Here at Winchester Kitchens, we must admit we are a sucker for technology and loving all the amazing gadgets and apps available on your mobile phones. So when we heard of the new Wi-Fi connected appliances available from our supplier Siemens, we couldn’t wait to hear more!
The Home Connect app, means you no longer need to be at home to start your washing machine or you can preheat your oven from your desk. It enables you to control all of your connected Siemens home appliances via a smartphone or tablet from wherever you are! The life-changing appliances offer more flexibility and help save you precious time, so you can focus on the important things in life.
From a single app, consumers can conveniently make their guests favourite drinks on their connected coffee machine or peek inside the refrigerator to make sure they have enough milk. And that’s not all. Home Connect offers a whole range of functions that go beyond remotely controlling your household appliances. You can pick up tasty recipes from your oven, tips on how to use the appliances and even access technical support if anything goes wrong.

Notifications from your oven let you know when your cooking is done; perfect for peace of mind before your dinner party guests arrive.
