RGB Communications adds Nest products to residential portfolio!

4 February 2016

RGB Communications Ltd is now distributing the 3rd generation Nest Learning Thermostat, Nest Cam, and the Nest Protect smoke and carbon monoxide alarm in UK and Europe.

Hungerford, UK — February 4, 2016 — RGB Communications Ltd (www.rgbcomms.co.uk), today announced they have signed a distribution agreement with Nest Labs, Inc. (www.nest.com/uk), architect of the thoughtful home.

By working together, Nest and RGB Communications are making it easier for professional installers to bring Nest products into their business, as well as providing consumers with more ways to experience Nest in their homes. Professional installers can now train to become a Nest Pro installer and purchase products from RGB Communications in Hungerford, Berkshire.

Nest reinvents unloved but important home products, including the thermostat and smoke and CO alarm which complement RGB’s existing residential product offering. Lutron (lighting and shading) and Savant (home automation) being just two of the big brands that RGB already distribute into the residential market place. Luxury, lifestyle and convenience of the connected home are no longer just the domain of the rich and famous. We share Nest's vision of bringing technology to the broader market and our new partnership presents an excellent opportunity for our customers to expand their offering into the mid-market,” said Andy Atwell, Sales Director of RGB Communications.

The new additions to RGB’s portfolio will include:

  • Nest Cam - Nest Cam lets you see what’s going on in your home at all times, watch live streaming 1080p, stay connected with the Nest app and get alerts on your phone when sound or motion are detected.

  • Nest Protect - Know more, worry less. The new Nest Protect looks for fast-burning fires, smoldering fires and carbon monoxide. It also tells you where the danger is. You can even hush a false alarm from your phone. And in case you’re not home, it will send an alert to your phone.

    3rd Generation Nest Learning Thermostat - With a bigger, sharper display and Farsight, you can see the time or the temperature you’ve set from across the room. And now it even controls your hot water tank. The Nest Thermostat learns the temperature you like, then programs itself. It knows how long it takes to heat your home so you’re comfortable when you get there. When you leave, it turns itself down so you save energy. And you can check your Energy History with the Nest app to see how much you’ve saved.

  • Nest app 5.0 - The Nest app 5.0 brings together all three Nest products, across multiple platforms, making it easier to access and control Nest products.

 

Caroline Britt, Managing Director of RGB Communication comments: “I am really excited to be working with Nest as they are certainly one of the hottest properties in the thriving IoT market. Our expertise of the AV and CI industry, combined with Nest’s excellent product range and prestigious brand can only be of great benefit to us, our dealers and Nest.

Becoming a Nest Pro installer through RGB means that dealers can start to sell and install the award-winning products that are making the home more thoughtful. Nest Pro installers’ get professional pricing, rewards (Nest points by RGB Communications) and terms, as well as access to exclusive training and tools, live VIP support and customer referrals to help their business grow.
