The Misfit Flash might be more commonly associated with fitness and health, but it has been re-purposed to also become a wearable smart home controller. Allowing people to connect with their living space from their wrist, the brand has partnered up with Nest, Logitech, August, and If This Then That (IFTTT) in order to make the technology more pervasive.

Considering that the Misfit Flash is so affordable at only $50, people will be interested in adopting this system in place of others. Granted, the wearable smart home controller works in tandem with other devices such as Nest through its tracking capabilities. For instance, its sleep tracking functionality will tell Nest’s thermostat when to start heating the wearer's house in the morning. This makes the home even more intuitive.
