Ayla and Culligan International introduce their first smart home product on Ayla’s IoT platform. Using Culligan Connect™, homeowners can monitor and control high-efficiency (HE) water softeners remotely, from anywhere in the world—and Culligan dealers can monitor system status and provide more proactive service to homeowners. These systems use Ayla-embedded agents to connect via Wi-Fi to the Ayla cloud. The Culligan Connect accessory is currently compatible with Culligan HE water softeners in the US and Canada. Users can download the free mobile app via the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.
