Siemens unveils the true ‘smart kitchen’ with launch of Wi-Fi connected appliances and Home Connect app.
Siemens is putting you in full control of your kitchen, offering a complete range of networked products that can be controlled remotely from outside of the home. The life-changing appliances will offer more flexibility and help save you precious time, so you can focus on the important things in life.
From a single app, you can conveniently make your guests’ favourite drinks on the connected coffee machine or look on the app to see inside the refrigerator to make sure you have enough milk. And that’s not all. Home Connect offers a whole range of functions that go beyond remotely controlling your household appliances. You can pick up tasty recipes from your oven, tips on how to use the appliances and even access technical support if anything goes wrong. The free Home Connect app is now available on iOS and Android devices.

Siemens iQ700 connected oven
The Siemens Wi-Fi ready oven with Home Connect will save you precious time. Not only will you be able to preheat the oven from your desk, but you can also keep an eye on your cooking with timer notifications as well as changing the programme so your food doesn’t burn if you’re not quite ready to eat. Notifications from your oven let you know when your cooking is done – perfect for peace of mind before your dinner party guests arrive.
And if you need any inspiration, the connected oven can also dish out helpful cooking tips, videos and recipes. You can then send these preparation settings to the oven on the way back from the shops.
Connected iQ700 coffee centre
The connected built-in coffee machine will make every cup a more enjoyable experience with the new coffeePlaylist. You won’t even have to lift a finger. Guests simply select their choice on a mobile device and the order is transferred directly to the smart machine which begins making one drink after another.
The coffeeWorld function will expand the palettes of even seasoned coffee drinkers with a choice of 19 new international coffee specialities, including an Australian flat white and Dutch koffie verkeerd.
Siemens iQ500 connected refrigerator
The connected fridge allows you to check what you have in your fridge when out and about, meaning you’ll never run out of everyday essentials again. The iQ500 is equipped with two high-performance cameras that take pictures of the entire interior every time the door is closed, allowing the home owner to make informed choices quickly. Other advantages of the new feature include a Storage Guide which supplies nutritional information to help you maintain a healthy and balanced diet, and a system which sends a warning to the smartphone or tablet if the refrigerator has not been closed properly.
You’ll also get handy tips to help your food stay fresher for even longer.
