As the originators of the iKettle, the world’s first kettle to be controlled via a smartphone, Smarter have revolutionized the way that we can now consume two of our most favourite beverages, tea and coffee.
Smarter create products that beautifully reflects our affiliation with ‘the internet of things’, where we’re now being presented with more internet-connected solutions for our favourite household appliances. Smarter have managed to coincide the influx of modern, innovative technology with traditional domestic appliances so that they are operable from pretty much everywhere.
This is where we came in. We worked side-by-side with the team at Smarter in assisting with the development of their iOS and Android apps which would accompany their iKettle 2.0 and Smarter Coffee machines. Users are able to remotely boil water, select and save a default temperature between 20 and 100 degrees, view how much water is in the machine and adjust the coffee strength. The app will also notify users through a push notification when the beverage is ready for consumption.
