Our Guide to Smart Appliances

Now that you have your home set up with lightning-fast fiber internet, the sky's the limit when it comes to smart appliances. Offering remote management and alerts, smart appliances make your home easier to manage from afar. While they may be a larger investment upfront, most have energy efficiency functions built in, which can help keep your electric bills down. 

Smart appliances are those that are connected through Wi-Fi (and it’s super important that it’s strong Wi-Fi, like what you get with Luminate Broadband) and can be controlled through an app on your smartphone. Smart appliances are in their infancy and are only expected to get more advanced, more popular, and more affordable in years to come. Who doesn’t want to control the temperature in their house, start the vacuum, or feed the cat, all from the click of a button?

Here are some appliances that now have Wi-Fi connectivity and smart capabilities.

Smart refrigerators - Smart refrigerators can help keep you organized. Not only can you adjust the temperature from your app, but a smart refrigerator can also help you create grocery lists and notify you when food is about to spoil. 

Smart ovens - No more burnt cookies! Smart ovens are amazing; they can send internal temperature updates to your phone, send pictures from inside the oven, and turn off automatically when your food is done, saving energy and heartache from leaving something in too long.

Smart thermostats - Smart thermostats are great for anyone who spends time away from home. These smart appliances allow you to control the temperature in your house from anywhere in the world. 

Smart vacuum cleaners - Do you hate vacuuming? You can schedule your smart vacuum cleaner to clean while you’re out or turn it on from afar. Some even clean themselves and provide video capabilities, so they can help you keep an eye on your home while you’re out.

Smart smoke, carbon monoxide, and water monitors - These handy resources can notify you of an emergency inside your house, allowing for faster response from emergency crews.

Smart pet feeders - Smart pet feeders allow you to manage food distribution remotely. Many also come with video capabilities, so you can keep an eye on your pets while you’re out. 

Smart plugs - Never worry about leaving the iron plugged in again. With a smart power strip, you can control the power supply to any appliance plugged into the strip. This is a great way to save energy, too!

Smart pressure cookers - No need to stay at home and keep an eye on your world-famous stew anymore. With a smart pressure cooker, you can manage your dish from anywhere.
