Nest is best known for its “Learning Thermostat,” which figures out users’ daily habits. For example, the device “learns” not to blast cool air through the house on a hot summer’s day during the hours everyone is at work.
Fadell repeated that message at Monday’s conference, saying that the data Nest collects “is all about our products and improving them.” Panel moderator Laurie Segall of CNNMoney asked Fadell if users could expect, for example, ads for sweaters if they tend to crank up the heat. Fadell denied that that type of integration is in the works, but he stopped short of promising it would never happen.
