49 Connected Home Ideas

From Instantly Replenishable Appliances to Holographic Home Robots

— April 3, 2016 — Art & Design
From full-fledged smart kitchen systems that streamline cooking to transformative smart vacuums, modern connected home ideas are characterized by the seamless user experience they offer and the time and effort they save consumers.

The next generation of the Whirlpool Smart Kitchen Suite will feature built-in Amazon Dash replenishment functions, making it easy to stock up on detergent. The system will also feature a complimentary app that provides recipe suggestions to users and incorporates several smart appliances such as the Smart Front Control Range, the Smart Dishwasher and the Smart French Door Bottom Mount Refrigerator.

Separately, the Hamilton Beach Set & Forget Cooker is a smart slow-cooker that can be programmed and left without any cause for concern.
