Nest ‘Smart Meter’ Now Available on Google Play

from Google’s purchase of Nest has quickly borne fruit, at least in the distribution department, as the company made the Nest Learning Thermostat available to purchase for $249 CDN on the Play Store. Google spent $3.2 billion to purchase Nest earlier this year, and though the collaboration has yet to spawn any new products, its newfound distribution channel allows the search giant to advertise the product while users search for smartphones, tablets and apps. Nest is a digital thermostat that works with your home’s existing infrastructure to optimize heat and air conditioning output, and connects to WiFi for remote administration using an iPhone or Android device. The updated version of the Nest, which the company began selling last year, features a 320×320 pixel touch panel, dual-channel WiFi and a two-year warranty.
