An article about optimizing your websites for the smart home has been updated to include a new step to ensure that they’re optimized for smart home devices.
A reader tip from the Ars Technic article on optimization suggests that a smart home user might be interested in reading a post on how to use the Nest platform to make their home more smart, but that’s not exactly how the post was written.
Instead, the user is told that “if you’re reading this and you’ve got a Nest thermostat, your smart home can’t really do much more than set your alarm, turn the lights on, and set the timer.”
The user is then told that, if the Nest is running on a low power setting, “the Nest thermoregulation is very efficient at controlling your thermostats.
You’ll notice that if you’re in the comfort zone, you’ll get better and better control of your thermoreggulation and it won’t require much power.”
The post also suggests that “setting the alarm at night can make your thermyggulation work much better, because your Nest will be set to automatically set the alarm for the night, but you’ll still need to turn off the lights, turn down the air conditioning, and turn down any other lights that are on.”
We’ve contacted Nest for comment.
We’ll update the article when we get a response.
