Google / Nest Dealer Program Unveiled At ISC West

Author: Ethan Ace, Published on Apr 21, 2015

A year after Dropcam's puzzling appearance at ISC West 2014, now-parent company Google/Nest is back, marketing its new Nest Pro dealer program. 

Nest had their own big, wooden, nest-like 20'x20' booth near the end of the show floor, perhaps only coincidentally near other home automation providers such as Ring, Doorbot, and the Z-Wave alliance.

We talked to Nest at ISC West and in this note we take a look at what this partner program includes and its potential impact.
