LG To Introduce Connected, Easy-To-Control Smart Appliances At CES 2013

LG's smart refrigerator is also Smart Grid Ready, which means it can automatically adjust its temperature and settings based on fluctuating energy costs, creating a practical smart energy-saving solution***. LG's smart refrigerator also offers Delay Defrost Capability, which can reduce power consumption during specific hours of the day. 

In addition to being able to catch one's favorite TV programs on the refrigerator's crisp LCD display, Smart Share allows users to upload and enjoy photos, music, movies, calendars as well as check the weather report. Instead of just displaying basic recipe lists, instructional videos are available on the display screen to visually show how to prepare recommended dishes.

A Smart Washing Machine with Wi-Fi /NFC Tag Smart Diagnosis™

LG's 2013 smart washing machine incorporates LG's Smart Diagnosis™**, Smart Access, Smart Adapt and Smart Grid Ready*** features.

Using Wi-Fi, NFC tagging and audible diagnosis, LG's Smart Diagnosis™ alerts the user to technical issues, while the Smart Adapt feature makes it possible to download new washing cycle programs -- such as Super Rinse or Baby Sanitize -- via smartphone or directly from the washing machine's LCD panel. Using their smartphone, users can monitor the status of LG's smart washing machine and remotely control it with voice commands. Wash cycles can also be adjusted, started or paused directly through the user's smart TV.

Smart Access allows consumers to control their washer and dryer regardless of location. They no longer need to worry when leaving the house with the washer running as Smart Access makes it possible to monitor the overall status of the washer and dryer via smartphone. Functions and settings can be remotely administered or adjusted and pop-up messages appear on the user's smartphone when a laundry cycle has been completed.

Smart HOM-BOT: So Much More Than a Vacuum

With a smartphone and Wi-Fi connection, users can remotely schedule the HOM-BOT to clean their home at any time, day or night. Advanced features allow the HOM-BOT to be controlled with a smartphone using either on-screen controls or voice commands. The robotic vacuum's camera eye allows for remote home surveillance via a smartphone and even allows owners to speak to family members at home via LG's HOM-BOT. Like its smart appliance counterparts, the HOM-BOT can also be operated from an LG Smart TV.
