Connecting WiFi to Your Appliances

Who loves good WiFi? Raise your hand!

It’s true, everyone is looking for the latest and greatest.  With technology changing at a fast pace, it’s imperative that you keep it “up to date.”  The best thing is, all of this new tech is not just good for your Apps, iPhones, and Cars… even appliances are getting a tech makeover! 1C1A9466

So what’s new on the scene?

You guesses it; Home Connect & WiFi Connectivity for your appliances. 

First things first, let’s talk about ventilation.. you know, that thing you always forget to do?!


The new tech is allowing communication between your cooking equipment and ventilation systems.  Ventilation should really always be used when you’re heating up the range, but now, it will do all the thinking (and button pushing) for you.  It will automatically come on when it needs to run. Isn’t that sweet? No need to remember, just get to cooking.

**Disclaimer, this technology will not clean up the kitchen mess yet… but we are working on it ;)**


Now on to Electric cooktops.

With the new auto features, you’re able to adjust temperatures on your oven and cooking modes by way of your smart phone and iPad.  So, a.k.a. you can preheat your oven remotely.  This is SUPER helpful when:

  1. You just grabbed a Take n’ Bake pizza from Papa Murphy’s, you get stuck in traffic, and you’re going to be starving when you get home. Now, you can turn that oven on and have it hot by the time you get home.
  2. You’ve got to run some errands and you forgot to heat up that oven and… oh no! Thanksgiving just won’t be the same without that fresh meatloaf 😉
  3. Feeling lazy? Watching a great movie on the other side of the house? Mid conversation? Taking a nap? There are 100 reasons why it makes sense to be able to control your kitchen from afar!1C1A94791C1A9554

Oh, and there’s more.  The new tech gives you the ability to monitor time and temperature as well.  You can be entertaining on the porch and know that the roast will be done at a certain time and is at a certain temperature!
