Construtech ran an article about smart appliances coming to the construction industry from General Electric. GE Appliances & Lighting plans to launch a portfolio of products that provide insight into energy usage across the home. The article says through a series of products that leverage connected technologies, such as smart meters, consumers will be able to manage and control their energy use and costs more efficiently. GE says homeowners will be able to remotely adjust smart thermostats and alter the consumption of GE Profile Appliances in response to utility price signals. Construtech says the smart home may be closer than you realize. Some manufactured homes feature GE appliances.
