Everyone loves the feeling of warm clean clothes straight from the dryer, but being chained to the laundry machine all day is never fun. Whether you want to keep any eye on delicates, do your laundry at the laundromat, or share a washer and dryer with your apartment building, this smart sensor can help you take the guesswork out of laundry day and save you time.

How It Works

The SmartDry wireless laundry sensor syncs up with your Alexa or smartphone to give you real time alerts about your dryer cycle. The sensor will let you know if delicates are getting too hot, send alerts when your clothes are dry, and let you know when the dryer has stopped. It’s a handy tool for shared apartment laundry or laundromats.

Saves Time and Energy

Dryers often run for longer than needed to completely dry clothing. The SmartDry sensor can save you time by letting you know when clothes are dry before the cycle has ended so you can start another load. The sensor can also help you save on your electric bill by reducing the amount of time your dryer is running.

Why Customers Love It

Amazon customers love this smart laundry sensor, giving it an average of 4.3 out of 5 stars. Several reviewers mentioned how much time this handy gadget saved them by reducing the drying time by up to 30 minutes per load of laundry. Customers also liked that the SmartDry sensor helped them manage laundry in large households and kept their children on top of chores.
