Nest: No squirrels.

Nest Thermostat Easter Egg

Nest recently announced their 3.0 software update and a new thinner Nest thermostat.

After trying to find out how to update the software, only to realize that it happens automatically, I discovered an easter egg hidden in the device.

If you go to Settings > Legal Info and scroll to the bottom. These messages will display:

  • No Squirrels.
  • It’s just a switch.
  • Brought to you from the garage on Alma.
  • My good friends call me Harry.

The new Nest thermostat looks even better than the original. Would upgrade if I hadn’t bought my current unit just two months ago. Easter eggs are always fun to find. Good to see a development team with a sense of humor.
