Revolv Launches New Android and Updated iOS Apps With Official Support for Nest
BOULDER, Colo. --(Business Wire)--
Inc., the smart home solution that unifies premium smart home
automation devices from one app, has announced its new support for
Android (News - Alert) and official integration with the popular Nest Learning
Thermostat™. Additionally, the company released an updated version of
its iOS app. Both Android and iOS apps are available today in the Google (News - Alert)
Play and Apple stores, respectively, and offer an improved user
interface to more efficiently and intelligently manage your smart home
"With the success of our iOS app, we are excited to roll out Revolv on
Android to give access to additional homeowners who want to set up a
smart home," said Mike Soucie, co-founder and head of marketing at
Revolv. "Launching our Android and iOS apps and officially integrating
with Nest gets us further toward our goal of providing customers with
seamless product integration with the most popular smart home devices
while offering the easiest and best experience on the market."
As a centralized and unified smart home solution, Revolv extends the
value of individual connected products by providing cross-device control
and automation. Through Revolv's 'Works with Nest' integration,
homeowners can now set up automated actions for the Nest Thermostat
based on their location and daily schedule. Additionally, they can
access one-tp control of all their supported connected devices to
create a comfortable ambiance in any room.
For example, to help save energy, a homeowner could set up an action to
automatically turn off the house lights and turn down the temperature on
their Nest Thermostat when they're not home. This action is possible
thanks to Revolv's newly enhanced GeoSense™ technology, which knows when
the homeowner leaves the house -- and automates device control, even if
the smartphone is in his or her pocket.
There is also new support for multiple phones that uses "intelligent
occupancy" to indicate when there is someone in the home who shouldn't
be there by knowing whether authorized users are home or away.
Currently, Revolv supports close
to 100 of the most popular smart home devices and continues to add
support for a variety of devices every two to three weeks. Revolv is
available at Revolv.com,
with a 4-star rating, Smarthome.com,
at select Home Depot stores across the country and at HomeDepot.com.
