NEWARK, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Today Logitech (News - Alert) (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) announced an update to its Harmony®
Ultimate remote, allowing you to view and adjust your Nest®
Learning ThermostatTM settings directly from the remote's
2.4-inch color touch-screen. In addition to controlling temperature, you
can also change the thermostat's settings, such as switching from
heating to cooling or turning the system off completely.

"With the Logitech Harmony Ultimate you can already control a wide
variety of devices in your home, and with this Nest Thermostat
integration Logitech now delivers on one of the most reqested features
we hear from our customers - temperature control from the comfort of
your couch," said Joerg Tewes, vice president and general manager of
Logitech's digital home business group. "Adding Nest extends the Harmony
Ultimate's existing support for the most advanced home devices. With one
touch of the remote or the Harmony App on your tablet or smartphone,
you can dim your Philips (News - Alert) Hue lights, turn on your TV, start a movie, and
now set the temperature on your Nest thermostat."
"The Nest Developer Program makes it possible for us to work with
companies like Logitech to build new experiences in the home," said Matt
Rogers Nest founder and vice president of engineering. "Through
integrating with the Logitech Harmony Ultimate you now can adjust your
home's temperature while relaxing on the couch."
This update also enables the Logitech Harmony Ultimate to communicate
with Nest's Auto-AwayTM function. Because both the remote and
Nest Thermostat are connected to your home network, when you pick up the
remote it notifies your Nest Thermostat that you're home, and Nest
adjusts the home temperature according to your settings.

The free update is expected to be available for new and current Harmony
Ultimate users beginning June 24, 2014. For more information, or to add
