Smart appliances take account of actions automatically by crunching statistics to aid in automation and create more opportunities for savings. They can be remotely controlled by a remote user or app on different smart phones, tablet computers and laptops. Smart kitchen appliances are becoming more common place as people want the convenience of smart washing machines, smart refrigerators and smart light bulbs in their smart homes. Smart appliances make cooking, cleaning and other home chores more efficient by collecting and analyzing data like the temperature outside, the time spent cooking, and the duration of the washing or drying cycle.
The Dyson vacuum cleaners are just one example of smart appliances. The lightweight and easily moved vacuum cleaner is connected to a smartphone via Bluetooth. The detailed information collected by the Dyson vacuum cleaner helps the manufacturer to fine tune its advanced algorithms that determine how to optimize the performance of the vacuum cleaner. Smart appliances like smart fridges and smart washing machines also collect data like the temperature outside, the time spent inside the house and the length of the washing cycle. The Dyson vacuum cleaners and smartphone integration enable the homeowner to see and track their energy consumption which allows them to plan and act accordingly.
Another smart appliance that has been in the market for several years is the smart clothes washer/drying dryer. A customer loads the detergent into the dryer and sets the timer. When the timer is done, the device sends a text message to the owner to remove the clothes. The laundry appliance notifies the customer when it is done loading and flushes the clothes with water and heat. The idea behind smart appliances is to replace a regular washing machine with a smart washing machine or smart drying machine by saving water and energy.
Smart appliances like smart air conditioners and smart refrigerators allow the homeowners to keep a comfortable temperature inside the house during summers and winters. Smart air conditioners monitor the temperature and adjust its temperature automatically based on the forecasted temperatures outside. It has an integrated light sensor that triggers the system when the temperature becomes too hot or too cold. The Dyson air cleaner and washing machine are two examples of smart appliances that help save energy and money.
Smart appliances that help the homeowners can also be remotely controlled through the Smarthq app. This is a GPS enabled smartphone app that is specifically designed to control smart appliances, like the smart fridge and the smart washing machine. Users can add and drop tasks from their smartphone to complete chores around the house. The smart app stores the data of the users’ chores so that the homeowner does not need to manually input the data each time they check the data. This saves time and energy.
The other smart home appliance that can be accessed via the smart app is the smart phone. Through the smart phone, people can control the water, the climate, the lights and other essential appliances in the home network. Wi-Fi direct can also be used to control the smart appliances, such as the fridge, television, and the baby monitor. A traditional computer can also be hooked up to the Wi-Fi direct so that it becomes possible to do the data transfers via the computer itself.
