The market for smart-home devices is booming, with no signs of a slowdown over the next several years. A recent industry report estimated that the global smart-home market will nearly quadruple from $99 billion in 2020 to an astounding $380 billion by 2028.
What is driving this unprecedented growth in smart-home technology? Smart appliances are increasingly becoming the industry norm. In fact, many experts project that smart appliances will reach a worldwide market volume of at least $76 billion by 2026.
In an increasingly digital world, GE Appliances Air & Water Solutions is committed to keeping up with the industry trends and consumer expectations and exceeding them.
This is why we created GE Appliances’ SmartHQ Pro™, the first end-to-end smart solution to give property managers, servicers and contractors who want to remotely monitor the appliances they install and oversee total control by providing a simple way to manage and service appliances from one centralized location.

- GE Appliances’ platform sends notifications and alerts that can help avoid service calls or inadvertently result in repeat visits to an owners/tenant's home
These features provide consumers with the ultimate flexibility to choose how they use SmartHQ Pro for appliance management and service.
