Nest co-founder Matt Rogers:

“The home shouldn’t be a platform war.  We’re going to be neutral. Switzerland.”

From Arstechnica.

Being a Nest owner from the pre-Google days, I’ve been waiting for Nest to open their API, and I’m glad to see it’s finally happening – and I’m even more thrilled to see that it’s so open.  As Rogers said, home automation should be platform-agnostic – no one wants a Google Home or an Apple iHome; we just want our Android devices and iProducts to work seamlessly with whatever devices we’ve chosen from whatever companies have the best stuff.
