LIFX works with Nest
Nest is dedicated to creating a thoughtful home: a home that takes care of the people inside it and the world around it. LIFX works with the Nest Learning Thermostat, Nest Cam and Nest Protect to help you work towards making your home a more secure and efficient place, with elegant solutions to everyday problems.

You can’t be in two places at once. When you’re on vacation, Nest will automatically turn your LIFX lights on and off making it appear like someone is home. In addition to this, Nest Cam will flash your lights on if motion is detected, to help deter would-be intruders.
You can use Nest away settings and Rush Hour Reward notifications to help save energy. Your Nest Learning Thermostat will flash your LIFX lights at the start of an energy rush hour, letting you know that your house is about to conserve peak time energy and earn you rewards. To help further savings, when your Nest Cam no longer detects motion your lights will dim to 10%. Meet the Nest Learning Thermostat >
When Nest Protect senses smoke or carbon monoxide, your LIFX lights flash red to warn you, then switch to full brightness to help you and your family exit safely.

Nest knows when the action stops. When your Nest Cam detects a lack of motion it can dim your LIFX lights to help ease the kids and you into a peaceful night’s sleep. Meet the Nest Cam >
