January 3, 2020
Category leaders advance mutual interests in integrated technologies to give consumers more control and a quality experience
Davidson, N.C. (January 3, 2020) — Trane® Residential, a leading global provider of sustainable home comfort systems and services, announces its work with Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., to enhance indoor air quality and elevate whole home comfort across smart devices and appliances.
The strategic collaboration for this joint innovation between Trane and Samsung Electronics brings simplicity and convenience into the user’s connected experience — connecting technologies for better communication and operation. Through the integration, Samsung’s SmartThings platform can now manage Trane’s connected thermostats. The Trane XL1050 Connected Control with Samsung SmartThings connectivity will be on display at the 2020 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas at the Samsung CES Booth ( #15006 Central Hall - LVCC)
“Creating an exceptional indoor air quality experience that also addresses sustainability is at the core of everything we do,” said George Land, general manager for Ingersoll Rand brand digital products. “That is why it’s imperative for us to forge thoughtful relationships with like-minded leaders, like Samsung, to truly take extraordinary strides in smart home innovation.”
The Trane connected solutions, including the 1050, 824 and 850 thermostats — contain a built-in Nexia bridge, bringing smart home comfort to the homeowner’s fingertips and allowing them to remotely control their home and energy use. Paired with Samsung’s SmartThings and the Trane Clean Effects Indoor Air Cleaner, homeowners can now monitor and control indoor air quality by leveraging Samsung’s sensors to detect inconsistencies and set the air cleaner into action manually or through automations created in the Trane connected thermostat app.
“We’re also very excited to work with an industry leader like Trane,” said Sunggy Koo, Vice President, Home IoT at Samsung Electronics. “Jointly Samsung SmartThings and Trane will bring unique values to our customers who are looking for more seamless experiences at home.”
The Trane Connected Controls with Samsung SmartThings capabilities are available nationwide through Trane dealers, and will be on display at the Samsung Electronics CES Booth (#15006 Central Hall - LVCC ).
