EcoNet, which will be connected to a home’s heating, cooling, and water heating systems through a central hub, enables homeowners to conveniently manage energy usage and monitor diagnostics and maintenance schedules.

The EcoNet system is also compatible with the Wink smart home platform, one of the home automation platforms providing a simple, intuitive, and people-friendly way to control hundreds of connected devices through one single application, the company said.

Wink general manager and vice president Brett Worthington said: "Their move into the connected home is no surprise given their long history in producing innovative, cutting edge products, and EcoNet system will help further Wink’s goal of making people’s lives easier through connected devices."

In addition to enabling homeowners to customize and manage home air and water systems, Rheem’s EcoNet system allows homeowners to see important real-time alerts about maintenance issues.
