But First Coffee – we’ve all seen this little phrase on everything from coffee mugs to Instagram – now it’s reality, without the need to even flick a switch your perfectly brewed coffee can be ready for you every single morning. Smarter, one of the fastest growing UK connected home companies, launches its long-awaited Smarter Coffee - 2nd Generation into UK retail stores including Amazon, Currys, Lakeland, Bentalls and Selfridges this month and is set to get the UK up and ready to go with minimal effort.
The WiFi connected Smarter Coffee really is Smarter: it learns and remembers when you have your morning cup of coffee; can be programmed to use specific timers set by the user; uses geo-caching to know when you’re back from your run; or can simply be switched on via your phone, to make an extra pot as you lie in over a weekend.
Smarter Coffee takes any work out of making the perfect cup of coffee by grinding the beans and getting your personalised pot ready for you whenever you need that pick me up or a relaxing coffee break.
Using the Smarter app, coffee lovers can fresh grind and brew coffee from anywhere, as well as adjusting brew strength, temperature and quantity.
For days when even opening an app is too much work, or perhaps the phone is charging downstairs, a voice command to Amazon’s Alexa or Google Home can also start Smarter Coffee brewing. Other smart home devices can also be connected to Smarter products.
By creating applets using automation service IFTTT (If This Then That) users can integrate Smarter Coffee with a variety of other smart home devices for example Philips Hue Lights, so kitchen lights turn on when coffee starts brewing.
“We are excited to have our 2nd Generation of Smarter Coffee going into stores this month. All the indicators show that consumers are ready to put technology to work to make their daily lives simpler and more convenient via connected appliances,” said Smarter CEO and founder Christian Lane. “Like our latest iKettle (3rd Gen) that was launched in the middle of this year, Smarter Coffee is delivering unprecedented level of connection to our customers, now linking to the rest of their smart home.”
