Nest learning thermostat rolling out to Apple Stores nationwide

Nest Thermostat

Apple Stores will soon carry stock of the revolutionary Nest learning thermostat. According to sources, the Nest thermostat is being delivered to Apple Stores nationwide and may go on sale as early as next week. The Nest thermostat has already been given its own Apple part number and is set to be sold at the same price as Nest's online store, $249.99.

Today, a trusted source was able to provide a first hand look at the Nest packaged at an Apple Store today, complete with the part number. Priced at $249.99 (the same as Nest's price through Nest's online store), the Nest has a part number of H9279ll/a in Apple's systems.

The Nest was developed by former Apple iPod and iPhone hardware chief Tony Fadell who came up with a new way to imagine your home thermostat -- the Nest Learning Thermostat. It's a touch-controlled system that makes your home energy needs simple and easy to control remotely via an iPhone or iPad app.

According to Nest, the thermostat takes roughly a week to pick up on your energy routines and adjusts your temperature accordingly. A display changes colors to red or blue to distinguish between heating and cooling, and the design is very Apple-like. The greatest part about the Nest Learning Thermostat is the iOS app for your iPhone or iPad, letting your remotely adjust Nest's settings and get all the vital information you need on-the-go.

If you have been thinking about picking up a Nest learning thermostat, you will soon be able to see one in the flesh at your local Apple Store.

Nest learning thermostat rolling out to Apple Stores nationwide


I prefer the Ecobee or Honeywell Redlink thermostats. They both have iphone apps and have a lot more features. Plus they work on more types of systems.

Not the most glamorous industry to revolutionize but everyone has one (a thermostat) and it's something that's visible in most people's homes (so there's the "vanity factor") so there's certainly a market there.

@kilcher2 they aren't "revolutionizing this industry" if anything they are about 10 years behind on this product "excluding the network link. As Jason said Honeywell has a vastly superior product and decades of experience that makes them trustworthy. This is just a pretty spinjob johny come lately.

@Jim, you're right with most points however the experience point is pretty moot considering that Micrsoft had a decade worth of tablet experience before apple came along. Nokia and everyone else owned the world forever before apple came along. Experience means nothing now if something is done right.

This thing is junk. It's just temperature control. It doesn't have onboard diags like my current Carrier one. It doesn't have periodic testing of the system, info on filter life based on air intake volume change, etc. High and low compressor control for dual stage systems and the list goes on and on. Maybe for a basic single stage A/C system it's fine, but not for the other systems out there.

Wow- hugely over priced. A programmable thermostat for $40 at Lowe's will do the exact same thing if not better.

For all those who actually make comments and don't look up the stats of what it actually does; here goes:
Your $40 programmable thermostat does not have proximity sensors to tell when you are not home or not to go into an auto away mode to save energy. Honeywell's Redlink also does not have that.
Your $40 programmable remote cannot auto learn a schedule with unlimited set points.
Outdoor temperature & setup does not require extra boxes wires etc. Yes it does not work with "advanced" setups, but I would imagine that is coming out soon and remember Nest has only been in business for about 2 years and not over a 100 like Honeywell.
The Nest has Airwave which automatically adjusts your cooling based on the amount of humidity in the air to save you more energy. To those complaining, the people at Nest can easily add just about any functionality they want and will probably add realtime filter analysis based off of airflow and running times in the next software update.
Lastly, and it does matter.... It's not a big white blob on your wall in your house and it doesn't take a HVAC professional to install. I always like how haters can speak out without knowning any facts. And yes I own one and in the past 5 months of ownership, the amount in heating and cooling I have saved has paid for the thermostat itself. And I had a advanced programmable remote before Nest.

Excellent goods from you, man. I've take into accout your stuff previous to and you're simply extremely magnificent.
