LOUISVILLE, Ky., January 6, 2023— GE Appliances, a Haier company (GEA) today announced that it is expanding its SmartHQ Management footprint in senior living communities through a partnership with Lumenant, a company specializing in the technology integration of senior living properties for the comfort of residents and ease of management.

By the first quarter of 2023, GEA will deploy SmartHQ Pro technology through Lumenant’s service to better manage 4,000 PTAC units — saving energy, cutting costs, and providing proactive maintenance, diagnostic analysis and remote fixes in a timely, proactive manner. The technology will be incorporated into Lumenant’s dynamic solution for property groups like Affinity Living Communities.

SmartHQ Pro empowers residents and multi-unit property managers to get more done with a single, simple, scalable appliance management solution. Property managers can manage most smart GE Appliances, including HVAC and water heating solutions, without additional external hardware or other networks.

“Senior living environments require an extra level of care. Being able to proactively address appliance issues and minimize the amount of disruption to the community is critical to residents’ wellbeing,” says Jeremy Miller, Senior Commercial Director, GE Appliances. “That’s what attracted us to working with Lumenant. They understand technology solutions in a way that goes beyond providing a solution — they focus on positive impact for both the resident and the customer, and so do we.”

“Having the ability to control PTAC units in our clients’ properties through the integration of SmartHQ Pro is a game changer,” says Steve Kopf, Lumenant Founder and CEO. “We are now able to offer complete transparency to a property manager – not to mention the ability to monitor and update all of their HVAC units from a single source which can be essential in memory care buildings.”
