The first live smart appliance demonstration at APPLiA

Smart, Internet-enabled appliances are entering our homes, moving our lives towards ever-greater connectivity. But how can we ensure that this increased connectivity does not also increase the complexity of home appliances for users who seek simple solutions?

Using the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the association, the Board of APPLiA's membership had the opportunity to see how interoperability will work with smart appliances. EEBUS, Energy@home and several leading European manufacturers of home appliances demonstrated the answer: washing machines and a dishwasher that speak the same language, and communicate with energy managers, smart home systems and with each other in an integrated home ecosystem, providing the benefits of smart energy management for consumers.
