SMART MIRROR

Google, Google on the wall: What am I wearing tonight?

Smart mirrors are conquering the kitchen, bedroom and cloakroom. But what are the smart sights made of smoothly polished metal capable of and what do you have to look out for when buying a smart mirror? Four models for bedrooms, kitchens, bathrooms and gyms.

It all started with smart phones. Then came the smart speakers. Smart doorbells followed, and manufacturers now subjectively label everything that has a digital display and can connect to the home network as smart. This even includes mirrors marked with metal Coated and smooth-sanded surfaces that most people glance at in the morning just to wish they hadn't gotten out of bed after all. Luckily, smart mirrors are not (yet) smart enough to make a snappy comment towards the supposed twin who is examining himself in them. In return, they boast functions that are familiar to most users of tablets or smart speakers.

And so some of the mirrors look more like an oversized tablet. Your scope of services includes, among other things, the playback of music and videos, for example from Spotify, Netflix or YouTube or you can use them to make video calls to friends – thanks to a selfie camera. Some devices even include fitness offers that are intended to replace going to the gym - including advice from a personal trainer. In times of free YouTube workouts with Pamela Reif & Co. of course questionable.

Because a mirror is not just a mirror, but also a design element, there are various areas of application for which a smart representative of its kind is suitable. "HeyGoogle. What fashion is trending in autumn?" Such (and other) questions are answered by a smart mirror like the multimedia cloakroom mirror MELI also. This is made possible by the integrated voice control. Does that really help when choosing the right outfit? Oh well.

Because the Android 8 operating system does its job on the mirror, install app such as Netlix, Spotify or the ARD media library on it. Ideal if you want to get the first info of the day during your morning routine or if you don't want to miss a second of your favorite series. Installation is either via voice control or alternatively via touch input on the display. Nice: With other suitable smart devices such as scales or cameras, you always have data about your body or your smart home in view in the mirror.

A smart mirror in the kitchen is the perfect companion for a wonderful evening of cooking. Sounds absurd at first, but the Kitchen Smart MONA 60  can be wonderfully integrated into the new kitchen, for example by using it as a door of a kitchen cabinet. Android 8 also works on it, which is why the kitchen mirror can be easily integrated into the home WiFi network. Again you download your desired apps from the Google Play Store and again this works via voice command or touch input. If you don't want to think about what you want for lunch or dinner, just ask Google for delicious recipe ideas that can be prepared in less than ten minutes. Soccer fans, on the other hand, appreciate apps like DAZN and watch their favorite club in the Champions League or Bundesliga while they cook, all in full HD resolution. According to the manufacturer, the smart mirror is also protected against steam and splash water and is certified with the IP 65 protection standard.
