How does the Nest Thermostat know when you leave?

With a function called HomeAway Assist, the thermostat nest can use the built-in sensor as well as the GPS location of the phone to automatically determine whether you are home or away. From there, you can lower the temperature if you are out and activate when you notice that you are coming home.
