Smart Homes Receive Water Upgrade With New Technology From Culligan International

Groundbreaking Culligan Connect™ Wi-Fi Mobile App Gives Homeowners Control Over Remote Water Monitoring

ROSEMONT, Ill., July 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Advancing technologies continue to increase the automated intelligence of our homes, but until now, water systems have been largely left behind. That's why Culligan International, a world leader in the treatment of water, aims to revolutionize the current state of smart homes with the introduction of the Culligan Connect™ Wi-Fi mobile app. The latest breakthrough in consumer water monitoring, Culligan Connect provides an added value to high efficiency (HE) water softeners by giving homeowners the freedom to control their system through a mobile device, delivering peace of mind while they are home or away.

"Whether you're tracking daily water usage or system efficiency, Culligan Connect makes it easy to regulate your home's water softener," says Judd Larned, President North America for Culligan. "With a simple tap on the app, users gain personal access to system diagnostics, flow controls and more."

The Culligan Connect Wi-Fi accessory is easily installed by a trained local technician and includes several unique features to help homeowners stay in control of their water. Not only can users conserve water and energy by tracking water usage, but they can also bypass treated water for outdoor cleaning and watering applications. What's more, the smart system sends push notifications when salt supplies are low, alerts users of unexpected water flow when away, and shares diagnostic reports to help monitor the system's status.

Culligan Connect is currently compatible with Culligan high efficiency (HE) water softeners in the United States and Canada, and users can download the free mobile app via the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. To learn more about Culligan Connect or to find your local Culligan dealer visit
