Top Technology Ideas To Add to Your Kitchen

We’re living in the 21st century, which means you can have a beautiful and technology-savvy kitchen at the same time. As you remodel and upgrade your kitchen, why not incorporate a few of these impressive, exciting, and convenient technology advancements? 

Smart Appliances

Every kitchen needs a microwave. So if you want to incorporate more advanced technology into your home, the microwave is an easy place to start. Swap your “old-fashioned” microwave with a smart microwave that offers an LED touchscreen interface, proximity sensors with adapting displays, and voice control systems that link to Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant. Many smart microwave brands even make it possible to start your microwave using your mobile device — even if you’re miles away! 

A smart stove offers many of the same features. You can connect to WiFi, utilize voice activation, and so much more. For example, if you need to know how much cooking time you have left or what temperature the pot has reached, simply ask Amazon’s Alexa or Google Assistant. 

Smart Lighting

Gone are the days of flipping a single light switch to brighten your kitchen. Smart lighting gives you the ability to control your kitchen lights, their brightness, and even their color. Smart lights sync to an app on your phone, so you can turn the lights on before you even get home. This is a very helpful feature on dark nights or when your hands are full of grocery bags. Of course, just like your smart appliances, smart lighting can also be controlled by voice commands with the use of Amazon’s Alexa or Google Assistant. 

Smart Windows

Just when you thought your kitchen couldn’t get any smarter, smart glass can be used to build smart windows with WiFi connectivity. This allows you to adjust the tint level in response to the sun’s angle or intensity. 

The benefits of smart windows go beyond simply being easy on your eyes. Direct sunlight can fade the color of your cabinets and countertops over the years. Smart windows can be programmed to tint when the sun is brightest in order to protect against sun damage. Doing this also keeps your home cooler in the summer to decrease monthly electric bills.
