Appliances that are wi-fi connected or otherwise “smart”, are popping up in several appliance categories and brands. We've been seeing connected appliances at the major trade shows for many years. These features have for the most part been futuristic, but now they are more than just a curiosity. Many brands are jumping into “smart” appliances with apps, bluetooth and/or wifi capability, interactive touch screens, and more. Here are just a few brands that are already in the game. GE, Whirlpool, Samsung, LG, Dacor, Jenn-Air, and more.

Smart appliance features have been integrated into appliance lineups as standard features, and prospective appliance buyers are requesting them. Here are three “smart” capabilities from Jenn-Air that are catching on in appliances.

1. Energy Saving Smart Features with Nest

Nest intelligence takes the powerful Jenn-Air connected appliances to a whole new level of innovation and convenience.
