How to Make Your Home Both Smart and Secure

Can we all agree that some of the latest smart products have gone a little over-the-top? Do we really need microwaves, dental floss dispensers, and water filters that connect to the internet? (Yes, those really exist!) Even smart products that sound like they’ll be worthwhile often end up tucked in the back of the closet after a few months.

But if we push aside the smart wine bottles and smart jump ropes (Yes, those exist, too!), we find that there are actually a number of new smart products that can truly make a difference in our daily lives. Some of the best of these come from Nest.

Introducing Nest Secure

A functional smart product revolutionizing home security.

Nest, founded in 2010 by Apple alums, has grown by leaps and bounds since being purchased by Google in 2014. The company’s first major product release was the Learning Thermostat, which keeps track of the habits and temperature desires of a home’s occupants and uses that data to optimize its function and conserve energy. Nest has also put out smart door cameras and smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. It has come to be known for its elegant designs, innovation, and functionality.

In September of this year, Nest debuted its most important product yet: Secure, a home security system. Integration with smart phones and tablets, motion-detecting path lights, and silent deactivation options are just a few of the innovations Secure has to offer.

Nest Secure + TreeHouse

A perfect match in delivering innovative home security.

TreeHouse, the go-to spot for sustainable building, environmentally-friendly renovations, and clean, sophisticated design, has just announced an exciting partnership with Nest to offer consultations for and installation of its Secure system.

The process of putting in a new home security system or replacing an out-of-date one can be overwhelming, but the professionals at TreeHouse have the experience and knowledge to help clients decide exactly what they need. Plus, they can typically complete a same-day installment of Nest Secure.
