Company Overview

FIRST, LAUNDRY MACHINES...

The THINGS in your home should be smart, not just some hub on the wall. Your laundry machines are the second-biggest use of energy in the home, the most complicated, and the least understood. We are making them smart and usable and energy-efficient.

It’s 2016. Washers and dryers shouldn’t require babysitting or have control panels better fit for an airplane. It’s time for a change. We're introducing a machine that both washes and dries laundry, is internet-connected to negotiate rates with utilities, schedule laundry for energy-optimal times of day, and provide rich user data.

Enter Marathon, the intelligent laundry machine, designed for real life.

Laundry is an almost daily task, and needs a modern solution. The average U.S. household does 6 loads of laundry a week! Even in small households, washers and dryers are scarce resources with competition — “Are my soccer socks clean?!” and “whose stuff is in the dryer?” or that sinking feeling of finding the forgotten load from yesterday, still wet in the washer.

In a multi-tenant building with shared laundry resources, the contention for resources increases exponentially, and the status, scheduling, reservation, and management problem quickly becomes ripe for a cloud-based, data-driven solution. We have built an architecture starting with data-collecting sensors combined with state-of-the-art mobile and cloud solutions for tracking and managing not just the laundry, but the availability of machines, history of use, energy consumption, and true data-driven management.
