What is a connected or smart fireplace?

A connected fireplace is an intelligent or smart fireplace that has the ability to connect via WiFi (or other wireless protocol), communicate and receive instructions. The Internet of Things (IoT) is developing. It is a set of technologies and infrastructures put in place to operate various systems through an Internet connection. The advantage of a connected smart fireplace is that it has its own digital identity. Depending on the needs of the user, it can therefore be controlled remotely (API) by a smartphone App, a voice assistant, a laptop, a smart home system (home automation), etc.

These technological advances are particularly interesting for electric fireplaces and especially for water vapor fireplaces with cold flames. On the other hand, it is necessary to properly assess the potential dangers for open fireplaces with hot flames (untimely starts, safety of controls, etc.)
