Nest, the company, died at Google I/O 2019

by Volker Weber

Ron Amadeo for Ars Technica:

The Nest ecosystem is dead. Nest accounts are dead. Nest's privacy firewall is dead.

Smart homes will continue to break. That is why we have a dumb home with a smart overlay.

What a pity. I just saw the Nest thermostats at the house of my US relatives and they are just a beautiful piece of technology.

I experience proprietary IoT standards and ecosystems as being disadvantageous in many ways. In my opinion, Smart Home platforms and devices with configurable MQTT support are the far better option. This allows to use existing hardware even after an original platform vendor or operator goes out off business. MQTT is easy and powerful, fire-wall friendly, secure (if you switch on security), open source and it is the de-facto standard for Industrial IoT already and meanwhile also widely used in many Smart Home applications.
