Panasonic announced last week the expansion of its line of smart home appliances in conjunction with the launch of a cloud-based service dedicated to Panasonic’s home appliances.
Panasonic Smart App will be available from late September on the Google Play store for Android smart-phones, and will allow users to remotely operate their appliances, program settings, and see the energy savings of each appliance.
In reality, Panasonic has already been providing cloud services to owners of the latest models of its 3-Star Bistro steam microwave oven and induction heating steam rice cooker, which were launched earlier this year, but the new smart appliances will include air conditioners, refrigerators, healthcare products and more.
The smart app will allow users the opportunity to control their air conditioners remotely, check if the refrigerator is running efficiently, and allow users to track device malfunctions.
