“The refrigerator’s connectivity, enabling remote management of its features, helps enhance the refrigerator’s efficiency,” notes Jenn-Air marketing director Brian Maynard. “In addition to these technological advances, we’ve also incorporated the elegant design details Jenn-Air is known for, including our modern, obsidian black refrigerator interior.”
Blending in seamlessly with the rest of your smart home thanks to its companion iOS or Android app, the refrigerator’s temperature can be remotely controlled via your smartphone.
