Nest is the Internet of Shit company Google bought and steadily expanded from "smart" thermostats to the current home security product, "Nest Secure," which has an undisclosed microphone -- but don't worry, it wasn't intended to be a secret, Google just forgot to mention it, and "the microphone has never been on and is only activated when users specifically enable the option."

Philips Hue announces new outdoor lights and motion sensor at CES 2019
First on the list is the Philips Hue Outdoor Sensor. Philips already has a motion sensor for inside the home, but with the outdoor one, you can now have connected Hue lights automatically turn on when the Outdoor Sensor detects you approaching your house from outside. It can detect movement up to 12 meters (aka 39 feet) and can automatically disable itself when the sun is out.
