Revolv, whose home hub lets you control a variety of connected devices in one app, has finally released an Android version as well as added official support for the Nest thermostat. When I tested Revolv, I liked the hardware, but found the software only okay. I also couldn’t access the geo-fencing capabilities as an Android phone user (I used the app on my iPad). So this news has me wondering if should give the Revolv another test. Revolv also added support for multiple “authorized phones” so it no longer turns off that Nest if an authorized user is still home.
