Nest Buys Home Automation Firm Revolv, Company To Discontinue Its Products

Nest has apparently just acquired home automation firm Revolv for an undisclosed figure.

If you've not heard of Revolv, the company was an all-in-one smarthome "hub" solution that wanted to operate as communication nexus for all the stuff in your house. Sprinklers, lights, door locks, stereos, TVs, you name it. If you want an example, you can watch this incredibly awkward video.

Revolv actually supported compatibility with Nest through its $300 cylinder hub thingamajig and control app.
