BENTON HARBOR, Mich., March 22, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- With its new brand campaign, Bound By Nothing™, and limitless approach to today's luxury audience, JennAir invites owners to experience a frictionless kitchen experience. Coming to market in late 2018, the JennAir digital platform delivers heightened engagement to consumers and is seamlessly integrated into the new suite of JennAir products. The platform brings faster, smarter services to deliver the meaningful, custom interactions consumers expect in today's connected world.
Connecting owners directly to JennAir's unparalleled service and knowledge epicenter is yet another way the brand is living through its Bound By Nothing campaign, moving beyond category conventions to deliver what luxury consumers crave. The digital platform boasts a powerful backbone to control appliances remotely1, engage the JennAir call center, beckon specialists with the touch of a finger, enhance food journeys, and access personalized insights — all in the pursuit of experiential luxury.
"Today's luxury consumers live on their own terms; connectivity is not craved, it's expected, especially in their homes," said Alessandro Perucchetti, general manager, JennAir brand. "The technology integrated into the JennAir platform cuts across every product to personalize the ownership experience. Inherently intuitive, the technology is personal, removing complexities, rather than creating them. In collaborating with some of the best companies in the world, we are working to deliver a platform that works seamlessly within the connected ecosystem our consumer operates in daily."
JennAir owners can control — and bask — in their kitchens with the swipe of a finger to discover:
Remote Access & Real-Time Notifications
Analogue kitchen control is no more. Within the JennAir digital platform, owners can control their suite of appliances, near or far via a fluid, frictionless experience, enabling enhanced kitchen experiences like:
- Optimizing refrigerator temperatures for a perfect, ready-to-serve wine and cheese pairing
- Ensuring clean dishes upon arrival at home through remote start dishwasher cycles
- Keeping tabs on their suite of appliances with real-time notifications
Whether via home WiFi, iOS or Android devices, or voice commands with Amazon Alexa or Google Home, the JennAir brand boasts frictionless capabilities and has increased options for the individualized ownership experience.
- Google Home: Amplifying a purposeful smart home ecosystem, owners can call on the Google Assistant across Google Home devices to remotely enable appliances, through voice commands
- Amazon: With voice command capabilities across JennAir kitchen appliances, owners can control cooking, dishwasher and refrigerator settings, just "Ask Alexa." Beyond voice commands, Amazon enables "smart" shopping experiences, like supply auto-replenish through Amazon Dash Replenishment
- Apple Watch: Integrating appliance connectivity into the Apple Watch platform opens doors for owners to receive real-time, actionable notifications, even while on the go
- Nest: A Nest integration anticipates needs across the kitchen, including sensing via the Nest Learning Thermostat™ when the house is unoccupied2, providing alerts when the dishwasher has completed its cycle, or adjusting temperature to balance increased heat produced by the oven
