Wizard collection of wi-fi appliances will be available in the summer
Hoover has launched the UK’s first family of Wifi-enabled appliances with its Wizard range at the Euronics showcase.
The range includes a 78-litre oven, hob, hood, fridge-freezer and a selection of washing machines and 16-place settings dishwashers and allows consumers to control them remotely via an Android or Apple app or Windows.
This app allows users to monitor energy consumption, have access to favourite programmes, receive alert messages and view the status of their appliances and programmes while on the go.
Steve Macdonald, trade marketing director of Hoover freestanding division, commented: “Our new Wizard range offers retailers a truly unique proposition with consumers no longer needing to be at home to stay in control. They can preheat the oven from their desk, put a wash on while walking the dog or even wash the dishes from the gym.
“Retailers and consumers alike have always trusted Hoover to bring them something new and with Wizard we have done exactly that. Throughout our 100-year history, our goal has been to make consumers lives easier and this latest technological innovation now allows them to stay in touch with their home from anywhere in the world!”
Macdonald concluded: “The future has arrived with Hoover Wizard as it is the first and only appliance collection to create a truly Wifi connected kitchen. This is an industry first and a significant step forward in the development of the connected home.
The Wizard range will officially launch in summer.
