Nest has a lot of people scratching their heads right now.

Here's the deal: Nest recently put out an invite, asking the media to join it at a press event. The event invite specifically mentioned "popcorn" and a "comfy couch". So, most people assumed Nest wasn't going to announce another thermostat, smoke alarm, or an outdoor or indoor camera. Instead, we wondered if it could be readying a smart TV or smart light or some sort of AI-based product.

Nope, it wasn't any of those things...


When was Nest's big announcement?

Nest held an event in San Francisco on 20 September 2017. It began at 5pm UK time (9am PST/12pm EST).

What was announced?

Nest stepped up its home security efforts. 

Yep. It announced the new Nest Secure alarm system, Nest Hello video doorbell, and Nest Cam IQ outdoor security camera.

You can read all about those from here.

Apparently, its invite didn't offer up any hints; it was literally just inviting us to sit down and watch it unveil new goodies.
