Nest unveils video doorbell, Yale smart lock, and temperature sensor

Last month, Amazon announced that it was acquiring smart doorbell company Ring while Philips recently debuted a new series of outdoor smart lights.

Google is rolling out a pair of smart products through its Nest division that it hopes will end up on millions of front doors.

It's a shame too, as despite this lack of zonal control, Nest's thermostat has an astoundingly simple interface that's an absolute pleasure to use. You can find out if yours will work by using this page. You can see who's there from the Nest app and have a conversation. Create custom passcodes for people you trust and decide when they work, so not everyone can get into your home at all hours.

To get all of that setup, you'll want to hit the link below as it has all of the step-by-step instructions.

The Nest x Yale Lock doesn't sport a fancy camera or speaker like the Nest Hello, but does have a keypad so you can still get inside your home if you lose or forget your keys. As you might have guessed, Nest partnered with Yale for this lock, and it's integrated with Nest's ecosystem.

Yikes! More than 90% of bottled water contains tiny pieces of plastic
Last year, an Orb Media investigation revealed the presence of microscopic plastic fibers in global tap water samples. This interface plays a key role, and this is why chemical analysis of plastics is important, Science Daily reports.

Google's smart lock also automatically locks itself, so you don't have to worry about yourself or a family member remembering to lock the door behind them. You can also link up your Google Home to the Nest Hello, so when someone rings the doorbell your Google Home will pipe up and say "Someone's at your door". It requires the Nest Guard (part of Nest's Secure alarm system), or Nest Connect (a range extender for the Nest Secure system).

Nest Hello can tell the homeowners someone is at the door even before the doorbell rings. Nest owners can let their thermostat know what room should be the most comfortable.

The temperature sensor works by being placed on a shelf or a wall, where it can monitor the temperature in a given room. And your Nest thermostat will make sure that room is just how you like it. Nest will ship the sensor starting April. The sensor needs to be set up with one of the latest generation Nest thermostats (Nest Learning Thermostat or Nest Thermostat E)-older versions will not be supported by the device.

The Nest Hello, Nest x Yale Lock, and Nest Temperature Sensor are all live on Nest's site.
