Is a Smart Refrigerator for Me?

Ben Stout Construction takes pride in building homes with beautiful and functional amenities. Generally, custom or new construction home builds can allow buyers to choose from a variety of upgrade options, including upgrading appliances like opting for a smart fridge. 

Smart Refrigerator Capabilities

A smart refrigerator features a touch screen interface and the ability to connect to other devices over wi-fi. On the touchscreen, you can coordinate your family calendar, to-do lists, notes, and photos. You can look up a recipe and have it read out loud as you cook. Set food expiration date alerts and create a shopping list to sync with your phone. Interior cameras allow you to check for eggs or milk while at the store. Many have built-in coffee makers, the ability to heat water and sensors to open or securely close the door. Of course, features vary by model and brand, so look for the model that includes exactly what you want.

Are there Drawbacks to a Smart Fridge?

Put your concerns to rest. The possibility of hacking a smart fridge is no worse than anything else on your wi-fi network and protected with proper security on your modem and router.  Software updates over wi-fi keep your model up to date. Although there are more parts like sensors and cameras, manufacturers design smart refrigerators with the same average lifespan of regular refrigerators.  

Depending on the construction stage of your home and your financing, Ben Stout Construction offers the option for many exciting upgrades, including smart fridges.
