The day that the Nest thermostat works with all of your old-school Crestron and Control4 gear has finally arrived. At the CEDIA trade show in Denver on Tuesday, the posh thermostat provider said that it has integrated with Dropcam, which Google acquired this year, as well as with Universal Remote (URC), RTI, Crestron and Control4. As one would expect, the Dropcam integration uses the thermostat’s Away setting to trigger the camera to go into motion-sensing mode, while the integration with the other firms lets you control your Nest from their remotes. I’m still waiting for the Google integrations myself.
