A new smart thermostat from Google subsidiary Nest has a special radar sensor that reads hand gestures remotely. This is evident from published by the company documents.

Announcement may follow shortly

Nest has filed a new application with the US telecommunications watchdog. Companies are obliged to do so if they want to market equipment with wireless signals.

The smart home company describes in the document a new thermostat that would be largely the same as current models. However, a new feature is the addition of a radar component that operates on a 60GHz band.

Google’s previously released Pixel 4a phone has a similar radar known as Google Soli. It registers hand gestures that are made above the device, so that it can be operated without touching.

It would mean that the next Nest thermostat can also recognize hand movements. In theory, this makes it possible to increase the temperature at a distance, for example.

It is not yet known when Google will officially announce the new product. Registration with the watchdog suggests that this will happen in a relatively short period of time.
