The Home Appliance Renaissance

Finally, another contributing factor to the in-home renaissance is the growth of smart-home adoption. According to Parks Associates, 19 percent of U.S. broadband households plan to buy a smart major appliance in the next 12 months.

On that front, as the appliance industry continues its push into smart home, vendors are increasingly looking to the voice-control ecosystems of Amazon and Google to help extend their beachheads. High-end brands such as Jenn-Air are linking control of their cooking appliances to Alexa and Google Home control. Appliance owners will be able to control such functions as preheating and timers, and change temperatures and cooking modes, via voice commands over the home’s Wi-Fi network.
