Local SC Smart Home Company, Heatworks, Shines at Consumer Electronics ShowMelissa Verzwyvelt
Heatworks, the South Carolina-based company that is fundamentally reshaping the way the world heats and uses water, enjoyed an award-winning week at the largest annual consumer electronics show (CES) last week in Las Vegas. The innovators behind the MODEL 3 Water Heater and newly announced Tetra Dishwasher, garnered international attention for their innovative smart home products, design and clean-water applications.
With MODEL 3 set to ship to backers and preorders next month, Heatworks was excited to provide consumers and media alike, with a first look at the tankless water heater that fits in a carry-on bag. The reception was fantastic as MODEL 3 was named an Innovation Product Award winner at the show for its use of Heatworks' patented Ohmic Array Technology that changes the way water has been heated since the 1870's.
Heatworks also used the CES platform to announce its next consumer product, built on the same principles, mission and technological foundation as MODEL 3. Tetra, the connected countertop dishwasher is a compact reimagining of the space-hungry appliance that city-dwellers can't even fit in their kitchens. Using the same award-winning Ohmic Array Technology to heat its water to precise temperatures, Tetra cleans delicate dishes, vulnerable hard-plastics and even breakable stemmed wine-glasses, all without the fear of overheating, melting or shattering. Consumers can even watch a lobster or steak cook sous vide style in Tetra's transparent enclosure. Tetra's technology, design and user-friendliness won the hearts of consumers and media throughout the show, ultimately garnering international recognition and a coveted CES Editorial Award.
"We couldn't have asked for a better week in Vegas," said Heatworks Founder and CEO, Jerry Callahan, who was on the ground speaking with customers, partners and media throughout the show. "We knew we had something special in both MODEL 3 and now Tetra, but it's great to see the unanimous validation from our peers, excited customers and trusted media."
