Seamless Control in Your Home Environment

At Fisher & Paykel we’re creating connected appliances that are even more beautiful to use.

Our evolving suite of kitchen and laundry appliances are designed to help manage your daily routine seamlessly, with fully remote access to how they chill, cook and clean. It’s just the beginning of a home where everything works together in sync, with you effortlessly in control.


Introducing the SmartHQ™ App

Now you’re in control, wherever and whenever. Add your Wi-Fi enabled Fisher & Paykel appliances to the app, then check in or manage your cooking and laundry appliances, refrigerator or dishwasher at any time.

Status Updates

Get visibility of the status of your connected appliances. Review how long until the wash is finished, ensure your wine cabinet is keeping your vintage at the perfect temperature, or check that you remembered to turn the oven off before you left home.

Control From Everywhere

With remote control, you can be anywhere when you turn the oven on to preheat, start the dishwasher or put the laundry on so it's ready when you arrive home.


Activate notifications for your connected appliances so you know when the dryer’s finished with your clean sheets, the oven has come to temperature, or when it’s time to replace the water filter in your refrigerator – then order a replacement directly through the app.
