Whirlpool Corp. is integrating some appliances with Nest devices through the Nest Developer Program.

As a participant in the "Works with Nest" Program, Whirlpool Corporation will leverage Nest application programming interfaces (APIs) to create a connected home.

Whirlpool brand and Nest took their first step in their collaboration with a "Works with Nest" washer and dryer that integrates with the Nest Learning Thermostat. The appliances are available online to purchase now at The Home Depot. The laundry pair connects with the Nest Learning Thermostat to leverage Nest's Home and Away modes. Both the washer and dryer can keep clothes fresh if a cycle ends while the consumer is not home. The dryer can switch into a slightly longer, more energy-efficient cycle if the consumer is away. In addition, for people who are enrolled in Nest's Rush Hour Rewards program through a participating energy provider, the washer and dryer can automatically delay the start of a cycle during high-demand energy periods.

Consumers can connect their Nest account to the laundry pair through a Whirlpool Smart Appliance App available on the Google Play and App store.
