Electrolux Design explores the smart home of the future
With the Internet of Things developing at a fast pace, Electrolux Design has created a vision of the smart home of the future in order to better understand how to develop products that provide best-in-class consumer experiences in a connected world.
Electrolux is committed to shaping the future of connected living and this short concept video shows what a fully connected smart home could be like and what it could offer the consumer in terms of an even more healthy, effortless and sustainable lifestyle and indoor environment.
The vision of the future smart home is one where a highly interconnected ecosystem of smart products all work together using artificial intelligence (AI) to help people organize their daily lives at home – with consumers using voice and gestures to control their environment, as well as interactive displays on walls and surfaces.
Products including robotic window and vacuum cleaners, to smart fridges, ovens, washers and dryers all feature in the video to demonstrate how the consumer of the future will be able to control an ecosystem of products throughout the home that adapt and work seamlessly with one another.
Electrolux Head of Group Design Lars Erikson said: “The world is more connected than ever before and we know that the truly smart home is well on its way to being a reality. This concept video is about envisioning an ecosystem of digitally-enhanced products and services that enhance our consumers’ lives and helps drive our ambition to deliver best-in-class consumer experiences.”
As part of its journey to delivering connected experiences, Electrolux recently acquired smart kitchen appliance company Anova and has just been announced as partner to Google’s smart home system Google Home, with both its Frigidaire Cool ConnectTM Air Conditioners and the Anova Precision Cooker being integrated into the new platform.
