London, UK — 21 February, 2018 — Nest Labs, Inc. (www.nest.com), architect of the thoughtful home, today announced its plans to bring the award-winning Nest Learning Thermostat to the United Arab Emirates.

“Since we launched in 2011, the Nest Learning Thermostat has been installed in millions of homes around the world and helped to save more than 15 billion kWh - that’s more than enough electricity to power all the homes in United Arab Emirates for an entire year,” said Payton Dobbs, General Manager of EMEA, Nest Labs. “And, starting today, the Nest Learning Thermostat will be available in the United Arab Emirates. That means millions more homes can benefit from it’s beautiful design and energy saving features.”

The Nest Thermostat is slim, sleek and beautiful. It learns the temperatures you like, then programs itself, and knows how long it takes to cool your home so that you’re comfortable when you get there. When you leave, it turns itself down so that you save energy. And with the Nest app you can change the temperature or check your Energy History from anywhere.

Nest Learning Thermostat Features The Nest Learning Thermostat for the UAE has the same features as the award-winning US and Canadian version, including:

  • Remote Control. Connect the Nest Thermostat to Wi-Fi to change the temperature from your phone, tablet, smartwatch or computer.
  • Auto-Schedule. No more confusing programming. It learns the temperatures you like and programs itself.
  • Home/Away Assist. The Nest Thermostat automatically turns itself up when you’re away to avoid cooling an empty home.
  • Early-on. Nest learns how your home cools down and keeps an eye on the weather to get you the temperature you want when you want it.
  • Farsight. When the Nest Thermostat spots you across the room, it lights up beautifully to show you the time, temperature or weather.
  • Energy History. Know how often, and for how long, your cooling system was on. Customers will also receive an Energy Report summarizing the last month’s cooling usage versus the month before, and why it went up or down.

In addition, the Nest Thermostat speaks with other connected products in the home, including Philips Hue, IFTTT, and Belkin WEMO, 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.

Pricing & Availability

The Nest Learning Thermostat is available from today from Etisalat, Noon, Home Bazaar and Virgin Megastore. Its MSRP is 999 AED (VAT included).

Because the Nest Thermostat connects to your cooling system, professional installation is highly recommended.
