According to the new FCC documents, Google seems to have a new Google Nest Thermostat in its works. As spotted by Droid Life, it could be equipped with Google’s Project Soil radar motion controls and it would be the company’s first home products.
Features of this thermostat:-
This new Google Nest Thermostat has its model name as G4CVZ as stated in the FCC documents. Besides 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.0, this device also has an additional interesting feature. That is it will be equipped with a 60GHz radar transmitter, similar to the one which has been already used by Pixel 4 for its Motion Sense gesture controls. The frequency range on this device is documented as 61-61.5 GHz, while the Pixel 4 is 58-63.5 GHz.
This was incredibly fascinating to see these Motion Sense features certainly making a lot of sense on a wall-mounted home thermostat. The capability for this thermostat to detect you when you are precisely nearby and looking at it before turning on the display. This could help you save power, and the gestures provided could be used to adjust the thermostat or swipe between the menus from farther away.
The 3rd generation Nest Learning Thermostat was released in 2015 whereas the further affordable Thermostat E was launched in 2017. These two products are quite old and both are expected for upgrades. This new Google Nest Thermostat passes this FCC recently and the company didn’t announce this new product yet. However, the company may hold a hardware event in the future and had a chance of announcing this device alongside the already announced Pixel 4A 5G and Pixel 5.
However, this recent product with awesome new features will give its best in terms of affordability and pricing for sure.
