It looks like we’ll be remodeling our kitchen within the next 6 months. As such, I’m trying to make informed decisions as to which appliances I should purchase for my smart home. We’ll be replacing the oven, dishwasher, and fridge.
Unfortunately, I think it’s just too early for this market. Perhaps in 3 years we’ll really start to see smart kitchen appliances. But right now the options are limited and expensive. Unfortunately for me, I don’t think we will be able to wait until the market matures, so we may be stuck.
Seems that Samsung is probably the best horse to back. Not only as a ST customer, but because they already make large kitchen appliances and have committed to making them, smarter.
So my questions are:
Who are the players?
What is the timeframe?
What are some of the things you want your smart appliances to do?
