In recent years, and still, stories about the next generation of consumer electronics, including smart home appliances, have been published and continue to be published.
But a story published on USA Today looks like proof that smart home appliances can be a bad idea.
This evidence is not about our technology going to be inadequate! It's more like, "I'm not going to be
a) It is much more costly than the benefit it will provide
b) For users who meet the cost, the return time
We certainly have the technology to develop applications that communicate with the network.
For example, if you want to create Wi-Fi-based Whirlpool 6, designed to work in the U.S. today only during the hours when electricity is cheapest. Live household appliances that have shares are available.
By connecting these household appliances to a database of real-time electricity prices, they can only work when electricity is cheapest, but with this technology you can save a few dollars a year on your energy cost, while paying these smart home appliances much more than their standard models.
In other words, this means that the depreciation period for smart household appliances will be between 20 and 50 years, which is much longer than their own life expectancy…
Network-friendly applications, household appliances
A little over a decade ago, researchers at pacific northwest national laboratory developed a network-friendly chip that provides a full-scale Wi-Fi connection described above that is much less expensive.
This chip detects network status by monitoring only the system frequency and automatically turns off household appliances within a few seconds in response to an electrical network incident that occurs within minutes
Let's just say we're not going to be able to Ultimately, network-friendly chips were just over $50 in the retail market. This is a meaningful amount in the super-competitive white goods market.
And why would the consumer pay an extra $50 for this smart home appliance that benefits the local grid rather than the local grid?
This can only be arranged by turning the benefit into an extra-paying consumer with a network software or similar automation solutions.
In the published story; Smart home appliance manufacturers should continue their technological experiments, but for the moment, consumers are not very keen on this technology.
The story in The USA Today says that there are refrigerators with cameras and that you can connect to them with your smartphones with internet access.
And you'll be able to adjust the temperature of your ovens from your smartphones.
Unfortunately, all of these features will cause consumers to pay a few hundred dollars extra.
Grid-connected appliances... it is the Turkish translation of still such a bad idea.
"While the use of grid-friendly smart home appliances in our lives is seen as an inevitable future, the period of dissemination will depend on producers' profitability margins and regulations that will also make consumers profitable."
