LG Air Conditioning Technologies Expands Smart Home Connectivity

CHICAGO, Ill. – With an extensive range of smart devices available, LG is offering consumers more ways to control their home and enjoy the benefits of a connected home experience, building on the cutting-edge connectivity and convenience and expanding the Google Assistant compatibility and functionality for LG smart appliances first launched in January at CES 2018.

Voice-enabled control with Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa
LG smart appliance owners can now have the Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa help them around the house with their connected LG appliances. For example, they can use simple voice commands from anywhere within range of the Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa (or on their smartphone) to adjust thermostat settings on their LG air conditioner, check the time remaining during wash cycles on their washing machine, ask their LG refrigerator to make more ice, turn off their range after cooking and even check the air quality level in their home using their LG air purifier.

Simple setup with LG SmartThinQ
Setup is simple and convenient with the free LG SmartThinQ app, available for Android and iOS. With just one app, users can control the entire lineup of LG smart appliances in their home. Whether it’s turning on your air conditioner, preheating the oven on the way home from work or checking the remaining laundry time while at the gym, LG SmartThinQ brings consumers a new level of convenience.

LG makes it easy for consumers to connect and interact with its appliances because Wi-Fi is built into virtually all of its 2018 appliances. Committed to its “Open Partnership-Open Platform-Open Connectivity” strategy, LG is building a smart ecosystem with an expansive connected appliance lineup that includes products for the kitchen, laundry room and throughout the home with air conditioners, vacuums and more. In addition to Google and Amazon, LG’s Open Partnerships will include others to meet the needs and preferences of smart home adopters.
