Palo Alto, California — 30 August 2017 — Nest Labs, Inc. (www.nest.com), maker of hardware, software and services focused on delivering home energy, safety and security solutions, today announced plans to bring its award-winning line of products to five more countries in Europe: Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland.

"Nest is focused on creating a home that takes care of the people inside it and the world around it. To date, Nest’s hardware, software and services have been available for purchase in just thirteen markets, yet they’re used by millions of people in more than 190 countries," said Lionel Paillet, general manager of EMEA, Nest. “With our expansion into the Nordics and Switzerland, as well as Germany, Austria, Italy and Spain earlier this year, we have more than tripled our footprint in Europe in 2017.”

Nest Product portfolio launched in Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland:

  • Nest Protect smoke and carbon monoxide alarm. 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. 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 whole scene. And with the Nest app, you can control and watch live in 1080p HD from anywhere.

  • Nest Cam Outdoor. Who’s at the door? Was my package stolen? Meet Nest Cam Outdoor. It’s weatherproof and plugs into power, 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 Cam IQ. Nest Cam IQ is an intelligent security camera that knows a person from a thing. Nest Cam IQ can identify when someone’s in your home, alert you, and automatically track that person as they move. Nest Cam IQ delivers 1080p HD video, HD quality audio, and 24/7 live streaming.

  • Nest Aware. Add Nest Aware to your Nest Cam, and it will add continuous video recording, Activity Zones and audio alerts that will let you know when your camera hears a person talking or a dog barking. It lets your Nest Cam Indoor and Nest Cam Outdoor send you an alert when there's a person. And it lets Nest Cam IQ send familiar face alerts, so you know if it's a family member or a stranger.'
