The Nest smart thermostat has been available for people to buy in the US for a longtime now. Not too long ago, Google purchased Nest and kept the people behind the product turning the team into the Google hardware group.




If you live in the UK and have been waiting to get your hands-on a Nest thermostat, it has now launched in your country. As of today, the Nest thermostat can be purchased in the UK starting at £179. That price includes free installation within about ten days of purchase.


If you want the Nest and need it installed faster, you can pay £249 and get the Nest with FAST installation within 3-4 days. The thermostat has the same features and style in the UK that it offers in the US. An accessory stand will be available for users who don't want to install it on the wall.


If you already have a thermostat on the wall, it can be installed there. The only big difference in the device between the UK and US is that due to the high voltage wires used in boilers in the UK, Nest recommends professional installation. You also need a Wi-Fi network in the home.
