Nest Product Portfolio

  • 3rd generation Nest Learning Thermostat (MSRP €249 incl. VAT). The
    Nest Learning Thermostat learns the temperatures you like and how long
    it takes to heat your home, then programs itself to keep you
    comfortable. When you’re away, Nest turns itself down automatically so
    you save energy, and you can control it from the Nest App so you come
    home to a warm home.
  • Nest Protect smoke and carbon monoxide alarm (MSRP €119 incl. VAT). Know
    more, worry less. Nest Protect looks for fast-burning fires,
    smoldering fires and carbon monoxide. It also tells you where the
    danger is with a vocal alert. And in case you’re not home, it will
    send an alert to your phone. Burnt the toast? You can simply hush a
    false alarm from your phone.
  • Nest Cam Indoor (MSRP €199 incl. VAT). Is everything safe and
    sound? What’s the dog getting into? Nest Cam Indoor sends alerts when
    there’s motion or sound. When it’s dark, Night Vision illuminates the

    1080p HD from anywhere.
  • Nest Cam Outdoor (MSRP €199 incl. VAT). Who’s at the door? Was
    my package stolen? Meet Nest Cam Outdoor. It’s weatherproof and plugs
