As smart home technology continues to sweep the nation, it becomes more and more difficult to impress the neighbors with gadgets. One area that has been wildly overlooked in the tech realm is an item used mindlessly each day – the refrigerator. Few manufacturers even make smart refrigerators, making it rare to find a listing that includes this luxury.
A property by Mallard Homes is changing that in Lawrence. At 4008 Sweetclover, a French-door refrigerator from GE’s Café Modern Glass collection is a showstopping feature in an already impressive house. Mallard Homes obtained the smart device in September 2019 – two months before the unit was introduced to the public.
The hands-free autofill dispenser is perfect for a person on the go, as it allows for other tasks to be performed while a container is being filled with filtered water. Sensors dispense the perfect amount of chilled water every time.
An LED backlit wall illuminates food so that items are easy to find— perfect for late night snacking. Customizable temperature settings allow for drawers to be catered to different food types. The feature includes a convertible drawer with Soft Freeze, allowing for temperatures as low as 23 degrees or as high as 42 degrees. Items are kept organized with sliding glass dividers.
Just because the fridge is practical, doesn’t mean it’s lacking in style. With a platinum glass finish and angular, modern lines, 4008 Sweetclover maintains a contemporary feel in the eat-in kitchen.
The home also includes other Cafe Modern Glass appliances, which are wi-fi connected and easy to control by phone or voice command. With these capabilities, a homeowner can receive notifications when a filter needs changing, check refrigerator temperatures, turn off devices, and use Amazon Dash Replenishment to automatically order supplies.
