François Girodolle, head of European Product Partners at NEST, presents during the Internet of Things Event: “How the Connected Home will become more thoughtful”.
With the growing number of smart products available, solutions to unify these devices, and prices increasingly becoming more affordable to consumers, the connected home is quickly becoming a reality. But the full potential of the smart home is still to be realised. Tomorrow’s smart is the thoughtful home – a home that knows your daily routines, your wants and needs and adapts to your lifestyle. In this session, head of European product partnerships at Nest, Francois Girodolle, will discuss the full potential of the thoughtful home – a home that does more for you than you do for it.
“We are creating a home that takes care of you instead of the other way around“ – François Girodolle, NEST
