Leading Connected Home Brand Nest Launches in Australia
Products available exclusively for purchase from iSelect, Australia’s Life Admin Store™, and will unlock special offers from iSelect’s range of partners
Sydney, Australia — 11 July 2017 — Nest Labs, Inc. (www.nest.com), architect of the thoughtful home, today announced its plans to bring its award-winning safety and security products and services to Australia. The Nest Cam Indoor, Nest Cam Outdoor and Nest Protect smoke and carbon monoxide alarm will be available exclusively through iSelect.
“Nest is focused on creating a home that takes care of the people inside it and the world around it,” said Maxime Veron, Director of Product Marketing at Nest. “To date, Nest’s hardware, software and services have been available for purchase in just twelve markets, yet they’re used by millions of people in more than 190 countries. Today we’re excited to be entering our first market in Asia Pacific region through our partnership with iSelect.”
Nest will initially launch with their security and safety product range, including:
• Nest Protect smoke and carbon monoxide alarm (AUD $189 incl GST). 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 can send an alert to your phone. Burnt the toast? You can simply hush a false alarm from your phone.
• Nest Cam Indoor (AUD $319 incl GST). Is everything safe and sound? What’s the dog getting into? Nest Cam Indoor plugs into power so you never worry about dead batteries and never misses a thing. It looks for motion or sound and sends an alert when it sees something conspicuous. Night Vision illuminates the whole scene. And with the Nest app, you can control and watch live in 1080p HD from anywhere 24/7.
• Nest Cam Outdoor (AUD $319 incl GST). Who’s at the door? Was my package stolen? Meet Nest Cam Outdoor. It’s weatherproof, plugs into power, and is easy to install with its magnetic base, so you can look after home 24/7, rain or shine. Get an alert when there’s activity and talk to get someone’s attention from your phone.
• Nest Aware (from AUD $14 incl GST). When you add Nest Aware to Nest Cam, advanced cloud algorithms kick in to give your camera smarter alerts and video history. Nest Aware can tell a person from a thing and can even recognize the sound of a person talking or a dog barking. And store up to 30 days of continuous video in the cloud.
