Imagine a smart fridge that prompts your smartphone that it's time to replace the water filter and allows you to reorder it with a single click, the peace of mind knowing that while you are on vacation you'll get a text in the event your smoke detector goes off or the back door is opened, and having the repairman come with the right part the first time as the dishwasher remotely provides customer support the error code of what went wrong. We make this all possible!
