Capitol, the consumer electronics distribution company, has expanded its Works with Nest category include 31 products.
Once users identify the Works with Nest integration they would like to use, they can go to the Works with Nest section of the product’s app and login with their Nest account to authorize the connection.
Among the Works with Nest products Capitol distributes is SkyBell HD, a smart doorbell camera that sends a live video feed to the owner’s smartphone or tablet. Users can turn Nest Cam on or off through the SkyBell app and if Nest Cam detects sound or motion while in Away mode, it will tell SkyBell HD to turn on and start recording. Additionally, if Nest Protect detects smoke or carbon monoxide, SkyBell HD will blink red to indicate it is not safe to enter the house.
“Works with Nest is the most comprehensive and compelling connected home platform today,” said Curt Hayes, Capitol’s president and CFO. “All the developments in smart home technologies don’t mean anything if consumers find it frustrating to sync their connected devices. Works with Nest is an important key in alleviating these challenges with products that play well together as they become essential to consumers’ lifestyles.”
