Lg Smart Home solutions at IFA 2015


LG+SmartThinQLg is ready to show its new smart technologies for home appliances at the next edition of IFA, that is going to open the doors at Messe Berlin from September 4-9. All the company’s news will be displayed at Lg’s booth in Hall 18. Smart Home and Internet of Thing are the most important sectors on which Lg Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solution Company is focusing with the purpose of enhancing the lives of consumers. Among the most interesting news, the company will show its SmartThinQ Sensor, a device that can be attached to many traditional home appliances to make them “smart-aware”. But IFA is also the occasion to unveil the Smart Lightwave Oven and Smart Air Conditioner that are compatible with AllJoyn, an open platform for the Internet of Things (IoT) developed by the Allseen Alliance.
The SmartThinQ Sensor is a circular device that can be attached to existing home appliances such as washing machines or refrigerators, to sense feedback such as vibration and temperature and communicate those readings to the SmartThinQ app on users’ smartphones. And connecting the SmartThingQ Sensor to an air conditioner or other appliances will allow users to control the appliances remotely through the SmartThinQ app.
The AllJoyn compatible Smart Lightwave Oven from Lg, instead, allows users to download, update and share recipes with friends and relatives via their mobile devices. The Smart Lightwave Oven is Wi-Fi enabled, allowing homeowners to use their smartphones to set the cooking mode, temperature and cooking time for a given dish.
Finally, Lg’s Smart Air Conditioner not only informs owners when to replace the air filter, it can also be controlled remotely from a smartphone, putting an end to entering a hot, stuffy home on a hot day.
