A Smarter Kitchen for the Holidays

A Smarter Kitchen for the Holidays

When you look forward to the holidays, you probably think about presents, holiday figures and twinkle lights. Maybe you think about friends and family around the table, enjoying a meal and each other’s company - or maybe you just can’t wait for eggnog! The reality, though, is that you’re probably spending most of your time in the kitchen. Thankfully, there’s new tech available to help you make sure you don’t miss out on any of the festivities this holiday season! 

Deck the halls with personal tech

Your kitchen is one of the most personal rooms in your entire home and it’s worth taking the extra time to personalize it with the right functionality to fit your life. Features like built-in audio or video screens, smart appliances and voice-controlled smart home automation give you the opportunity to personalize your kitchen to suit your needs for not only everyday living, but for special entertaining, too.

An extra set of hands

There are numerous options available for smart appliances like refrigerators, ovens and “hubs” like, the Google Home, or Amazon’s Echo. And while these might seem a little unnecessary at first, it’s worth taking time to consider the added convenience of having them in your home. Having an app connected to your oven means you won’t have to miss THE game (Go Blue!) or your favorite holiday movie, and that smart refrigerator can text you a picture of its contents and save you from a second trip to the store! Connect these smart appliances with a hub like, and you’ve got an extra set of hands in the kitchen - even when you’re not at home!

Maximizing safety and convenience

With hectic schedules, streams of visitors and a lot on your plate, you might just forget to turn off the stove, turn off the lights or feel like you need to be in a multitude places at once. By incorporating the right smart technologies, you can maximize safety AND convenience in your kitchenwith a stove or oven that can warn you that they’ve been left on - instead of hearing about it from your smoke detector. You can also increase your energy efficiencies with smart appliances, which helps the planet (and your wallet). 

If a smarter kitchen sounds like something that might be on your wish list this holiday, give us a call! Smart home integration pros at automation Design + Entertainment are ready to help you create the right package for you and your home.
