Nest just released a new ad, and let me tell you: there are some issues with the content. So you see this teenage girl in a prom dress ring a Nest doorbell, and a teen couple walk out the front door. The two girls walk to a car, as a low robotic voice beckons the boy and proceeds to give him a fatherly speech about being a gentleman. Turns out, the voice is actually coming from the doorbell and belongs to his doctor dad who is at work at a hospital. Again, there are some issues.

Everybody seemed excited about Nest's big event on Wednesday. New products! Several of them! New direction! Much needed for a company plagued with security flaws, product defects, and loads of other problems. But the most innovative thing that Nest announced was an alarm. Literally, a box that makes a loud noise. It's called the Nest Guard, and it does not feel like a comeback.
Overnight, Nest -- which just launched into Australia with the Nest Cam and Nest Protect -- announced a suite of security products, like a smart home doorbell and door monitoring system. They're not coming to Australia straight away at least, but it should be a sign for Aussies considering a Nest gadget or two that the smart home ecosystem is expanding.
