The Internet of Things (IoT) has gone beyond being a buzzword and established a new world order wherein technology works to make people’s lives easier and more manageable.
Suddenly, all the contraptions that we saw in the animated series “The Jetsons” do not seem that far from reality.
When you think of IoT, you may think of wearables that track how much exercise and sleep you get or watches that allow you to send text messages. Then, of course, there are the many, many things you can now take control with the use of your smartphone.
LG’s SmartThinQ is user-centric. It helps consumers better manage their lives through intuitive technology that fills the need for more convenient and more efficient home care.
SmartThinQ allows you to control the temperature settings of your LG InstaView Door-in-Door Refrigerator even when you’re not at home. That means you can decrease energy usage when you don’t have too many items in there and you can even turn on the Express Freeze function so that you have enough ice cubes when you get home for entertaining guests.
Smart Diagnosis helps troubleshoot simple problems with your refrigerator, even suggesting ways you can conserve energy based on your usage history.
On the LG TWINWash, 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 push alerts are sent to your phone when the cycle is complete or an error occurs in the machine.
Smart Diagnosis also allows you to fix minor problems without having to call the service center. Taking the guesswork out of doing the laundry, the Energy Monitoring feature provides helpful data and LG’s HomeChat™ service allows you to check the status of the washing machine using everyday natural language.
More Innovative Ways on the LG InstaView Door-in-Door Refrigerator
The LG InstaView Door-in-Door Refrigerator only requires you to knock twice and the sleek mirrored glass panel will illuminate, revealing the contents of the easy access compartment.
That means you don’t have to keep opening the refrigerator door and peeking inside — that equates to energy savings and up to 41% less cold air loss, keeping your food and drinks fresher for a longer period of time.
Meanwhile, the Moist Balance Crisper keeps the moisture level for your fresh produce at the optimal level. That means crunchier vegetables and fruits. It also features the SpacePlus Ice System with an ice storage space that is 20% bigger than the conventional. The Inverter Linear Compressor gives you 32% energy savings.
More Innovative Ways on theLG TWINWash
The LG TWINWash cuts down time you spend doing the laundry because you can do two separate loads at the same time: the bigger TWINWash for your regular load and the TWINWash Mini for delicates.
It also features LG’s unique TurboWash 2.0 technology: a nozzle inside the drum of the main washer sprays a concentrated solution of detergent directly onto the clothes and another high-pressure nozzle sprays tiny water particles through the clothes during high spin cycles for more effective rinsing.
Meanwhile, the revolutionary Inverter Direct Drive motor is attached directly to the drum. This improves wash efficiency and enhances the machine’s durability.
“We have greatly involved ourselves in the smart ecosystem with IoT Technology to deliver our promise of bringing a better life through innovation.” LG Philippines Home Appliance VP Wooyoung Jeon said. “Through the SmartThinQ technology, LG has increased connectivity to help you take control of important, everyday tasks on your washing machine and refrigerator remotely–not only in terms of easy functions but also troubleshooting–all with a few taps on your smartphones”.
