January 27, 2016 – Nuheat, Pentair’s brand of electric floor heating systems, has announced it now works with the Nest learning thermostat.

Through the integration, Nest’s combination of sensors, algorithms and machine learning can prompt the Nuheat Signature thermostat program to react to home occupancy. Staying home? The floor heat will remain On to keep you comfortable. Leaving earlier or arriving later than expected? The floor heat will turn Off to save energy.

Homeowners will also now have the added option to control their floor heat with the Nest app or at home.nest.com. Nuheat Signature is 802.11 b/g/n compatible and secure via WEP, WPA and WPA2, and provides hourly, weekly and monthly energy usage.

The “Works With Nest” features work with any installed Nuheat Signature, Pentair says, and does not require added hardware or software updates. The thermostat will continue to retail for $265 US.
