Chinese consumer electronics firm Haier has launched a smart laundry service in India. Installed at the Indraprastha College for Women, Delhi University, the smartphone-enabled laundry service has been fully automated with IoT based implementation. The service will cater to all registered students in the campus.
The service is fully controlled by “Haier Wash App” that any users can download on their smartphone. The app will help users to reserve, schedule, monitor and pay for the services from their phones. Each washing machine is connected to the cloud and can be individually managed from the app.
The Haier Wash App will also assist the user throughout the washing process. It will remind them to take their clothes out once the washing is over and will maintain a complete record of their laundry usage in the past.
“This is a moment of great pride for us to achieve the milestone of setting up India’s first IoT enabled Smart Laundry service. As we progress further on Haier’s vision to become a global leader in the era of the Internet of Things through its Eco-brand strategy, our focus to create smart solutions for the connected consumer is strengthening. This initiative is a step towards providing high tech, hassle-free laundry solution to today’s millennials who are fast adopters in this hyper connected age,” said Eric Braganza, President, Haier Appliances India.
