  • With IoT-based preventative maintenance, Jacuzzi is reducing maintenance costs and has the potential to save millions with their new connected hot tubs.
  • With the Particle team accelerating development, they helped Jacuzzi bring remote temp monitoring and management to their newest line of smart hot tubs.

Conclusion

For Particle and Jacuzzi, this IoT project proved immensely successful. With Particle’s engineering service, Particle Studios, Jacuzzi had the engineering fidelity they needed to deploy an IoT product at scale. Particle’s team of engineers helped Jacuzzi tackle the most challenging parts of building a IoT product from hardware, firmware development, to manufacturing. At the end of the project, Jacuzzi shipped thousands of smart hot tubs to market and plan to connect the majority of their hot tubs within the next 5 years.
