Irish citizens can now get a free Nest when they sign up for a two-year utility contract with Electric Ireland. The Nest normally costs $250, so the deal is pretty decent especially if you were going to sign a utilities contract, anyways.
Most utilities customers pay month to month so the deal also works out for the utilities companies.
While Ireland and its 1.6 million households is a small start, but Nest is looking to "bring it out to hopefully many more countries. This is a seminal event in Ireland [that] we think is going to change the world."
The smart thermostat learns user's heating and cooling preferences over time and also allows you to control the heat via Web-connected devices.
