There’s been a lot of talk about smart appliances lately but what does that even mean?
Sorry, it won’t load itself (that’s what children and grandchildren are for, right?) and it won't beat you at scrabble (yet) but there are other advantages to buying a dishwasher with smart capabilities.
The options vary depending on the manufacturer but right now the main benefits are:
- Remote control for your appliances – using the app on your smart phone switch your appliance on or off wherever you are
- Recommendations – the best program for your load
- Future proofing – download new programs and updates
- Diagnostics – look up fault codes, book service appointments
Here's the rundown of what is offered by some of our favourite brands:
HAIER: Connected living
Haier SmartHQ™ app allows you to connect your Wi-Fi enabled appliances. Use it to control your appliances from anywhere. Turn on the dishwasher after
you leave the house - perfect for those busy mornings when you only remember as you rush out the door! By setting notifications it can let you know when the dishwasher is done!
Ai technology also improves performance - the Auto wash program uses sensors to detect how dirty your dishes are and set the ideal wash, reducing unnecessary water and energy use for a more sustainable clean.
