Nest has suspended sales of its Nest Protect intelligent smoke alarm due to issues with a motion command that could inadvertently turn off the alarm during an emergency.
During an interview at the DLD Conference in Munich, Nest CEO Tony offered more details regarding how his company would address any privacy changes that may result following its purchase by Google.
