Google’s Nest Thermostat is a user-friendly smart appliance that can save substantially on energy and cooling bills. The thermostat which takes 30 minutes or less to install, is easy to control and program from anywhere with the Google Home app.

The revolutionary Nest Learning Thermostat is the first thermostat to get “ENERGY STAR” certified. It learns what temperature ranges a person usually chooses and adapts automatically, generating a timetable based on personal preferences and user habits. Using built-in sensors and phones’ locations it can shift into energy-saving mode when it realizes nobody is at home.


Headquartered in Dubai, Mindware’s comprehensive offering includes a selection of infrastructure, networking, security, and storage leading brands. As part of its VAD methodology, the company provides supplementary value-added services to its reselling partners including pre-sales consultancy, implementation services, local technical support, marketing enablement tools, and multiple channel-enabling programs. Its extensive portfolio includes top-class global brands reaching out to over 4,000 resellers.
