Control4 Update on Nest Integration

Control4 announced our support of Nest’s Developer Program and API initiative at CEDIA Expo in September 2013 and we remain intent on releasing a driver to integrate the Nest Learning Thermostat with our home automation platform.
With the Nest API now ready for production deployments, we plan to add Nest integration to an upcoming Control4 development, test, and release cycle of our automation platform. The next Control4 OS release, version 2.6, was already in an extensive External Beta, with hundreds of sites, well before the production release of the Nest APIs so our intent is to include our Nest integration-driver in a subsequent OS release to 2.6, along with other new functionality.
During the upcoming development and testing cycle of the Nest integration, we want to ensure homeowner preferences, behaviors, comfort, and security across a whole automated system, including external sensors, security systems, window shades, access gates, and door locks to ensure that all work together according to the automation preferences desired by each homeowner.
