Nest Thermostat Goes On Sale In The U.K.



The Google-owned Nest thermostat arrives in the U.K. today.

Created by “Podfather” Tony Fadell and former Apple colleague Matt Rogers, the Nest thermostat is an iOS-connected device which allows users to control and automate their indoor heating.

It can be purchased from Nest’s online store, alongside Amazon, Apple, and B&Q — priced at £179, or £249 with the recommended professional installation included.

This install is due to an added Heat Link component, which Nest had had to add for the U.K. launch. This attaches to attaches to your home boiler and communicates to the Nest device via either a wired or wireless connection. The addition of the Heat Link delayed the European release of the Nest thermostat.

Having now made it to the United States, Canada, and U.K., Nest is reportedly aiming “to aggressively expand throughout Europe,” which will see the product launch in other international territories soon.
