Products for a more thoughtful home

At Nest (now Google Nest), we aimed to create products for a more thoughtful home. I led design on multiple cross-platform features, including how Nest products should behave when you're home vs. away, and how to accommodate new roommates. I also ran early design explorations into future products.

Family accounts

When the Nest app launched, it only supported one account per home. If users wanted to give someone else access to their Nest products, they had to share their account and password. Family Accounts revamped that experience and made it possible for multiple users to share a home together, adding different types of access as well as support for new products like the security system, Nest Secure.

Home & Away

A core Nest feature that determines what the products should be doing, depending on whether people are at home or away. Logic and UX were overhauled to support new Nest Secure products.
