Rinnai Corp., continues to increase the number of smart home devices that integrate with its products.
In August Rinnai announced it was the first tankless water heater manufacturer to offer Amazon Alexa integration with its products.
Rinnai is continuing to lead the industry with the addition of Google Home support. This allows users to control their tankless unit’s temperature as well as recirculation. Controlling a unit’s temperature for comfort and convenience is the newest voice-enabled feature available for Google Home and Amazon Alexa.
The enhanced Control-R 2.0 module with smart home integration features more than 20 available voice commands to activate the recirculation system or select a favorite temperature.
In addition to smart home technology, the Control-R 2.0 mobile app has built-in timers and schedules allowing for multiple on/off recirculation periods throughout the day. Schedules stored locally on the Control-R module operate with or without a constant Wi-Fi connection.The app also allows users to remotely put the system into vacation mode when they are away or activate the system on demand without a schedule.
