Honeywell Sues Nest Over Patents

by Christopher Paul on February 6, 2012

From Tech Crunch via The Loop:

“Honeywell claims the infringed patents relate to “simplified methods for operating and programming a thermostat including the use of natural language, user interfaces that facilitate programming and energy savings, a thermostat’s inner design, an electric circuit used to divert power from the user’s home electrical system to provide power to a thermostat, and controlling a thermostat with information stored in a remote location.””

Someone’s obviously worried about their business when it fights a disruptive and innovative entrant using patents.
