Nest Learning Thermostat now shipping to Canada, control your house via iPhone and Android apps


Nest Learning Thermostat is now shipping into Canada. This is clearly not a mobile device, but does have both an iOS (iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad) and Android apps to help you monitor the temperature of your house while you’re away. The Nest Learning Thermostat was designed by ex-Apple executive Tony Fadell (he’s called the “grandfather of the iPod”) and is beautiful. Gone is the clunky box and in its place is a modern circular device that’s outfitted with simple display and has Wi-Fi connectivity, which is where the app will come into play.

Nest says their thermostat has the ability to learn your habits and “can help save Canadians up to 20 percent on their home heating and cooling bills by automatically turning itself down when you’re away, guiding you to energy-efficient temperatures when you’re home, and by creating a personalized temperature schedule.”

As for the app, this gives you the ability remotely check the temperature of your house, edit schedules and check the heating and cooling system from the past 10 days. In addition, it apparently finds out if you’re saving energy, which translated into saving money, with the Nest Leaf.

We’ll do a hands-on of the Nest Learning Thermostat, specifically the app, shortly. If you want to score this for your place it’ll cost you $249 USD ($255 CDN).

    waiting for android at home….

    hmm i think both iphone and android have x10 controllers… those would be cool to test. I like how airdroid was reviewed. Maybe unified remote next?

    • SAM

      ANY NEWS WHEN THE GALAXY NOTE FROM ROGERS WILL BE UPDATED TO THE ICS? PLEASE

  • haxor99

    I’d pay $50 for this

    • Someguy

      Maybe you should buy a home first.

  • aregularonhofo

    I agree with Someguy…plus a pair of regular jeans to look normal instead of baggy pants that ride on your hips showing butt hairs. Not cool.

  • EmperumanV

    I think I’ll stick to the Peak Saver thermostat which is WAY better for efficiency.

    • John

      My understanding is that the hydro company sets your thermostat with Peak Saver. Is that true? If so I don’t like the idea of someone else remotely setting the temperature in my home…

    APPLE IS GOING TO BE IN EVERYBODY ONES LIVES!!! YAY!!! BETTER GET AN IPHONE SOON!!! THE WORLD WILL BE SMARTER!!! IPHONE IS THE SMARTPHONE FOR THE SMARTPEOPLE.

  • metoo

      @metoo
      Again with the caps… are you still menstruating??
      You boast about your intelligence and how rich you are in every post, and yet i don’t know an educated professional that would feel the need to post their success @mobilesyrup. It’s okay that you prefer an iphone, I loved the 2 that I owned… But now that I switched, I will never go back!! And with Android having almost 60% market share, I don’t see the iphone winning anytime soon.
      Please just go away, the spelling and grammar in your posts is a clear indication that you are indeed a child who believes getting an iphone somehow made you smarter.
      Telus is dumping the iphone 4 for 0 dollars… it not the price, it’s the choice.
      Please just go away!!!

    There we go … the CAPITAL-morons just ruined the thread !!

  • llanero

    I would like to buy this, but I can’t use it :-( Here in QC most of heating is electric, due to cheap electricity. However, the NEST thermostat doesn’t handle the 240 V electric load need to manage baseboard heater.

    Bummer.

    Cheers.

  • metoo

    I love that these kids hijack other user’s usernames and their own posts end up proving my various points.

    Anyhooo, to the new metoo/Sam/Samantha/MaryAnne, welcome to my username. Do you find it a little uncomfortable that you are posting using my name but also replying to yourself (Sam)?

    It’s be nice when we get proper forum software here so user names can’t be hijacked.

    • metoo

      I like fish.

  • Mapple

    Has anyone tried this? I wonder how good it is

  • juschilin

    i just bought one – should have in a few days. this makes a lot of sense. I can see these guys creating additional consumer products in this category. Right now I have a programmable thermostat which i use to set the temp at different times of the day but its really a dummy thermostat in that it doesn’t react to the environment.

    the ability alone to be able to access remotely is valuable – now I can truly manage my energy usage.

    • stylinred

      some high-end thermostat units provide you a remote lcd thermostat control and does the same things as nest and has a weather widget like you would have on your phone etc but they’re more expensive

  • Kenneth

    are they gonnna make us pay tariff’s on this?!?!??!?

  • Lukin

    Not compatible with dual fuel hybrid systems. Pretty ridiculous considering the price.

    • Rio

      When’s the last time you went out bought a thermostat?

      They are quiet pricy, most of the time the utility provider gives you then for free though.

  • stylinred

    I bought one of these from the states its a great little device but its not as good as I believed some things like switching from heating to ac still requires the user to manually make the switch… that is I can’t lower the desired temperature and have the thermostat automatically turn A/C on you still have to do both

  • stylinred

    I wonder if Honeywell will try and block the sale to Canada considering they’re in the process of suing Nest for patent infringement

  • metoo

    @pept
    Get a clue. I don’t post in all caps. You are right, those posts above to show a lack of intelligence of the poster. Perhaps ironically, that particular person is a diehard android user that normally posts as SAM or Samantha or MaryAnn.

    Just an FYI so you don’t get suckered again.

    Another FYI, I’ve never claimed buying iPhones makes you smarter. That’s your own reading comprehension skills (or lack of) showing again. I have mentioned that numerous demographic studies show iPhone users _trend_ towards higher education, intellect and income. You may not like that fact, but you and SAM (i.e. the user using my name) sort of prove that fact. Don’t like it? Maybe you should go away.
