SAGE by Hughes Now Works with Nest

  • SAGE Brings Nest Intelligence, Security and Control to the Television

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — EchoStar Technologies L.L.C., a subsidiary of EchoStar Corporation (NASDAQ: SATS) announced today that its new SAGE™ by Hughes™ security and smart home system now works with the Nest Cam security camera, the Nest Learning Thermostat and the Nest Protect smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) alarm. By working with Nest, SAGE can expand the lineup of options available to SAGE users and bring the intelligence and convenience of Nest products to the television—all from the comfort of the user’s couch.

From the TV, customers can change the temperature of their Nest Thermostat, view animated images when Nest Cam detects motion or sound and even monitor their Nest Protect. SAGE customers can also access their Nest devices through the SAGE mobile app on iOS™ and Android™ devices. The integration enhances the homeowner’s ability to manage and control what happens in and around their home.
