Smart thermostat company Nest today announced three new colors for its flagship product, the Nest Learning Thermostat, now coming in white, black, and copper, in addition to the traditional stainless steel variant. The new colors are said to be available for a limited time only, but Nest didn't specify for how long they'd continue to go on sale. The purpose of introducing more colors and finishes was to help Nest "fit into every home."

Additionally, Nest revealed that the Nest Cam Outdoor is now available for $199 for customers to purchase in the United States, with an expected launch date sometime in October for those in Europe. The company is bolstering all of its camera products -- Nest Outdoor Cam, Nest Indoor Cam, and the company-owned Dropcam -- with a new software feature called "Sightline," coming to the Nest app.

Sightline is a new app feature that shows you what Nest Cam has seen and lets you speed through days of recorded video in seconds. It pulls out key moments automatically so you don’t waste time digging through footage. Looking for the moment someone opened the gate two days ago? No problem.

Person alerts are also changing the game. If you have Nest Aware, Nest Cam can now tell if the activity it’s seeing is a tree swaying or someone coming in your house. So if it sees a person, you get a special alert. Nest Cam can even tell you if it’s sure it’s a person, or just suspects it is.

With Sightline, Nest users will be able to quickly scrub through large amounts of footage in seconds, and the app is even able to decipher and showcase "key moments" in a recording so users don't have to waste time digging through footage. The app also allows for free 3 hour video history for anyone, even those not on a Nest Aware subscription, and hassle-free "time travel" controls so you can jump to a recorded moment in the past with ease.

Can someone clue me in on HomeKit compatibility w/ Nest?

I hate that Google owns this company and will likely keep me from buying one.
Negative.

They were removed from Apple Stores because they have stopped supporting Apple's ongoing API and technologies.

I'm not sure why it's even being advertised as news on this site. Nest is more Android centric now since the Google buyout.

Nice to see some different colors available, though, how is the company doing these days with all the hubbub and shakeups at the top over the last couple of years? I stayed away from buying one because of the uncertain future of the company and potential support going forward.
They're not doing great. Sales have slowed a lot.

As you said, may be wise to stay away for a bit. If they shut down or stop supporting any product, it's now worthless. No controlling your thermostat without their servers up and running.

It's not HomeKit compatible and very likely never will be.

Nest wants this product to “fit into every home,” yet is offering the various colors “for a limited time only?” It seems the freshman marketing team is running the company.

Lol, look at that outdoor nestcam. That's hilarious that they made the cable just hang out of the front of the camera, as if they were trying to make it look as ugly and insecure as possible. How many of these are going to be torn off of walls and snipped before Nest changes their design?

Agreed. Without HomeKit, nest isn't even a consideration for iOS users so I'm not sure why MR keeps reporting on their products.
