Smart Appliances: Yes/No Or Too Much

 

Smart appliances are designed to make our lives easier in every way possible but come with a hefty price tag, so we’re looking at the pros and cons and whether it’s worth splurging on a one:

What are smart appliances?

If you don’t already have a smart appliance in your home, you may be wondering what they are exactly. Smart appliances are at the forefront of cutting-edge technology for your home and are designed to take appliance functionality to the next level thanks to microprocessors they are fitted with that connect them to the internet and allow you to control them from your smartphone or smart home system.

Pros

  • One of the best features of smart appliances is that they are designed to be as convenient as possible and can be controlled from your phonetablet or smart home system. With smart appliances, you can turn your oven on to preheat or brew some coffee without having to walk into the kitchen.
  • Another great feature of smart appliances is that they are able to self-diagnose errors, so you don’t have to sit around and wonder what’s gone wrong with your washing machine or why your fridge is buzzing.
  • Most smart appliances are designed to be energy efficient, saving you money on electricity in the long run.

 

Cons

  • As with most tech these days, smart appliances can be pretty pricey, costing you quite a bit more than your average home appliances.
  • Similarly, they can also be more expensive to repair as they have more components, especially tech components, than your average household appliances.
  • In order to work properly, they require an internet connection. That means that if your internet isn’t good, you won’t be able to unlock the full potential of your smart appliance.

 

Smart appliances to try

If you’re like us and are already thinking of the days when laundry finally does itself, and the dishwasher packs itself, a smart appliance is definitely a step in the right direction. On the other hand, if you’re totally convinced that a remote controlled dryer is slightly extra, we hear you and can totally relate. Still, it might be a cool party trick the next time you have friends over?
