Built-In WiFi Connect vs Optional WiFi Connect

GE Appliances has a full suite of WiFi Connect smart appliances you can monitor or control using the GE Appliances apps on your smartphone or hands-free using Amazon Alexa or the Google Assistant*.

There are two types of WiFi-enabled smart appliances: Built-In WiFi Connect and Optional WiFi Connect.


Built-In WiFi Connect

A WiFi communication card is built into the appliance allowing it to communicate with your smart phone for remote monitoring, control and notifications. This requires WiFi in your home.


Optional WiFi Connect

These appliances are WiFi Connect compatible using the optional ConnectPlus / U+ Connect module (PBX10W00Y0). To connect this appliance to the Internet you will need to purchase the ConnectPlus / U+ Connect and attach the module to your appliance through the communication port in the appliance. The ConnectPlus / U+ Connect will allow your appliance to communicate with your smart phone for remote appliance monitoring, control and notifications. This requires WiFi in your home.
