Nest, which was bought by Google (GOOG) earlier this year, won’t be profitable for another 10 years.

goog-nest-googleAccording to Nest CEO Tony Fadell, the company that is looking to help people save energy with smart household items won’t truly be profitable for another 10 years.

Nest has released a smart thermostat that adjusts temperatures based on schedules and if anyone is in the house. Fadell claims that this innovation in a home device could save people a lot of money. He also said that the company is working to develop other smart devices, MarketPlace notes.
