Panasonic Improves Home Lifestyles – Unveiling Smart, Energy Saving Technologies
Panasonic Australia has unveiled an extensive line-up of home appliances that deliver greater energy efficiency, and smart features to enhance Australians’ busy lifestyles.
The line-up features over 30 new home appliances, including products such as refrigerators and washing machines – which are being offered in Australia for the first time.
Also introduced today were expansions on existing key categories such as new model microwaves, cordless phones, air conditioners, bread makers and personal care products – all with innovative ‘smart’ features to help improve the home environment and reduce time spent on daily tasks.
Richard Tassone, General Manager – Marketing, Consumer Electronics Group, Panasonic Australia, said the new product lineup aimed to help Australians save time and money in the home.
“We are very excited to be offering Australians this fantastic line-up that not only delivers Panasonic’s world-renowned reliability, but also features energy saving functionalities to support environmentally-friendly families who want the latest technologies, at an affordable price,” he added.
The new ECONAVI products being unveiled today – washing machines, refrigerators and air conditioners – use sensors to monitor the user’s living environment and adjust energy usage accordingly.
For example, the Panasonic refrigerator being previewed at the launch records daily usage patterns, such as how frequently and when the door is opened, allowing it to better control cooling and therefore save on energy costs.
ECONAVI products also enable ease of operation, are designed for reduced CO2 emissions during their lifecycle, and use fewer materials during product manufacturing.
