Samsung Launches IoT Enabled Clothing Care Dresser

Samsung's Internet connected Air-Dresser

Wouldn’t it be amazing if all the clothes in your closet are ready to use and as good as new that too controlled remotely via your mobile or PC?

Samsung Electronics Co. showcased a new garment care appliance that allows users to remove dust, odor, and even germs from clothes at home. The South Korean tech giant unveiled the Air Dresser, which provides a four-level garment care program: air, steam, dryer, and purifier. It will bolster the connectivity among different home appliances through its SmartThings app.

Amalgamation of different technologies

Samsung said the Air Dresser is comprised of various know-how of its home appliances, including the steam technology of its washers, odor treatment system of refrigerators and filtration of air purifiers.

Samsung Electronics stated that the Air Dresser reflects the lifestyles of millennials, claiming the new product will deliver users a new clothes refresher experience. The Air Dresser utilizes air and steam, which are sprayed at the top and the bottom, to effectively remove dust and odor from garments.

This Air Dresser comes with an exclusive hanger that is capable of cleaning the inside of clothes. Samsung said the product produces less noise and vibration as it cleans clothes by spraying air. It applies different air strength depending on the materials of clothes, providing more customized cleaning cycles.

The company added the Air Dresser can remove 99 percent of dust on clothes in 25 minutes. The Air Dresser is also significant as it comes with a filtration system so that dust and odor do not remain inside the product and contaminate other clothes.

 Clothing care with germ kill feature

The garment care appliance also boasts advanced sterilization features. Samsung said the product can nearly eliminate harmful germs people can encounter in everyday lives, including colon bacillus.  Air Dresser will be beneficial in terms of health since fine dust, which has become a problem in South Korea, can be removed. Exposure to the dust can lead to health issues.

The Air Dresser connects to Samsung’s SmartThings application, which recommends different clothing care courses depending on materials. Samsung also introduced the My Closet service, which delivers information on clothes such as recommended courses on the Air Dresser, by scanning their barcode. The product will be released in four colors: gold, brown, rose and white.
