You can now control Nest devices from your Gear devices

13 December 2016

Smartphones have been the primary control devices for home IoT devices like thermostats, smoke alarms, and security cameras. Now, smartwatches are slowly replacing them and hence making one less reason to take out your phone from your pocket. With the growing demand, TecAce Software made this possible for Nest users with the launch of Gear for Nest last month.

The Gear for Nest app has made its for the Gear S2 and the Gear S3 smartwatches. There is also a Gear for Nest Watchface to with it. The app lets users control thermostat’s temperature and set heating and cooling temperatures and activate eco mode. You can also set the different operating modes: home and away status of Nest products.

The Samsung Gear S2 and S3’s unique rotating bezel are a testament to what would happen when art and technology blend together in perfection. The rotating bezel makes it really convenient to do most of the tasks which would be rather difficult to pull off on the small touchscreen of smartwatches.13
