Smarter than your regular doorbell
Nest’s entry isn’t just hitting the market place hot on the heels of its greatest competitor, as (Amazon-owned) Ring is by now generations into its merchandise cycle, so it’ll be fascinating to see if Nest is equipped to carve itself a market in an by now-establishing market place.
When we were briefed about the Good day, we questioned what would make a buyer pick out Good day in excess of its competitors, and a Nest spokesperson reported: I’m likely to be blunt.
