Whirlpool Corporation is expanding its smart home appliance ecosystem this year with the announcement of a collaboration with Honeywell. Consumers will now be able to connect smart appliances from Whirlpool Corporation to Honeywell’s line of connected thermostats, allowing for remote management of their appliance operating modes and energy outputs.* The capabilities will roll out across brands in the Whirlpool Corporation portfolio throughout 2018.
“This collaboration with Honeywell is another example of how Whirlpool Corporation is working to make the connected home a reality, with functionalities that are both convenient and purposeful for our consumers,” said Brett Dibkey, Whirlpool Corporation vice president, brand, and strategy in North America. “The capabilities made possible through this collaboration will help homeowners take the guesswork out of home appliance energy management while they’re away, and bring peace of mind that their appliances are operating according to their personal preference.”
