a day in the life with Kenmore smart appliances

June 21, 2019 by Kenmore

Ever wonder how much easier your life could be if your phone could “talk” to your appliances? Kenmore smart appliances are designed to simplify chores and keep up with your busy schedule.

Simply download the Kenmore Smart app or put Alexa to work for some next-level multi-tasking that will lighten your daily load, not to mention save you time and money.

Consider what your day might look like with a little more “smart” in your life:

6:15 a.m

The alarm isn’t set to go off until 6:30, but you’re wide-awake and ready to kick today’s butt. You feel great! In fact, last night was just quiet enough to allow you to get into bed early and read a book. With all the time you saved by automating chores through the Kenmore Smart app, you’re ahead of schedule.

Amazing how much easier chores can seem when you can tackle them on your schedule rather than allowing them to dictate your day. You set the cycle on your smart washing machine to end just as you got home, then kicked back with a glass of wine until your smartphone alerted you that the dryer cycle was done.

Sure, you only read a few pages before you couldn’t keep your eyes open anymore, but life is a marathon, not a sprint. Early to bed, early to rise — you’re ready to start this day.

7:30 a.m.

The mission: Get the kids out the door and yourself to work. Just as you start the car, you get an alert from your smart fridge that the door is open. After a quick reminder (lecture) to the kids about closing the fridge, you send your son back in to fix his mistake. You make a game out of it to see how fast he can go. It works. The kids are going to make it to school on time. It’s a win!

10 a.m.

Between conference calls, you remember you left your smart air conditioner running and have a brief panic about your power bill. You pull out your phone, open the Kenmore Smart app and turn off the AC. No sweat — literally. You go ahead and set your air conditioner to start back up before you arrive home.

11:30 a.m.

The app alerts you that your fridge will soon need a new filter. No problem. Amazon Dash Replenishment Service is connected to your Prime account and will place the order for you automatically. You’ve got laundry detergent, dishwasher pods, dryer sheets and other essentials covered by Dash Replenishment, which has reduced your last-minute trips to the grocery store by half.

Now if only there was a Dash Button to help you reduce your trips to the pricey coffee shop next to the office …

4:00 p.m.

A late client meeting is added to your schedule, and it looks like you may be stuck at work late. Your daughter has a soccer game tonight, and her mud-stained uniform is still sitting in your Kenmore Smart washer.

You whip out your phone and start the laundry. When the cycle’s done, an alert reminds you to text your daughter and tell her to throw the clothes in the dryer when she gets home from school. Luckily the drying cycle is fast, so it’ll be ready in time.

6:15 p.m.

You make it home from work, ready to get dinner fired up. You hug your daughter, who’s sporting her clean jersey, fresh from the dryer. Now the only thing left to do is Turbo Boil some water for pasta and get your crew fed and out the door to cheer on Blue Lightning.

The veggies from the other night are still fresh, thanks to your smart fridge. This fridge is so smart that it alerts you when the temperature changes for any reason. Since you can regulate the temperature remotely, your fridge is always on guard to ensure that your food stays fresher longer. A well-balanced dinner is on the table. Come and get it!

8:00 p.m.

As the team takes the field, you answer a few quick emails following up on today’s meeting before putting your phone away to watch the game. This is a big one and it’s a victory. Blue Lightning is going to the playoffs!

Your smiling daughter flashes a thumbs up from across the field as she dribbles red sports drink down the front of her jersey. Oh well. As the teams shake hands and congratulate each other on a game well played, you set the washer cycle to run a small load in the morning to get the uniform ready again. Playoffs start tomorrow — you’re ready.

9:45 p.m.

After a brief celebratory post-game frozen yogurt with the team, you herd everyone upstairs to take showers and brush teeth. You pour yourself a glass of wine, kick back on the couch and unwind. No need to schlep back to the kitchen to see if the cycle on your smart dishwasher is done. You simply ask Alexa how much time is remaining from your comfy command station on the couch.

10:30 p.m.

After a few goodnight kisses, it’s light out. Now that everyone else has been tucked in, it’s your turn. As you set the alarm for tomorrow, you ask Alexa to add sports drinks to your shopping list. Snuggling deep into your covers you tell Alexa to lower the temperature by two degrees and drift off to sleep. With a little help from your smart home devices, tomorrow you will be even more amazing.  

Put your chores on autopilot

If this isn’t what your days tend to look like right now, perhaps it’s time to put your appliances to work for you. Kenmore has a wide range of smart appliances that can simplify your life so you can worry about more important things. Like helping your daughter score a soccer scholarship.
