Smarter Eastbrook Homes
The Latest in Smart Home Technology
In the last decade, we have seen incredible technological advancements bring amazing products, new conveniences, and improved safety into our lives. Those advances have also found their way into the home building industry.
Smart Home technology allows homeowners to have better control over their security and safety, with smarter control over their environment. We are excited to offer smart home technology as an included feature when you build or buy with Eastbrook Homes.
Your new home will come with these Google Nest products: Nest Learning Thermostat, Nest Hello video doorbell, Nest Hub, and Nest Protect. Explore what these Nest products offer to your new home experience.
*April 2021: If you’re currently building with Eastbrook, please talk to your Construction Manager about what products will be in your home.
Nest Hub provides help at a glance in any room at home. Always see your best and latest shots from Google Photos. Plus, view and control your compatible connected devices from a single dashboard. Simply use your voice to watch YouTube and play songs from YouTube Music*. You can even get your calendar, commute, answers and more – just ask Google.
*Subscriptions may be required to access certain music and video content. Google Nest Hub is optimized for selected music and video services only.
Nest Learning Thermostat
Just turn it up and down. The Nest Learning Thermostat learns the temperatures you like and creates a custom schedule for your home. Nest Learning Thermostat automatically turns itself down after you leave so you’re not heating or cooling an empty home. You can control it from anywhere using your phone, tablet or laptop. And Energy History lets you see how much energy you use and why. In independent studies, Nest thermostats saved an average of 10% to 12% on heating bills and 15% on cooling bills. That means it can pay for itself in under two years.*
*Individual savings are not guaranteed.
Know more, worry less. Nest Protect looks for fast-burning ﬁres, slow, smoldering ﬁres and invisible carbon monoxide. It speaks up to tell you what the problem is and where it is. It can also give you a friendly Heads-Up before it has to sound the alarm and you can hush it with your phone. In case you’re not home, Nest Protect alerts your phone when the alarm goes off or the batteries run low. It also gives you peace of mind by testing itself over 400 times a day and showing you everything’s working with a quick green glow when you turn off the lights. And it looks after your family for up to 10 years.
*Mobile alerts require working internet and Wi-Fi.
Nest Hello lets you know who’s there, so you never miss a visitor or a package. It can tell the difference between a person and a thing, then alert you – even if someone doesn’t ring the bell. With a Google Nest Aware subscription, it can also tell you if it’s a person you know, or a stranger.* And the camera captures a bigger picture, so you can see a package on the ground or a person head to toe, in crystal clear detail. You’ll also hear everything loud and clear thanks to HD Talk and Listen. And because Google Nest Hello is wired, it streams 24/7, so you can check in anytime.
*Some features, including mobile notifications, remote control, video streaming and video recording, require working internet and Wi-Fi. Familiar face alerts not available on cameras used in Illinois.
