The world of smart appliances and connected appliances is just starting in the smart home automation industry, and is expected to grow exponentially over the coming years.
There are smart refrigerators and smart toaster ovens, smart stoves, smart coffee makers – you name it. These smart appliances have some rather fantastic features. You might be at the store, and have forgotten your list. No problem. Take out your smart phone, open the app, and see what’s inside of your refrigerator.
But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. A smart appliance might tell you that you’re low on milk, that you forgot to put detergent in the dishwasher, or if the appliance needs a filter change.
One topic currently under much discussion is securing these devices. There has been speculation that a hacker might be able to access your WiFi and steal private data via your coffee maker. Everyone is talking about this, and working to solve the potential issue at this time.
Nonetheless, there are tremendous benefits to owning smart appliances such as more electrical efficiency, lower cost of operation, and, they make your life a little bit easier. More than a few companies now offer, for example, smart refrigerators, but to drop a couple of names, Samsung and LG seem to be leading the charge to smart appliance use.
