Through the Works With Nest platform, the company has announced partnerships with major providers August, Misfit and Belkin WeMo, along with a host of other lesser-known manufacturers.

This means, for example, owners of the WeMo switches can use that to turn on a home fan if it senses the temperature on the Thermostat creeping up.

Those who own the August Doorbell Cam will be able to view footage from a Nest Cam within the August app.

The integration with Nest lets our Doorbell Cam and Nest Cam work together to bridge the gap between activity happening inside and outside the home, explained Jason Johnson, CEO of August.
