Capitol has formed a distribution agreement with Nest Labs, Inc.
Founded by former Apple engineers, Nest is the maker of the popular Nest Learning Thermostat and Nest Protect: Smoke + Carbon Monoxide alarm. Capitol now offers both of these products.
“Nest products are intuitive and add real value, keeping people comfortable and safe in their homes,” said Curt Hayes, Capitol’s president and CFO. “The Nest Thermostat has already saved almost 2 billion kWh across its install base and the Nest Protect: Smoke + Carbon Monoxide alarm is giving families across the country peace of mind that their homes are safe.”
“Our goal is to make every home more conscious and efficient,” added Gene LaNois, Nest general manager, Professional Channel. “Capitol can help us by getting our products into the hands of integrators and installers who really understand the dynamics of home automation and can guide customers through the process.”
