Liebherr creates innovative IoT solutions that are extendable and plug-and-play. Liebherr has developed the fleet management platform LiDAT for their construction machines. Due to customer demand, these platforms are often extended to include competitors’ products but with limited data coverage and functionality. For the household appliance industry, Liebherr has a novel refrigeration solution: a plug-and-play device that turns almost any of the company's fridges into a smart fridge.
What's especially brilliant about the SmartDevice is not so much its capabilities, but Liebherr's overall approach to smart home technology. Unlike smart home setups that force users to buy pricey hardware that can't be upgraded and may not even be necessary, SmartDevice gives consumers the option of choosing nearly any Liebherr fridge and adding connectivity only if and when they feel comfortable doing so.
