the proliferation of IoT devices on the market, many consumers are fast
learning the benefits of smart home technology. For those embracing the latest
innovations with open arms, such technologies are often coupled with wearable
and mobile devices for seamless integration.
its unveiling at CES in 2011, LG’s ThinQ platform has been integrated into a
range of household products, from washing machines and air conditioners, to
refrigerators and televisions – helping homeowners around the world interact
with their devices in new ways.
its promise of bringing new intelligence to connected living, LG ThinQ enables
devices to be operated from the convenience of a free-to-download smartphone
application, unlocking a world of potential for remote operation and added
integrated with LG ThinQ are designed to provide utmost convenience. The
intuitive application brings a smart home hub into the palm of the user’s hand
and can be used to set the washing machine in motion prior to an important
event, program the air conditioner to start 5 minutes before returning from
work, inform when produce in the refrigerator is expiring and set the air
purifier in motion after preparing dinner.
LG introduced its ThinQ AI platform with 2nd
Generation α9 and A7 Processors into a range of its OLED and NanoCell TVs. As
the world’s first Arabic supported AI televisions, the new devices make use of
Natural Language Processing (NLP) to enable voice-activated control via the
Magic Remote. LG’s universal Magic Remote features auto device detection for a
number of devices and can be partnered with the TV’s Home Dashboard to access
and control connected smart devices with more convenience than ever before.
LG ThinQ AI also enables each TV to listen, think,
answer and evolve in accordance with the user’s requests and preferences.
Taking the hassle out of adjusting settings, LG’s ThinQ AI platform deploys a
deep learning algorithm to produce better picture and sound quality
automatically, whilst also recognizing lighting conditions and tweaking
brightness to enhance visibility.
ThinQ is designed to work in sync with each user in the household, who may use
the same devices in different ways. LG ThinQ studies what users like and how
they behave, analyzing product preferences and usage patterns to provide truly
personalized experiences for each person in the house.
refrigerators can be programed to align with the home’s daily rhythm –
observing when a user most frequently opens their refrigerator, whether after
school or at dinner time. ThinQ technology recognizes these peak periods, to
cool ahead of time and keep food in optimal condition. It can also increase the
speed of ice production, ensuring that as families return from the office or
school pick-up, they can immediately cool down. For laundry, LG ThinQ analyzes
the softness of fabrics to provide specialized care and optimal wash quality –
reducing clothing damage by up to 18%.
the LG ThinQ app, users can initiate the Express Freeze function, increasing
the ice-making and freezing capabilities of their refrigerator. Express Freeze,
once activated will run the freezer at its coldest temperature possible for a
24 hour period. The feature can also be stopped at any time via the simple
touch of a button.
ThinQ harnesses the power of AI and data analytics to provide customer care
services based on usage habits and the status of each device. Once installed
and registered via the LG ThinQ app, a diagnostic check automatically runs to
ensure the appliance is running properly. For added peace-of-mind, the LG ThinQ
app also provides regular updates on recommendations for proper usage methods,
which can also be sent as email alerts.
ThinQ platform also provides recommendations on how to troubleshoot and manage
each appliance with ease. It can flag if the washing machine tub requires
thorough cleaning, or if a homeowner is using too much detergent. For the
refrigerator, users can receive updates on when to replace their water filter,
being driven directly to the website to purchase a compatible model.
more homeowners look towards managing their consumption habits, smart home
appliances can now also be programed to operate with greater efficiency. An LG
refrigerator can monitor usage patterns and automatically run in save mode
during hours less frequently used for optimal energy consumption. When
travelling for long periods of time, users can also enable Vacation Mode via
the LG ThinQ app, further increasing operational efficiency.
DUALCOOL air conditioners are also designed for compatibility with the LG ThinQ
app, enabling remote adjustment of temperature. In comparison with conventional
ACs, LG DUALCOOL units benefit from the company’s Dual Inverter Compressor,
which adjusts compressor speed to maintain desired temperature levels. The
result is a residential AC unit which not only provides regulated temperatures,
but also consumes less energy than conventional models, saving energy by up to
