Buying Appliances? Consider Smart Ones
With the rise of artificial intelligence, innovators are constantly finding new ways to “get smart”—with phones, televisions, cars, and now, appliances. While they’re at it, they’re also discovering ways to connect more devices together. The next time you’re in need of an appliance, consider how AI could take your home to the next level.
What are smart appliances?
Simply put, these appliances utilize a web-enabled computer to perform specific functions. This could include refrigerators that allow you to control the temperature or turn off the ice maker without touching it, or even being in the same room. Or getting notifications on how much time is left on your dryer cycle.
How do I use them?
Some smart appliances have their own AI systems that can be controlled by an application on your smartphone. Others can pair with digital assistants such as Amazon’s Alexa or Google Assistant. Simply control each device with a touch of your finger or the sound of your voice. Each appliance is different and has its own set of unique features designed to make your life easier.
Take LG’s SmartThinQ for example. This technology can be incorporated into several appliances including the television, fridge, washer and dryer and more. This system has its own AI system, but plays well with Alexa or Google Assistant, too.
What are the benefits?
While smart appliances aren’t for everyone, many people enjoy the convenience of being able to control several aspects of their home on their one mobile device and achieving consistent, efficient, timely results. Tired of running out of milk? Use Amazon Virtual Dash to automatically restock your fridge. Don’t want to listen to the dishwasher run for hours when you get home from work? Schedule its cycle to start after you go to bed. Ever open your fridge to discover it stopped working sometime that day? Smart appliances can detect and diagnose issues before you do. There are many possibilities on how smart appliances can work for you.
