Nest Labs Responds to Honeywell Lawsuit

Nest Labs, maker of a “smart” thermostat that is the subject of a patent infringement lawsuit filed by Honeywell International, has responded to the filing with the following statement: “We at Nest are proud of creating products that bring true innovation to home efficiency and we are continuing to innovate and bring products to market. … Nest will vigorously defend itself against Honeywell’s patent-attack strategy to stifle thoughtful competition and we have the resources, support and conviction to do so.” Nest’s thermostat hit the market in late 2011; Honeywell alleges that the device infringes on seven of its patents and seeks to enjoin Best Buy in the suit as well.
