Now this function appeared in the coffee maker. SkyCoffee Redmond M1505S is the first model with control by smartphone via Wi-Fi.

This model is turned on with the help of special software that is installed on the smartphone. This solution is revolutionary for coffee makers.

The app runs the required program and activates almost all modes of operation. Of course, filling of water, loading coffee into the container and installing the cup are done manually. But all automated processes are effectively controlled by a smartphone.

Any additional comfort has its price. Therefore, the M1505S is positioned as a premium model and has an appropriate cost.

The case is made of black plastic with shiny metallic additives.

The quality of the coffee grinder fully corresponds to the premium level. It also works under the control of Ready for Sky app. But the coffee grinder requires setting the grinding time that is limited to 60 seconds.
