    I need a remote thermostat - I'll hold off buying one until the competition has expired, just in case.

    I saw the matching smoke detectors in B&Q the other day and asked why they didn't stock these thermostats.

    entered

    EDIT: To answer my own question, it seems that these devices require 24V AC to run, and Nest are currently working on a 240V AC version for UK/EU markets.

    Looks like Google have just bought Nest. Makes for a very interesting and integrated future.
