Nest has announced that it will be bringing its connected thermostat and smoke detector to more countries in Europe, with initial availability across France, Netherlands, Belgium and Ireland set to commence by the end of this month. Customers in these countries will be able to buy Nest's products from over 400 retail locations at launch, with an additional 150 stores set to be added by the end of the year.

Although Nest's products are available only in the US, Canada and the UK, the company mentioned on its blog that its thermostats have been installed in over 120 countries across the globe. On the utilities side of things, Nest is partnering with Direct Energie, Essent and Lampiris in addition to nPower in the UK.

EU residents, are you excited about the imminent availability of Nest thermostats?

Nest launching in the EU by the end of the month

Excited? Not really. That's only five additional countries. Great enough for them, but a launch in the entire EU, or even entire Europe would have been nice. Ah well, the rest will probably come along. I guess Europe is a hard market to introduce a product to, many different languages, regulations and whatnot.
