Blink
Blink is simply too good to be true. And while it’s not unusual for a crowd funded product to make enormous claims and under deliver, Blink earns a feature just because we want so desperately for it to deliver on what it promises.
Blink is a wireless home security system that has some serious appeal to it. It will ultimately provide live HD video streaming, temperature sensors, night vision, motion detection and more, and all without a monthly fee.

No firm answers on Nest or HomeKit support, but the creators talk of IFTTT integration after launch.
