When thinking about refrigerators, it feels odd that there is anything else left that can be done to the design which makes it smart. However, Samsung has done it again. Refrigerators can now be part of the IOT world by connecting it to your phone. Before we talk about all the new things that you can do with this internet enabled refrigerator and how it can help you make better choices, it is necessary to focus on the normal refrigerator features that have been taken up a notch by Samsung.
Beside the savvy name of the Family Hub, it can truly serve the entire family because it is a huge 810-liter fridge. It comes with a triple cooling facility that proves that Samsung has not forgotten the main need behind a refrigerator. Samsung has also included a way to leave notes on the fridge without having to stick anything on the actual surface of the Family Hub.
Features of the smart refrigerator
Moving on to the technological wonders of these refrigerators, it can actually be said that the possibilities are endless. The refrigerator comes with a large 21-inch touchscreen along with Samsung’s voice control assistant Bixby. Voice control seems very handy, especially in the kitchen. When asked for other possibilities that this new refrigerator will bring along with it, “Family Hub offers a wide range of smart features that allow consumers to do what they could not do before. These include syncing up food storage, keeping family members better connected and organized and providing enhanced entertainment,” said Saurav Katyal, Director, Consumer Electronics Business, Samsung India.
In regard to entertainment, you can stream from your phone to the Family Hub like you would on a normal TV. This gives the Family Hub a great advantage on why people would want to invest in it. The addition of a camera also helps you see and understand exactly what is going on with your fridge. This is a feature we did not know we wanted until we got it. This feature is ideal for that annoying grocery store trip where you forget the neatly organized list of things to buy on the kitchen counter. You can just check inside your fridge while at the grocery store to see if you are forgetting something important. Furthermore, the camera also helps you label food items with digital expiration dates so, you know when to use something or if there is anything that you need to throw out.
Speaking of investment, the Family Hub Smart & Best Refrigerator by Samsung will definitely pull on the purse strings. It sells for a whopping Rs 280,000 in India. However, Samsung is doing the utmost to make it an attractive deal for consumers. The Family Hub is available for pre-order right now on both Amazon and the official Samsung store online. If you pre-order the Family Hub then the company will throw in its latest smartphone which is the Samsung Galaxy S9 for free. This is one of the most attractive part of the deal.
