State Water Heaters, a manufacturer of hot water systems for homes and businesses, has launched the new iCOMM Connectivity Platform. This Platform is available via the State Water Heaters app on iOS- and Android-ready mobile devices.
All State ULTRA FORCE SUF models now come standard with onboard Wi-Fi, for remotely connectivity to ULTRA FORCE water heaters.
According to Jeff Storie, director of marketing for State Water Heaters, commercial water heater customers ranging from small businesses to chain operations could benefit from the system’s real-time data and alerts.
“The iCOMM platform makes it easy to monitor and maintain commercial hot water systems from virtually any smartphone or tablet,” Storie said. “Commercial contractors and facility managers will appreciate the app’s ability to show them their customers have the hot water they need to run their businesses.”
Connecting and registering an iCOMM-compatible ULTRA FORCE water heater involves updating or installing the State Water Heaters app, connecting to the building’s Wi-Fi network and completing the step-by-step app sign-up process.
State Water Heaters first unveiled iCOMM for water heater connectivity in 2009. The system operated through a desktop application that monitored a water heater hardwired to the Internet.
