Recent industry research published by Forbes indicates that 58 percent of Americans use their smart phones in the kitchen some or all of the time. To address the growing needs of the busy, multitasking home chef, Dacor now enables customers to use smart phones or tablets to remotely control their Discovery iQ™ cooking appliances without even lifting a finger – literally.
Dacor smart cooking appliances, such as the award-winning Discovery iQ™ 48” Dual-Fuel Range launched in 2014, features the Dacor iQ Remote App. This proprietary technology makes it possible for home chefs to control the range via any smart phone or tablet. It also enables users to upgrade their devices remotely with new features, such as the unprecedented Voice Activation technology.
This new feature allows customers to control their smart appliances by voice command through the Dacor iQ Remote App, from anywhere they are connected. This elevates the level of remote convenience for the home chef. Whether entertaining outdoors, serving appetizers to guests, or running late from the office, Dacor customers can now control their iQ products conveniently and hands-free.
“Dacor has received an overwhelming response to its smart kitchen technology,” says Dacor CEO Chuck Huebner. “The modern home chef values the convenience that connected kitchen appliances provide, which is why we strive to offer smart features like Voice Activation and ongoing software upgrades that will actually improve the overall cooking experience.”
“In 2015, we will be celebrating 50 years of innovative kitchen design,” says Dacor President Steve Joseph. “The kitchen is the heart of family life, and as families evolve, so must kitchen technology. Today’s home chefs are busier than ever, and voice activation is one more feature that will help meet the needs of their demanding schedules.”
The new Voice Activation technology will be available Spring 2015 in the Discovery iQ line of products, including the Discovery iQ 48” and 36” Dual-Fuel ranges, and single and double wall ovens.
Dacor will be unveiling its new Voice Activation feature and exhibiting other smart kitchen products at Table #36 during CES Unveiled Las Vegas.
- Advanced Diagnostics is built into the range and aids in optimal product performance.
- Discovery iQ™ Recipe Box allows users to easily store recipes found online directly to the smart range (and ovens).
