Google’s acquisition of Nest was officially completed yesterday, following the original announcement of the deal back in January, and after regulatory approval.

The deal was approved with the SEC on Wednesday, who officially closed the deal at $3.2 billion, and bringing with it Nest’s Learning Thermostat, Protect Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detector, and all of its previous employees, including a number of ex-Apple employees who joined the team earlier.

“We expect that the acquisition will enhance Google’s suite of products and services and allow Nest to continue to innovate upon devices in the home, making them more useful, intuitive, and thoughtful, and to reach more users in more countries,” Google said in the regulatory filing.

Google has said that after the deal, Nest will continue to operate as normal, and it won’t interfere with any of the company’s proceedings.
