SMART LIVING: Relay live videos from your home to your smartphone with HOM-BOT
With a burgeoning middle class living on the fast lane and working with a razor-thin schedule, the demand for customer-centric home appliances is on the rise.
As we spend more and more time away from home, there is need for manufacturers of home appliances to place a lot emphasis on developing smart, consumer-centric solutions that apply the latest innovations to solve real-world problems.
As consumers become increasingly interested in establishing appliance’s ability to minimize on effort and save time before purchase, competition by manufacturers to increase their range of consumer focused in the home appliances category to fulfill this growing need has been on the rise.
To this end, LG has developed a number of tailored solutions to bring convenience to the lives of its customers. The company is also keen on ensuring food safety when it comes to Kitchen appliances. For instance, the LG microwave uses linear power control between 200 to 1200 watts to evenly cook or defrost food all through.
The microwave also boasts several features which lock in nutrients, helping users prepare healthier dishes. It recently also rolled out refrigerators that let users know when certain foods are running low
The company’s efficient design of Door-in-Door has revolutionized refrigerator design, giving users quick access to frequently sought food items, while simultaneously reducing cold air loss.
LG took the initial Door-in-Door concept one step further by adding another Door-in-Door compartment to double the convenience. Door-in-Door technology reduces the amount of cold air loss by up to 47 percent and with the addition of a second independent Door-in-Door compartment, cold air loss is further reduced.
But the design innovation isn’t just on the outside. Various compartments in the Dual Door-in-Door™ refrigerator make organization very easy. The Family Space compartment can be accessed from the outside at the push of a button and is perfect for frequently accessed items such as snacks and drinks.
The Cooking Space on the left can be opened with an Easy-Open Handle that is hidden by the bottom of the door trim and holds essential cooking ingredients such as chopped vegetables, condiments and sauces.
It also recently introduced ‘LG Smart Home’, which is built around the idea of unifying multiple smart appliances into a single, cohesive system in order to increase convenience and simplicity.
Coupled with its interactive new feature HomeChat, which employs Natural Language Processing (NLP) and LINE, the popular mobile messenger app with over 300 million users, homeowners can communicate, control, monitor and share content with LG’s latest smart appliances.
When it comes to washing machines, LG’s smart washing machine is equipped with several smart technologies that simplify the task of doing laundry. Guided Laundry can recommend and automatically apply the optimal settings for any type of laundering scenario.
For example, for orange juice spills, simply texting “remove juice stains” on HomeChat™ will initiate One Touch Washing to prescribe the appropriate course of action.
Moreover, with time constraints preventing many from vacuuming as often as experts recommend, LG has consistently led the way in developing robotic vacuum technology. Able to run complex cleaning routines completely independent of user supervision, the HOM-BOT Turbo+ goes a long way toward improving both cleanliness and overall respiratory health.
To enhance safety and security, HOM-BOT can also act as a home monitor, employing its cameras to relay live videos to the user’s smartphone.
These technologies combine to make the vacuum cleaner an integral part of a clean, healthy and secure home.
