3rd Generation Nest Learning Thermostat Now Available in Europe

3rd Generation Nest Learning Thermostat Now Available in Europe

Nest Labs, Inc. ( www.nest.com ), architect of the thoughtful home, today brings the 3rd generation Nest Learning Thermostat to the UK, France, Netherlands, Belgium and Republic of Ireland. In addition to its new design, the 3rd generation Nest Thermostat offers improved boiler support that now delivers remote hot water control and advanced compatibility with OpenTherm heating systems. New design features include a slimmer profile, a high-resolution screen that’s 40 percent larger and an updated user interface that makes it easier to read temperatures, alerts and messages. And Farsight, a new software feature, automatically displays the target temperature or time when movement is sensed across the room.

“Millions of Nest homes around the world have saved approximately four billion kilowatt hours of energy compared to what they would have used if they’d left their thermostats at a consistent temperature. And today, with brand new software and hardware, our European customers can save even more whilst staying comfortable, thanks to remote hot water control and OpenTherm compatibility,” said Lionel Paillet, General Manager of Europe for Nest. “And we are continuing to expand our presence in Europe – the 3rd generation Nest Thermostat will be available through thousands of retail locations, professional distributors, and directly through Nest Pro installers, and at a discount or at no cost at all through energy partners.”

The 3rd generation Nest Thermostat learns the temperature you like, then programs itself. It knows how long it takes to heat your home so you’re comfortable when you get there. When you leave, it automatically turns down your boiler and hot water tank so you save energy.

New features for the 3rd generation Nest Learning Thermostat

Hot water (exclusive to Europe) – The Nest Thermostat can now control your hot water tank, in addition to central heating. You can adjust the hot water schedule from your phone or thermostat, boost from anywhere, and Auto-Away works with your hot water tank to help save energy when no one’s home (after 2 days).

Sleek new design – The Nest Thermostat has a 40 percent larger, brighter, high-resolution screen and new graphics so you can see it easier from far away. The crisp screen has 229 pixels per inch (ppi), 25 percent more than the current generation Nest Thermostat. The 3rd generation Nest Thermostat also has a slightly thinner profile so it can sit flush against the wall.

Farsight – Previously, you had to be pretty close to get the Nest Thermostat to wake up and turn on the display. Farsight takes advantage of the new high-resolution screen so that you can see useful information on the Nest Thermostat from across the room. You can set the thermostat to display target temperature, an analog clock or digital clock, or turn Farsight off.

OpenTherm support (exclusive to Europe) – Nest now uses OpenTherm to enable two-way communication between compatible boilers and the 3rd generation Nest Thermostat. The Nest Learning Thermostat continues to get better over time through over-the-air software updates, and the modulation experience will continue to improve in the future.

We’ve also created a brand new stand for the Nest Thermostat. This was designed for homes that don’t already have a thermostat, or where the old thermostat was in a room where the temperature wasn’t regulated, so it can be put in the best place to sense the temperature and activity in your home.

Creating a More Thoughtful Home
Just like the current generation, the 3rd generation Nest Thermostat will also include the following integrations with Nest Protect and Nest Cam:

• When Nest Protect sounds a Heads-Up or Emergency Alarm for smoke or carbon monoxide (CO), you’ll see a message on the Nest Thermostat display to help you know what’s going on in addition to a Nest app notification . The Nest Thermostat can automatically stop your gas or oil boiler from heating your home – the most common source of CO in the home. This can prevent your boiler from making the situation even worse

• Nest Protect enhances the Nest Thermostat’s Auto-Away feature by improving Nest’s knowledge of when you’re home or away

• You can set your Nest Cam to turn on automatically when you switch your Nest Thermostat into Home or Away mode

In addition, the 3rd generation Nest Thermostat speaks with other connected products in the home from household brands including Philips Hue, Osram, Bosch, Logitech and LG, to work together, learn from one another and help you out – all on their own – helping the home to be safer, more secure, or help save money.

Carbon Monoxide alarm

Nest Protect: The Smoke + Carbon Monoxide Alarm Reinvited

These products should keep us safe, not annoy us. Nest Protect: Smoke + Carbon Monoxide alarm does much more than just sound a shrill alarm when there’s danger in your home.

It speaks to you, telling you where the danger is and what the problem is. And before it sounds a piercing alarm, Nest Protect gives you a friendly Heads-Up warning that you can silence with a wave of your hand – no more swinging towels or brooms to try to quiet a false alarm. It integrates with your mobile devices and even messages you if the batteries run low, avoiding that all-too-familiar midnight low-battery chirp.

“With our first product, the Nest Learning Thermostat, we set out to help people reduce home energy use,” said Tony Fadell, Nest founder and chief executive officer. “Now, we’re turning our attention to something that’s also important: keeping families safe in their homes. We’ve all experienced the smoke alarm going off while we’re cooking or searched for the source of that incessant low-battery chirp in the middle of the night. Every time a smoke alarm cries wolf, we trust it a little less, and then – in a moment of frustration – we rip the batteries out to stop the beeping. And that leaves us and our families at risk.”

According to a study by the National Fire Protection Agency of smoke alarms that failed to activate during home fires, 73 percent of them had dead, missing or disconnected batteries. Nuisance alarms were the leading reason for disconnected smoke alarms.

“Safety shouldn’t be annoying,” said Matt Rogers, Nest founder and vice president of engineering. “It was unacceptable to us that almost two-thirds of home fire deaths resulted from fires in properties without working smoke alarms. These products are required by law and are supposed to keep us safe, yet people hate them. We wanted to change that, so we created Nest Protect: Smoke + Carbon Monoxide.”

Product Features

High-quality smoke and carbon monoxide alarm. Nest Protect is a multi-criteria detector with heat, CO, and smoke sensors that work together to detect danger.

Heads-Up. If Nest Protect sees that smoke or CO levels are rising but have not yet reached emergency alarm levels, it will give you an early warning so it can avoid crying wolf.

Nest Wave. No need to wave towels or climb on chairs. Nest Protect lets you silence nuisance alarms with a wave of your hand.

Mobile notifications. Connect Nest Protect to your free Nest account using Wi-Fi and you can receive low-battery alerts, Heads Up and emergency alarm notifications on your smartphone or tablet. In an emergency, the What to Do feature will remind you of recommended actions and give you one-button access to an emergency phone number.

Nightly Promise. Sleep safe and sound. Before you doze off, Nest Protect shows you its sensors and batteries are working with a quick green glow after you turn off the lights so low-battery chirps don’t rattle your dreams.

Pathlight. Nest Protect offers more than just smoke and CO warnings. Its LED lights can be a night light in your home. When it’s dark, Nest Protect will light your way as you walk underneath it.

Vocal alarms. According to a study by Victoria University, children can sleep through beeping smoke alarms. So in addition to alarm sounds, Nest Protect uses female Voice Alarms to help wake sleeping children in case of emergency.

More sensors, more features. Nest Protect’s sensors include a photoelectric smoke sensor, CO sensor, heat sensor, light sensor, ultrasonic sensors and activity sensor. Together, they analyze smoke and CO levels, see when you wave, and light your way at night.

Wireless interconnect. If you have more than one Nest Protect, they connect so you’ll hear alarms from all Nest Protects in your home, even if the danger is in only one room.

Design. Nest Protect introduces a distinctive square shape with a white sunflower pattern. A black version will be available only at www.nest.com.

Multiple languages. In the U.S., Nest Protect offers voice alerts in both English and Spanish. Simply select your preferred language during setup.

Better Together

For families that have both the Nest Learning Thermostat and Nest Protect, a free Nest user account allows the products to work together. If Nest Protect’s carbon monoxide alarm goes off, your Nest thermostat automatically turns off your gas furnace, a possible source of poisonous carbon monoxide leaks. In addition, the Nest Protect activity sensors improve the Auto-Away feature of your Nest thermostat.

New Nest App

The Nest app on iOS, Android and the Web can be used to set up, control, and get alerts for both Nest Protect and the Nest Learning Thermostat. Available in English, Spanish and French, the Nest app will be updated with a new design and new features when Nest Protect ships.

We now installed the Nest Alarm so give us a call today.

A Quick Guide To Nest Learning Thermostat

A Quick Guide To Nest Learning Thermostat

Everything you thought you knew about your heating system has all changed. It’s time for a rethink. Did you know that your heating and hot water makes up over 60% of your energy bill? That’s roughly £1300 a year and rising. Despite this, heating controls have scarcely changed in the last decade so it about time that a new modern programmable thermostat is introduced. The Nest Learning Thermostat is a programmable timer and thermostat in one.

There is nothing more annoying than coming home from a holiday to a cold house when the heating has been turned off or on a cold winter morning having to fiddle with the control of the thermostat until you reach the temperature you want.
The Nest Thermostat goes one step better and will learn your schedule to programme itself. It notices when you’re gone and automatically turns down the heat. You are also be able to see how much heat you are using on a daily basis as you will receive an energy report every month helping you keep track of your energy usage. Another great aspect of The Nest Learning Thermostat is the app you can download for your smart devices, enabling you to control the thermostat from wherever you are.

Here is a little guide to Nest Thermostat and what to expect. If you would like more information then please don’t hesitate to contact us. We would be more than happy to help you.
