Revolv, whose home hub lets you control a variety of connected devices in one app, has finally released an Android version as well as added official support for the Nest thermostat.

So this news has me wondering if should give the Revolv another test. Revolv also added support for multiple “authorized phones” so it no longer turns off that Nest if an authorized user is still home.
