of like minded, patriotic companies like Johnson Controls for the last seven years, and our newest partner in Google Nest, to provide our heroes with a home that is beautified and customized for their needs. What a beautiful way to thank our heroic servicemen and women.”
