According to a recent survey conducted by Thermador, 42% of Americans desire smart technology as part of their dream home. As integrated homes become more prominent, people are looking for ways their smart homes – and smart appliances – can help them simplify their day.

Luckily, Thermador offers an entire kitchen suite of connected products to make life easier. Check out our guide below for five effortless ways your smart appliances, enabled with Home Connect™, can streamline your routine!

Easy Use & Care Manual Access:

Beginning your journey with connected appliances can sound intimidating, but it’s easy with Home Connect™. After pairing your appliance, your Use & Care Guide will automatically be stored within the Home Connect™ app for instant access whenever you need it.

Whether you are new to cooking in a Steam Oven, or you’re not sure how to best adjust your Wine Column temperatures, you are just a tap away from instructions and helpful guides.

Remote Start and Control: 

One of the key benefits of smart appliances enabled with Home Connect™ is their remote capabilities. Whether you are busy in another room, or running errands out and about, your smart appliances’ remote functions can help you manage everyday tasks and chores quickly and efficiently.

For example, you can start your day right with fresh-brewed coffee made with the press of a button. With the Thermador Built-in Fully Automatic Coffee Machine with Home Connect™, you can remote start your favorite beverage from the comfort of your bed, or while getting ready for your day.

If you are in a hurry to get dinner on the table, but tied up on a video meeting, let Home Connect™ do the work for you! Preheat your Wall Oven with one tap on your smart device. Once you’ve popped your meal in the oven, receive notifications to let you know when your dish is ready to be enjoyed. It’s the ultimate convenience.

Or, while you’re at the grocery store picking up fresh fruits and veggies, you can adjust the temperature of your crisper drawers in your Thermador Refrigerator to customize the ideal environment to house the particular produce you chose.

Hands-Free Access:

When life gets busy, it may feel like you simply don’t have enough hands. Opt for hands-free control of your smart appliances with Home Connect™ integrations. When you pair your smart appliance with our variety of partners – such as Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant – you can control your smart appliance with the sound of your voice.

To keep things clean while tidying up the kitchen say “Start my dishwasher,” and your Thermador Dishwasher will take care of the rest. Or, maybe you need an extra hand while you’re busy chopping veggies for dinner. Say “Preheat my wall oven to 350,” and your Thermador appliance will be ready for cooking in no time.

Helpful Reminders for Peace of Mind:

Not only is Home Connect™ a handy tool, but it can also be a safety measure. When your smart appliances are connected to your smart device, you can receive helpful alerts to make sure your kitchen is functioning at its best.

Perhaps the kids forgot to close the refrigerator while getting a snack. Your smart device will receive a notification to let you know the fridge is open, helping to ensure your groceries stay at proper temperature – and keep your energy bills on track. Or, maybe you left home wondering if you’ve left the oven on. With Home Connect™, you can check its on/off status from your smart device for total peace of mind.

Recipe Ideas for Mealtime:

Sometimes one of the most stressful daily decisions is what to eat for dinner. Luckily, Home Connect™ can help with that too, with a variety of integrations that take the guesswork out of mealtime.

Chefling, for example, can help you plan, shop and cook with ease by providing recipe suggestions by ingredient, and helping to manage your pantry and refrigerator inventory. Similarly, SideChef offers thousands of recipes, cooking instructions, food education, meal planning features and more to make mealtime a breeze.
