Siemens has announced new products set to further its vision of a world where connectivity, smart technology and design can help create a seamless life. Roland Hagenbucher, Managing Director, Siemens Home Appliances says the Internet of Things is making its way into the laundry room with the new iQ800 laundry care duo.
He said: “The iQ800 washing machine passes on all its sensor information to the iQ800 dryer via the intelligentDry feature, so the dryer knows, for example, how much laundry has been washed and at which speed it was spun and it chooses the best drying program based on this information.”
The dryer cleans its condenser and lint filter automatically, making it the most convenient dryer in the world, he explained.
MOST CONNECTED SIEMENS HOME APPLIANCES (…) CAN NOW BE CONTROLLED VIA THE CURRENTLY ESTABLISHED VOICE ASSISTANTS.
Mr Hagenbucher used his presentation to demonstrate the rst oven with a door that can be opened via voice control – without the user having to lift a single finger.
He said: “Fingers covered in dough and the heavy baking tray in both hands – how great it would be if the oven door simply opened on command.”
Using an Alexa speaker, he said: “Alexa, tell the oven to open sesame,” and the oven door duly opened.
Mr Hagenbucher said: “It’s not just for ovens that voice control is a hot topic which is developing at a rapid pace. Most connected Siemens home appliances like cookers, coffee machines, extractor hoods, dishwashers, washing machines and dryers can now be controlled via the currently established voice assistants. Voice control of home appliances is now even possible via smartwatch”.
