NEW YORK, Feb. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Ray Enterprises, a next generation consumer technology company, announced today that its Ray Super Remote now works with the Nest Learning Thermostat to give Ray customers control of their homes beyond the living room. Ray is an intuitive, touchscreen universal remote that looks and feels like a smart phone, controls thousands of devices, and recommends what to watch on TV. The remote works with the Nest Thermostat through a new app by Ray, created exclusively for the remote.

Nest is Ray's first integration with a device for the home. The connection allows Ray customers to control the Nest Thermostat directly from their Ray remote.  Created through the Works with Nest program, the app enables users to log in with their Nest account to view all their structures, set Home/Away mode for any structure, see the thermostats in each structure, and control the temperature and HVAC mode of all of their thermostats.

"We've greatly simplified the living room experience, and this is just our first step beyond entertainment. The home is truly evolving and families need a simplified experience where they can control their home without having to use a multitude of devices," said David Skokna, Ray's CEO. "The Ray Super Remote is my answer to having one, easy-to-use device that controls the entire home, from entertainment to temperature and everything in between."

The Ray app for the Nest Thermostat is now available for all Ray customers at no additional charge. The app was released through a software update automatically sent to all Ray remotes. Ray Super Remote utilizes Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and infrared to connect to and control thousands of devices including TVs, set-top boxes, AV receivers, Apple TV, Roku, Xbox and more. Ray is currently available at Amazon and www.ray.co for $249.
