Here at Mobile Industry Review we’ve already written about the rather fabulous Nest Learning Thermostat as part of our Critical Kit series, and we recently been contacted by Neil Anderson at Smart Finish regarding a rather beautiful Nest “accessory” that makes the device an even more attractive piece of kit…
Beech wood mounts give the Nest a touch of style
It’s always great to hear from people and companies with original products and ideas. Neil tells us that he is a woodworking enthusiast who dreams of leaving corporate America behind to spend his days in the wood shop, designing, creating and selling artisanal decorative mounting brackets for the Nest. It sure looks like he’s well on his way to fulfilling that dream judging by the quality and craftsmanship of the products.
The mounts bring together the traditional style of a classic home with the modern design of smart home technology, and they’ve already been garnering positive reviews and positive feedback – including endorsements from Nest Labs themselves.
Unfortunately none of the Mobile Industry Review staff own a Nest with which to augment with a Smart Finish mount, but Nest owners we have spoken to are very open to the idea of making their Nest look a bit more, well, homely.
The classy mounts are available in a range of finishes ranging from Golden Oak, White, and unfinished wood, as well as two styles (Classic and Modern) for between $45 and $50.
