Make your home smarter with Smart Appliances

What’s a Smart Appliance?

At the recent *Pacific Coast Builder Conference (PCBC) a major theme seemed to be Smarter Homes. Subjects such as connected homes, structured wiring, and interoperability were covered in presentations over the two day conference.

In appliances, several manufacturers featured smart appliances with wi-fi capabilities. GE, Jenn-Air, and Viking all offered some form of remote operation. Here’s a quick look at just one of the offerings:

Hi-Tech Appliances for Your Home #1

Wi-Fi Enabled Wall Ovens and Ranges

Interested in Hi-Tech remote control enabled appliances? Several appliance manufacturers have introduced remote controlled appliances that take advantage of 21st century computer technology to make your appliances “smart”. This might mean an appliance with a temperature probe that’s accessible remotely or even appliances that can be controlled remotely from miles away using wi-fi on either an iPhone or Android device. Here are three brands that have jumped into wireless enabled ranges and ovens within the last couple of years, GE, Dacor, and now Viking. Jenn-Air is getting ready to launch a wi-fi enabled oven, and others are sure to join.

GE Brillion

GE Brillion

GE Brillion is a wi-fi app that communicates with either iPhone or Android, and can be used to pre-heat your oven, get an alert when the food is ready, or adjust the temperature from your easy chair. GE was early to show a wi-fi enabled oven, and the Brillion app seems to be practical and designed to have wide appeal.

Here’s how GE describes this capability:

Dacor Discovery IQ

Discovery-IQ

Dacor’s Discovery™ Series Wall Oven and 48″ Range both come with a 7″ LCD glass touch screen panel. It’s a high-tech experience from the 1GHZ processor to stereo sound, and complete Wi-Fi connection capability through the built-in Discovery IQ Controller that enables users to research new recipes or view demonstrations throught their home Wi-Fi network. The oven will even text you when your food is cooked. Here’s how Dacor describes the Discovery™ IQ:

The IQ eliminates the guesswork associated with preparing popular dishes and family recipes by way of a pre-programmed guide. It enables users to prepare a wide range of dishes to perfection with the touch of a finger. Simply select the desired recipe from the display menu, insert the dish, initiate the program and relax as the oven takes care of the rest.

Viking

iDevice Accessory

iDevice

Viking has taken a different approach by offering an accessory from iDevice that has a meat thermometer connected to a separate digital temperature readout that can be accessed remotely by Bluetooth® via an Apple or Android device. The iDevice enables Bluetooth® monitoring from up to 200 feet away.
