Last month, Nest announced that it would be starting to sell its products in Austria, Germany, Italy, and Spain. But at the time, the retail outlets where these products could be bought ranged from Amazon to Media Markt, ePrice, El Corte Ingles, and a couple more. They were all third-party retailers and not official Nest or Google entities.

- Nest Protect, 2nd generation: Austria, Germany (still not available in Italy or Spain)
- Nest Cam Indoor: Austria, Germany, Italy, Spain
- Nest Cam Outdoor: Austria, Belgium, Italy, Spain (was already available in Germany).
