Today Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) announced an update to its Harmony® Ultimate remote, allowing you to view and adjust your Nest® Learning ThermostatTM settings directly from the remote’s 2.4-inch color touch-screen. In addition to controlling temperature, you can also change the thermostat’s settings, such as switching from heating to cooling or turning the system off completely.

“With the Logitech Harmony Ultimate you can already control a wide variety of devices in your home, and with this Nest Thermostat integration Logitech now delivers on one of the most requested features we hear from our customers – temperature control from the comfort of your couch,” said Joerg Tewes, vice president and general manager of Logitech’s digital home business group. “Adding Nest extends the Harmony Ultimate’s existing support for the most advanced home devices. With one touch of the remote or the Harmony App on your tablet or smartphone, you can dim your Philips Hue lights, turn on your TV, start a movie, and now set the temperature on your Nest thermostat.”
"The Nest Developer Program makes it possible for us to work with companies like Logitech to build new experiences in the home," said Matt Rogers Nest founder and vice president of engineering. "Through integrating with the Logitech Harmony Ultimate you now can adjust your home’s temperature while relaxing on the couch.”
This update also enables the Logitech Harmony Ultimate to communicate with Nest’s Auto-AwayTM function. Because both the remote and Nest Thermostat are connected to your home network, when you pick up the remote it notifies your Nest Thermostat that you’re home, and Nest adjusts the home temperature according to your settings.
Pricing and Availability
The free update is expected to be available for new and current Harmony Ultimate users beginning June 24, 2014. For more information, or to add your Nest Thermostat, please visit www.myharmony.com/nest or our blog.
