Google's Nest Labs announced refreshes and redesigns across the companyís entire product portfolio, including the introduction of Nest Cam, the second generation Nest Protect, new features for the Nest Learning Thermostat, and a new app. Nest Cam is a 1080p camera featuring a stand as well as improved motion alerts and night vision, offering live video streaming to a phone or computer to keep an eye on the home while the Nest user is away. Cam users can also subscribe to Nest Aware with Video History for an additional monthly fee to gain access to video history, alert summaries, advanced motion sensing, and more. Also, Nest is piloting the ability for YouTube creators to stream directly to YouTube Live from Nest Cam. Nest Protect is the company's second generation smoke and carbon monoxide alarm, offering a custom, split-spectrum sensor that uses two wavelengths of light to look for different types of fires. Building on Nestís energy partner program, Nest is partnering with home insurance companies to help Nest Protect users save money on home insurance policies. Through Nest Safety Rewards, a participating Nest insurance partner may offer a discount on a Nest user's annual premiums. American Family and Liberty Mutual Insurance are the first insurance partners to provide offers as part of Nest Safety Rewards. Separately, the updated Nest Learning Thermostat has the capability to notify customers when temperatures drop to help avoid frozen pipes, and it also adds new integrations with other Nest products. Finally, the redesigned Nest app 5.0 brings together all three Nest products across multiple platforms. Nest Cam is available for immediate purchase with a suggested retail price of $199. It will begin shipping this month. The camera is set to launch next month in Belgium, France, Ireland, Netherlands, and the U.K. Nest Aware with Video History can be purchased as a 10-day or 30-day subscription for $10 or $30 per month, respectively. Nest Protect is available for immediate purchase for a suggested retail price of $99, and will begin shipping next month. Nest app 5.0 is available in the Google Play Store and iOS App Store.

07:51 EDTGOOGTwitter downgraded to Neutral at MKM Partners on stalled user growth
As previously reported, MKM Partners analyst Rob Sanderson downgraded Twitter (TWTR) to Neutral from Buy, noting that growth in its user base is stalling out and he sees no catalyst for sentiment to improve in the next two quarters, besides a possible bid from Google (GOOG). Sanderson thinks the company's CEO search brings with it some uncertainty and likely delays user experience improvements, unless Jack Dorsey takes over full-time, but that would require him to give up his CEO post at Square. The firm lowered its estimates on Twitter and cut its price target on the shares to $39 from $57.
