Smart Ovens and Appliances
Connected ovens that do more than cook and connected fridges that also entertain are two emerging trends in the kitchen of the future. This technology can be used in individual units or in community spaces.
The Samsung Smart Fridge comes with an eight-inch video screen that displays recipes, memos and calendars and provides access to the Internet. From this screen, the resident can access the radio or remotely access programming that’s being played on other TVs in the community.
In a busy community, convenience and monitoring is key. LG HomeChat allows the homebuyer to remotely check on the status of LG appliances and complete tasks such as remotely starting ovens. This service can be a key marketing point for developers, as it also allows residents to see if anyone else is using a community kitchen.
By including smart kitchen tech in each apartment and in shared community kitchens, multifamily builders can market convenience and entertainment.
