Call to Action: Turn Down the Heat!

Call to Action: Turn Down the Heat!

A 2013 report by the World Bank projects the likely course of climate change, outlines potential environmental impacts, and explains how they will affect human populations. Damage to the environment threatens food supplies and livelihoods in parts of Asia and Africa that depend on agriculture. In response, the World Bank has begun to invest in solutions to mitigate negative effects.


How to Use Your Nest Thermostat as a Motion Detector

Craig Lloyd

While your Nest Thermostat is obviously meant for adjusting the temperature in your home, it can pull double duty and also act as a motion detector of sorts. Here’s how to set it up.

The Nest Thermostat has a built-in motion sensor that it uses for determining whether or not there’s someone home, allowing it to turn down the heat or the air conditioner accordingly if it detects that no one is home. It’s also used for activating the screen whenever someone walks by, displaying the current temperature that it’s set to and letting you quickly take a glance.

However, you can use this motion sensor for more than just that, thanks to a service called IFTTT (which stands for “If This Then That”). IFTTT uses “recipes” to allow users to connect all sorts of products and services together that you normally wouldn’t be able to connect, like having every new Facebook photo that you’re tagged in be automatically uploaded to your Dropbox. We’ll be using IFTTT with your Nest to send you a notification when your Nest Thermostat detects motion.
