is showcasing the latest innovations in smart home technology at the ongoing Gitex Technology Week 2020 expo in partnership with UAE's leading telecom services operator Etisalat
aimed at offering users a seamless experience.
At the LG ThinQ Smart Home within Etisalat’s booth, attendees are witnessing firsthand how a seamless, connected smart home can be achieved – harnessing the power of Etisalat’s Wi-Fi technology.
Forming a central role in this smart home symphony is the LG ThinQ smartphone appli-cation, which is connected to all home appliances, electronics and air solutions for a ho-listic overview of what truly makes a home ‘smart’.
Within its continuous R&D efforts, LG said it has identified an integral need to create products which deliver meaningful intelligence.
Consumer research has shown that key purchas-ing influences typically include a desire to save – on energy consumption and cost, as well as demand for greater convenience, it stated.
Common concerns around smart home technol-ogy include fear of investment due to products potentially becoming obsolete, as well as concerns around maintenance.
Addressing these aspects head-on, LG’s smart home technology consists of an ever-growing portfolio of products, with seamless connectivity via multiple access points (in-cluding voice, mobile and in-device integration), as well as promoting an open platform and ongoing collaborations with fellow industry leaders to strengthen its offerings.
LG ThinQ also evolves in accordance with user needs and provides recommendations for a more personalized experience.
To prolong the lifespan of products and ensure users are getting the best out of their technology, LG’s Proactive Customer Care solution works alongside the LG ThinQ app, sending users installation reports, usage details and alerts to keep smart homes running smoothly, said the statement from LG.
On showcase at Gitex is LG’s sleek 77-inch GX OLED TV, with a built-in ?9 Gen3 AI Processor that leverages deep learning algorithms to recognize content type and optimize both audio and picture quality.
The television’s interface also provides a Home Dash-board through which users can operate their smart home appliances using just their voice. For audio enthusiasts, the LG SN11R sound bar demonstrates AI Room Calibration –harnessing spatial awareness technology to measure the room’s unique characteristics and balance audio to suit the environment.
As part of the company’s home appliance offering, LG ThinQ technology is showing how users can easily select temperature settings for the InstaView Door-in-Door refrig-erator and check the status of the QuadWash dishwasher’s cycle remotely.
Taking the chore out of laundry, LG is also displaying its TWINWash washing machine with AI Direct Drive technology, detecting clothing weight, fabric softness and optimal washing motions to keep items in their best condition.
As the importance of maintaining a comfortable and clean environment remains a focus for all, visitors are also experiencing the technology behind LG’s DUALCOOL air con-ditioner and PuriCare double tower air purifier, which, when operated remotely via the LG ThinQ app, also provide maintenance tips, alongside access to LG-certified parts and accessories for added convenience.
Hongju Jeon, President, LG Electronics Gulf, said: "The philosophy behind LG ThinQ enables us to continue creating products and services which seek to not only meet but exceed expectations when it comes to creating a smart home."
"Of course, integral to any smart home experience is a robust network, which is why we are proud to be partnering with the region’s leading service providers – Etisalat, to show visitors all the difference seamless connectivity makes in delivering on the promise of an intelligent lifestyle," he added.
