Global innovation powerhouses combine strengths to connect the home so consumers can connect with their lives
Together, Haier and GE Appliances are the world’s largest appliance company and jointly, they are transforming the way consumers interact with their homes. Focused on creating a “Smarter Home, Better Life,” the two brands are combining their strengths to bring to life real, meaningful IoT products that save time and create opportunities for consumers to connect with their homes—and each other. Those innovations will be featured during the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC), Central Hall, Booth 11128.
“In a connected world, there’s still nothing more important than creating real, human connections with friends and family near and far,” said Shawn Stover, vice president, Smart Home Solutions for GE Appliances. “GE Appliances and Haier rally around this ideal in everything we do by creating opportunities for consumers to spend less time on household tasks and more time on the things that really matter to them.”
GE Appliances is the pioneer of many industry-first technologies. The company has the largest suite of smart home appliances, with more than 300 connected models and partnerships with tech brands including Amazon, Google, Apple and Nest. Haier’s U+ platform—the foundation for GE Appliances and Haier connected technologies—makes seamless, whole-home experiences possible. Connected service enhances appliance performance and fosters peace of mind for users. It also helps extend the life of products through reminders, software enhancements and capabilities like remote diagnostics.
“As smart home adoption rates rise, we see it as our responsibility to ensure that smarter homes go beyond tech features to actually create meaningful daily impacts on people’s lives,” Stover said. “Our U+ Connect platform helps us do that because it is a fully open, single solution that ties together all smart home technologies and future-proofs connected investments for consumers.”
At CES, GE Appliances and Haier will showcase their collective breadth of smart home products that save time on common tasks like planning and preparing meals, reordering household items, rewashing forgotten clothes and more. And for the whole home, Haier is focused on solutions that promote healthier eating, cleaner air and enhanced convenience and connectivity throughout the home.
