CES 2023: LG Electronics Displays Smart Lifestyle Solutions

LG Electronics (LG), a board member of the Home Connectivity Alliance (HCA), showcased a seamless smart home experience at CES 2023. Along with other HCA member companies. LG demonstrated the interoperability enabled under the new HCA Specification 1.0, whereby smart home solutions from different brands work together seamlessly to deliver true connected convenience in the home.

LG exhibited their latest smart home appliances – including the MoodUP™ refrigerator, WashTower™ laundry solution, ARTCOOL Gallery air conditioner and Puri with Care™ AeroTower™ – together with those from other alliance members.  Their concept of “Any App to any device” presents users with the ability to manage each brand’s products via each brand’s smart control App, such as LG’s intuitive ThinQ App. This new level of interoperability is currently supported by HCA member companies including LG.

Utilizing existing industry standards to define Cloud-to-Cloud (C2C) interoperability guidelines, the new HCA Specification 1.0 has been established to ensure that home appliances, TVs and HVAC systems can interoperate seamlessly with one another, irrespective of brand. In addition, to newly-launched models consumers can continue using the smart home appliances and HVAC solutions, customers have already owned at home and are covered by HCA Specification 1.0, without having to install any major firmware updates.

Furthermore, HCA Specification 1.0 will help member companies to make the smart home more sustainable in the future, leveraging data collected from across alliance members’ appliances to gain insight into usage and improve energy management.

Adding his insights on the same, Lyu Jae-cheol, President of the LG Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solution Company said, “As a member of HCA, LG is contributing to the realization of a safe, secure, and interoperable connected home ecosystem. Through collaboration and open innovation, we will continue to provide consumers with solutions for a smarter, more convenient way of living.”
