The futuristic dream has become reality.
Home appliances have added so many features each passing year, and this day has finally come at last. Now, they can all be remotely controlled via an Android app.
Panasonic Corporation has recently announced to release "Smart Appliances" which will be remotely operated with Smart App.
For instance, by simply holding your smartphone over the refrigerator, you can see how energy efficiently it's functioning each and every day. You can tell how many times you open/close the door, or how much the EcoNavi technology has run during a day. (*EcoNavi is Panasonic's green technology to reduce appliances' energy consumption by learning from the gathered sensor data. It then adjusts to the optimal energy-efficiency setting based on household eating habits.) The smartphone can tell you a recipe based on what kind of foods you have in the fridge as well. How convenient!
Also, once you preset your preferred type of detergent or softener, the washing machine automatically adjusts right amount for the load of your laundry.
"Smart Appliances" compatible with Android Smart App will include:
Panasonic's X Series room air conditioners
Top-mount refrigerator (NR-F557XV)
Drum-type washer-dryers (NA-VX8200/NA-VT8200)
EW-FA43 body composition monitor
EW-NK63 calorie meter
EW-BW53 blood pressure monitor.
3-Star Bistro steam microwave oven
The induction heating (IH) steam rice cooker
The smartphone compatible with Smart App need to have NFC functionality and NTT docomo's Osaifu-Keitai. For more detail, please go to the Panasonic's official website below.
