Earth Hour can act as an intermediary for those who have long planned to return to eco-life, to be closer to nature. Smart home technologies will also make this sustainable journey much easier, helping to save electricity and water consumption and reduce the energy footprint of homes.
Going beyond energy saving, LG’s smart home platform LG ThinQ introduces a variety of new eco-friendly features to put users on a greener path. LG’s smart technologies help achieve a net zero lifestyle:
Convenience in Energy Saving
Saving energy at home becomes much easier thanks to the smart features of the LG ThinQ app that allow users to effortlessly optimize the energy efficiency of their home appliances. The application helps to save energy even by taking into account the usage habits. For example, it can set the refrigerator’s power consumption to its lowest level at night when the refrigerator door is less likely to open and close.
Remote monitoring and control features also help reduce unnecessary electricity use. For example, the user locked the front door and left for a vacation, but forgot to turn off one of the devices. No problem if there is LG ThinQ app. Users can check the status of all their devices through the application, then they can remotely turn off any device wherever they are.
Protecting the World in the Flow of Daily Life
Besides reducing energy use at home, what else can be done for the environment in everyday life? The LG ThinQ app offers well thought-out solutions for this, with features like food expiration date warning. Notifying users that fresh food stored in the refrigerator is about to expire, these helpful alerts significantly reduce the likelihood of food going to waste – making an important contribution to controlling household grocery spending as well as sustainable living. All that is required to use this feature is to record the expiry date of each food item while putting it in the refrigerator. After this process, if a material with a near expiration date has not been used yet, the application sends a notification to the user’s smartphone.
Moving from the kitchen to the laundry rooms, the LG ThinQ app also offers a handy cycle recommendation that ensures clean clothes without wasting water or detergent. After the LG washing machine determines the type of fabric and the weight of the load, the ThinQ app recommends the most suitable cycle for both the perfect wash and the environment.
Extending the Life of Home Appliances
Keeping devices in good working order not only prolongs their useful life, but also saves money in the long run. On top of that, it also helps prevent excessive power consumption during operation. Also, taking good care of appliances means less burden on the world’s recycling facilities; because the longer the life of the devices, the longer it takes to go to waste. Designed to support users in taking better care of their LG home appliances, the Smart Diagnostics feature of the ThinQ app can do a quick check to make sure everything is working as intended. In addition to preventive maintenance, the application also serves as a reminder when it’s time to change a product’s filters.
Taking things one step further, LG recently announced the launch of Upgradeable Devices. These devices can be upgraded over time to provide new features and functionality. Delivering new and ever-evolving user experiences without the need to purchase a newer model, LG’s Upgradeable Device paradigm has the potential to further extend the life of the company’s electronics and help alleviate the global e-waste problem.
LG users can enjoy a more comfortable and more sustainable life than ever before with the latest smart home technologies.
