LOUISVILLE, Ky.—February 18, 2019—Committing to a healthier and more conscientious lifestyle remains top of mind for many consumers as they invest in solutions that promote cleaner, safer and more purified homes. With that in mind, GE Appliances is expanding its portfolio of IoT products with the introduction of the Smart Water Whole Home Filtration System and Smart Water Softener System with leak alerts and remote shutoff capabilities.
“The new GE Appliances Smart Water Whole Home Filtration and Softener systems were designed to provide a great ownership experience through easy installation, premium filtration or softening, and meaningful connected features,” said Trent Jacobi, senior director, water filtration, GE Appliances. “Leveraging our deep technical capabilities in water treatment with our connected technology, we have designed a truly innovative product that not only provides clean water throughout the home, but also potential leak alerts and the ability to remotely shut off water.”
The new water solutions enable people and families to receive home water leak alerts, access details about their water systems, and perform remote water shutoff through the custom-designed GE Appliances mobile app, compatible with both iOS and Android devices.
Additionally, the new, whole home water filtration system effectively filters out lead and other harmful chemicals, such as Chlorine, that make water unsafe to drink.
The Smart Water Whole Home Filtration System retails for $199 and the Smart Water Softener System retails for $649. For more information or product availability, visit www.geappliances.com.
