Behind “Innovation for a Better Life”: LG Empowers toward a good life


Modern city living has been moving at a more frenetic pace with the list of “things to do” increasing despite hours in the day remaining unchanged.  In order to balance work life and home life, we need more user-centric tools and appliances to help us save time, effort and even money.

LG has continuously worked to innovate home appliances that are more responsive to the demands of modern everyday life.  To do this, various innovations on dependable hardware have become necessary.

LG InstaView Door-in-Door Refrigerator makes life better

The LG InstaView Door-in-Door Refrigerator asks you to knock twice in order to get a visual on the contents of its easy access compartment. So no more opening the refrigerator door over and over again to find out what drinks or food are inside.

Every time the door is opened, cold air escapes and electricity is consumed. This innovation adds up to 41% less cold air loss, so your food and drinks stay fresher for longer, and you save on electricity cost.

Keeping fruits and vegetables fresh is important, and a refrigerator should be able to do this.  The Moist Balance Crisper keeps the moisture level at optimal levels, so you get juicy fruits and crisp vegetables every time.

Ice for hot summer days.  Ice for cold evening drinks.  The SpacePlus Ice System allocates 20% bigger ice storage space than the conventional refrigerator, so you can have more ice for all the different ways you want to keep cool in our tropical weather.

In terms of energy consumption, the Inverter Linear Compressor results in 32% energy savings for a 20-year life span.

SmartThinQ is a convenient way to control the functions of the LG InstaView Door-in-Door Refrigerator, even when you’re outside. You can adjust temperature settings, turn Express Freeze‘on’ and ‘off’, troubleshoot with the Smart Diagnosis. LG’s SmartThinQ is an intuitive innovation that helps you manage your home better.

The LG TWINWash makes life better

The LG TWINWash cuts down your laundry time by allowing you to do two separate loads with different settings at the same time: the main TWINWash is for your regular load and the TWINWash Mini is for delicates and special laundry.

LG’s unique TurboWash 2.0 technology combines a jet spray in the main washer to target a concentrated solution of detergent directly onto the clothes and an atomizing rinse spray that releases tiny water particles through the clothes during high spin cycles for more effective rinsing.

The revolutionary Inverter Direct Drive motor gives you powerful washing that is better than handwash.

SmartThinQ lets your phone function as a smart remote control so you can start your laundry even when you’re already far from home. You can also monitor how your load is coming along and have push alerts sent to your phone when the cycle is complete or an error occurs in the machine.

That means you can spend time running errands, doing other things — or relaxing, for that matter — as your laundry is being washed. Smart Diagnosis also allows you to fix minor problems without having to call the service center.

The Energy Monitoring function takes the guesswork out of doing the laundry feature provides helpful data and LG’s HomeChat™ service allows you to check the status of the washing machine using everyday natural language.

Life nowadays necessitates intuitive, convenient tools to make our lives more manageable. They should complement and not complicate our every day.  Through connectivity, LG’s SmartThinQ technology empowers homeowners towards a good life.

“We have greatly involved ourselves with IoT Technology to deliver our promise of bringing a better life through innovation.”  LG Philippines Home Appliance VP Wooyoung Jeon said.  “The LG InstaView Door-in-Door Refrigerator and LG TWINWash are just some examples of user-centric innovations that are making lives better.  We are on the way to making our homes future-proof.”
