Honeywell International has filed a patent infringement suit against Nest Labs, claiming Nest’s new Learning Thermostat infringes several Honeywell patents.
The patents at issue in the case are apparently related to the operation and programming of “smart” thermostats. For its part, Honeywell has stated that “competition is good and we welcome it, but we will not stand by while competitors, large or small, offer products that infringe on our intellectual property.”
We’ve reached out to Nest for a comment and will let you know as soon we get their take on this new development.
