Creating lots of publicity in recent months after its high profile purchase by Google, the Nest Learning Thermostat is designed to address home energy consumption and the Nest Protect: Smoke + Carbon Monoxide protects from dangerous build-up of fumes.
Installers throughout the UK and Ireland will be able to purchase these products from Invision UK, commencing January 2015. Dealer training dates will be announced in early December.
“We are excited to partner with Invision UK,” says Lionel Paillet, general manager for Europe at Nest. “Our goal is to make every home more thoughtful, helping people throughout the UK and Ireland save energy, stay comfortable and improve home safety.”
Mark Taylor, business manager at Invision UK, adds: “Nest products are intuitive and add real value, keeping people comfortable and safe in their homes and we are delighted to be adding Nest to our residential product offering. We are always striving to find ways to help our customers grow and enhance their business, and Nest is a perfect fit.”
The Nest Learning thermostat creates a bespoke heating programme for each install over the course the first week post installation, matching when heat is required and when it is not and also detecting when no one is home.
The Nest Protect is designed to combat the hidden danger of CO build up and alerts home owners to dangers should problems or build up occur.
Through the Works with Nest program, Nest can partner with RTI, Control4, Crestron and URC automation platforms or be controlled independently from a smartphone or tablet.
