Nest 2.0 will cost $249 and be available in mid-October. The new version of the device features ten connectors -- up from eight on the original -- meaning it will now work with a greater number of systems, including high-end air conditioners.

The original Nest had a small section on its front with perforated plastic, which allowed interior sensors to detect nearby movement. The new version loses the perforations, and features what appears to be a single piece of plastic, yet it is just as sensitive to the comings and goings of residents as its predecessor.
