The McKechnie Family LIFE Home is a cutting-edge research facility, which in large part is due to the smart home technologies that have been selected to populate the spaces. When approaching the smart home technologies to place in the different rooms, the team made an effort to not be brand/OS specific so that researchers can assess a variety of technologies and how they interact with one another to allow for more successful living. Below is a list of the smart technologies that are currently in the home.
-Samsung - Family Hub 4-Door French Door Smart Refrigerator
-Samsung - Linear Wash 24" Top Control Built-In Smart Dishwasher
-LG - French InstaView Door-in-Door Smart Refrigerator with Ice Maker
-Amazon Smart Oven, a Certified for Humans device
-GE® Smart Countertop Microwave Oven with Scan-To-Cook Technology
-Atomi Smart WiFi Coffee Maker Compatible with Alexa & Google Home, iOS and Android
-Hamilton Beach Programmable Coffee Maker
Additionally, the team is in the process of selecting and purchasing digital home assistants, smart home sensors, and other smart home technologies that will round out the smart technology suite offered to researchers and research participants in the home.
