WHAT IS CLAIMED IS:

1. An appliance comprising:

a smart controller configured to control operations of the appliance;

one or more components each configured to perform an operation of the appliance in response to the smart controller;

an input/output (10) circuit coupled to the smart controller via a local data bus, the 10 circuit configured to receive commands from the smart controller and to control of one or more components in response thereto; and

a plurality of sensors coupled to the 10 circuit, at least one of the sensors comprising a current sensor configured to monitor load current in the appliance associated with operation of the one or more components for determining a fault condition thereof.

2. The appliance of claim 1, wherein the smart controller is configured to execute an expert system for determining the fault condition of the one or more components based on the monitored load current.

3. The appliance of claim 1, further comprising a relay circuit coupled to the 10 circuit, the relay circuit associated with the one or more components of the appliance and configured to switch on and off the one or more components responsive to the commands from the smart controller.

4. The appliance of claim 1, wherein the smart controller is coupled to a cloud service via a virtual data bus.

5. The appliance of claim 4, wherein sensed current data representative of the monitored load current is aggregated and stored remotely from the appliance at the cloud service.

6. The appliance of claim 1, further comprising a touchscreen controller coupled to the 10 circuit and the smart controller via the local data bus, the touchscreen controller configured for interaction with a user of the appliance.

7. The appliance of claim 1, further comprising a power supply coupled to the 10 circuit for supplying power thereto.

8. The appliance of claim 1, wherein the one or more components are one or more of the following: a convection fan motor, a vent fan, and a water valve.

9. The appliance of claim 1, wherein the sensors are selected from the group consisting of: a cavity temperature sensor, an ambient temperature sensor, an air inlet temperature sensor, a voltage detection sensor, and the current sensor.

10. An appliance comprising:

a smart controller configured to control operations of the appliance;

one or more components each configured to perform an operation of the appliance in response to the smart controller;

an input/output (10) circuit coupled to the smart controller via a local data bus, the 10 circuit configured to receive commands from the smart controller and to control of one or more components in response thereto; and

a plurality of sensors coupled to the 10 circuit, at least one of the sensors comprising a voltage detection sensor configured to monitor a mains supply voltage to the appliance for determining a fault condition thereof.

11. The appliance of claim 10, wherein the plurality of sensors comprises a current sensor configured to monitor load current in the appliance associated with operation of the one or more components for determining the fault condition thereof.

12. The appliance of claim 10, wherein the smart controller is configured to execute an expert system for determining the fault condition of the one or more components based on the monitored mains supply voltage.

13. The appliance of claim 10, further comprising a relay circuit coupled to the 10 circuit, the relay circuit associated with the one or more components of the appliance and configured to switch on and off the one or more components responsive to the commands from the smart controller.

14. The appliance of claim 10, wherein the smart controller is coupled to a cloud service via a virtual data bus.

15. The appliance of claim 14, wherein data acquired by the plurality of sensors is aggregated and stored remotely from the appliance at the cloud service.

16. The appliance of claim 10, further comprising a touchscreen controller coupled to the 10 circuit and the smart controller via the local data bus, the touchscreen controller configured for interaction with a user of the appliance.

17. The appliance of claim 1, further comprising a power supply coupled to the 10 circuit for supplying power thereto.

18. The appliance of claim 10, wherein the one or more components are one or more of the following: a convection fan motor, a vent fan, and a water valve.

19. The appliance of claim 10, wherein the sensors are selected from the group consisting of: a cavity temperature sensor, an ambient temperature sensor, an air inlet temperature sensor, a current sensor, and the voltage detection sensor.
