Corporation, manufacturer of the number-one selling brand of
tankless gas water heaters in North America, continues to expand the
smart home platforms that integrate with its products.
Rinnai continues to lead the industry as it announces it is the first
water heating company to integrate with Samsung SmartThings. This is the
latest in a series of innovations that the company has developed to
support today’s connected living. By adding Rinnai’s Control-R™ Wi-Fi
Module to one of their tankless water heaters, tankless owners can now
integrate with smart home products to control the unit’s water
temperature and recirculation.
With SmartThings’ new Water Heater category, featuring only Rinnai
Tankless Water Heaters, homeowners can quickly add their tankless water
heater into their favorite scenes for good morning, good night and much
more. With SmartThings automation, homeowners can activate their
recirculation system by simply entering their home and disable it when
they drive away for work.
“SmartThings allows homeowners to connect their devices and manage them
as one. This gives homeowners more convenience and control over their
tankless water heater than ever before,” said Mark Buss, Vice President
of Marketing for Rinnai.
Rinnai also supports voice control for both recirculation and water
temperature with Amazon Alexa and Google Home. These integrations allow
users to control their tankless water heater with over 20 unique
phrases. Simply say, “OK Google, tell Rinnai to set temperature to 120
degrees” or “Alexa, tell Rinnai I need hot water” for the ultimate
convenience and comfort.
“At Rinnai, we have a fierce commitment to product innovation. We now
support and integrate with three of the most recognized smart home
products in the industry. Rinnai continues to meet aggressive market
demands in the IoT space by engineering solutions that consumers have
asked for,” said Ray VanAssche, Vice President of Innovation for Rinnai.
