Smart Washing Machine: Is it worth investing?

Listing down the household chores of the day, laundry is the word that makes me frown each time. Reason being, I do not like doing it at all, and I believe I am not the only one who confidently declares this. Am I right? Well, call me a lazy bee or a slacker, but I truly think of escaping the scene every time which obviously cannot be done. So, I definitely required an alternate solution to that. Something quick and easy!! And to no surprise, again I have reached to the point where I greatly appreciate the efforts of our IoT professionals who are striving to get the best for all of us, changing our lifestyles, making it more luxurious and comfy.

Recalling some of the previous miraculous innovations by our experts, the list is pretty long including smart ovens, smart coffee makers, smart dishwashers, smart thermostats, smart air conditioners, smart dryers and more. And today we are here to review 'Smart Washing Machines' and let you know about all the necessary features it has to offer to its users.

So let us begin our journey!!

Smart Washing Machine: An Overview

Just like other smart devices, a smart washing machine works in a similar manner. It is capable of connecting to your smart home network and provides you with some really exciting features.

Benefitting from the smart technology, the smart washing machine can remotely be operated by using your smartphone or tablet which is achieved by installing a smart washing machine app. The machine can be scheduled in advance and be controlled from wherever you are, either on the road, getting late in the mall during shopping or sitting in your office, simply tap on your smartphone and instruct the smart washing machine to take over the laundry procedures.

Smart Washing Machine Features: What Can A Smart Washing Machine Do?

  • The smart washing machine is an ideal fit for your connected smart home. The Wi-Fi integration allows you to connect your machine to your smartphone which surely delivers pretty handy support for running your laundry procedures efficiently. You can remotely start your smart washing machine anytime, anywhere.
  • With massive advancements and the induction of the latest voice assistant capabilities, the smart washing machines are now compatible with voice control systems like Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and Bixby. Therefore, now you can also manage your laundry with the help of simple voice commands.
  • You can conveniently monitor your wash cycles via your smartphones.
  • Once the wash cycles are finished, you will be notified on your handset.
  • Referring towards different fabrics, you can download new wash cycle for a specific material. A smart approach to perfectly get your laundry done!!
  • The smart washing machines come with built-in sensors that allow the machine to determine how dirty are the clothes and then select the right amount of water and the detergents automatically to incur the best possible results.
  • Some models come with detergent dispensers and send an alert to your smartphone when your machine is low on soap. Moreover, it can also be set to automatically place an order on the Amazon store for buying more.
  • Talking about the incorporation of some more smart sensors, the machine will notify you when it is the time for its regular maintenance. Moreover, if it is damaged, you will be alerted to get it repaired.
  • Similar to other smart home devices, the smart washing machines can monitor the local consumption energy rates and automatically turns off during peak hours, thus saves you good amounts.
  • You may find some models featuring two different wash tubs that are capable of washing two different loads with different cycles and temperatures. Both wash tubs can be set to run at the same time.

Are Smart Washing Machines Safe?

Automated machines have usually been questioned by the people who like performing the complete task on their own. It is because they feel uncomfortable using such handy technologies. On the other hand, considering various features of the smart washing machines, I believe them to be much safer than the regular models. Have a look at the following observed situations:

  • The smart app instantly notifies you if there is some problem with your machine, either you are at home or away. This features definitely receives my thumbs up as using a regular machine, you will never get to know the state of your machine if any problem occurs while you leave the house for some time and you might end up with flooded room on your return.
  • The wash cycles are unable to start remotely if there is a lack of water supply or the door is not properly closed.

Are Smart Washing Machines Worth the Money You Pay?

While surveying the market, I have come across a wide range of smart washing machines holding different price tags. Initially, when these machines were introduced, they were pretty pricey, but now with the passage of time, you can find a smart washing machine with reasonable price. However, still, they are heavy on your pockets as compared to the non-smart washing machines.

Considering the worth of a smart washing machine, it significantly depends upon your lifestyle and of course how much you are comfortable with the remote access and its capabilities. However, if you are a technology lover and enjoy having quick controls in your hand, then a smart washing machine will be an ideal choice for you.
