Last summer, Google's Nest Labs unveiled its first "Works with Nest" integrations. These are experiences created by third-party developers that enable Nest to work with different types of products.

The first integrations included: one from Jawbone to adjust your home temperature as you get out of bed; warning-flashing lightbulbs from LIFX; a universal remote from Logitech; a Mercedes-Benz integration to tell Nest when you're going to be home so it can start heating or cooling; and washer/dryer integrations from Whirlpool. Additional integrations from various parties have launched in the meantime.

At the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nest is announcing some new partners with additional integrations. One is the August Smart Lock, which can set the Nest Thermostat to Home when you unlock your door, and start warming or cooling your house. When you lock the door on the way out, it will set it to Away to help save energy.

There's also a Kevo Smart Lock, which tells your thermostat who's home and what temperatures they like.

Another integration is with Chargepoint, which lets your car charging station know when energy is in high demand to avoid charging your car when electricity is most expensive. There's also an Ooma VOIP home phone integration, a Philips Hue integration, a Withings Sleep System integration, and additional Whirlpool integration, which lets your washer and dryer know when you're home so they can automatically switch to quiet mode.

Here's a look at some other stuff that's coming soon:

The company will be showing off a lot of new stuff at the show. They have over a dozen booths and meeting venues.
