The arena remote home monitoring and control is gaining momentum and that might well be accelerated by the acquistion of MyEnery by Nest. Originally called Earth, MyEnergy launched its online dashboard in 2009 as one of the first energy monitoring solutions. They provide users with information on how much electricity, water, and natural gas they use and how much they spend on these.
“Giving our customers more in-depth access and analysis of their energy usage has always been part of the Nest vision,” said Tony Fadell, Nest founder and CEO said in a released statement today. “We’ve made great strides in the past year and a half; by bringing MyEnergy into the Nest family, we can reach our goals even faster. The MyEnergy team is incredibly like-minded and we’ve already begun working with them to find ways to integrate their technology into Nest products.”
Nest produce a smart thermostat which can be controlled from your phone via an app. As a iPhone app developer we’re always excited to see innovations like this pushing the technology forward. The mobile app developers in Los Angeles i’m sure will be looking to get involved with interested hardware project like this.
