Another anticipation for the next edition of Ces, where Lg Electronics will present the newest addition to its IoT ecosystem, SmartThinQ Hub. This new system serves as a gateway to smart sensors and connected appliances in the home. It can also display reminders from personal calendars and stream music from its built-in speaker. SmartThinQ Hub includes a 3.5-inch color Lcd display and connects to a smartphone app to facilitate two way communication with smart appliances and smart sensors in the home. This new entry expands Lg’s SmartThinQ platform to monitor and control home appliances such as washing machines, refrigerators, ovens, robotic vacuum cleaners, air conditioners and a variety of sensors. The SmartThinQ Hub collects information from smart appliances as well as conventional devices connected to SmartThinQ sensors via Wi-Fi, Zigbee and Bluetooth. Data is displayed in the form of notifications on the Lcd screen or announced through its embedded speaker, acting as the central “hub” of the smart home.
