Nature is an IoT start-up fostering sustainable coexistence between nature and technology with a vision to accelerate the shift towards clean energy using IoT products. Nature was originally incubated at Harvard and, in two years, has been able to sell over 200,000 units to become one of the best-selling smart home devices in Japan partnering with major tech brands such as Amazon and Google.

The Nature Remo is a device that uses built-in sensors and a connected smartphone app to make any IR remote-controlled home appliances smart. The Nature Remo allows users to control their home appliances via smartphone app or when connected to smart speakers, with voice. Additionally users can create automation triggers like GPS, timers, temperature, humidity, lighting, and movement to automatically operate the appliances.

Starting from home automation devices, Nature aims to disseminate distributed power sources and create a future with self-sufficient energy.
