The £199 device, which launched in the US in September, features a larger and sharper screen than the previous version and brings two handy features exclusive to Europe.
“This event was off the charts”
Gary Vaynerchuk was so impressed with TNW Conference 2016 he paused mid-talk to applaud us.
The first is the ability to control your hot water tank and adjust its schedule from the device or your phone. There’s also an Auto-Away function that helps save energy when you’re not home for more than a couple of days.
The second feature, called OpenTherm, works with compatible boilers to figure out how much gas to burn in order to maintain your preferred temperature. Nest says that this works better than turning your boiler on and off as it helps save energy and extends the life of your heating system.
The device is available at £199 (€249) from Nest’s online store as well over 2,500 locations across Europe.
