It’s virtually surreal to assume that we’ve reached the purpose the place home equipment in our house will quickly want firmware updates to mend buggy device, however it seems that that’s precisely what came about with the Nest Learning Thermostat just lately.
Apparently there used to be a few kind of bug in the thermostat’s tool that used to be developing excessive battery drain, causing the tiny devices to head offline. Not in point of fact a security fear up to it is an inconvenience, a lifeless thermostat way you’re most likely now not going to harvest any of the Nest’s touted power financial savings and may just come house to an excessively chilly/scorching space.
This isn’t the primary time buggy device/hardware has plagued Nest units. A few years again, Nest’s sensible smoke detectors have been going haywire, causing the company to recall units while they got things sorted out. If CES 2016 and all of the house automation generation we noticed there wasn’t a large sufficient clue, be expecting a lot more such things as this in the longer term.
Fridge at the fritz once more? S listen a brand new device update will maintain that.
