LG To Launch Connected Air Appliances At CES

LG Electronics will launch its newest smart air solutions for the home, including an air purifier and air conditioner, at CES 2018.

The LG PuriCare air purifier features the line’s cylindrical design and a fine dust sensor. The air purifier is said to automatically remove fine dust particles. It features LG’s total care filter system and clean booster feature, which is said to better distribute clean air throughout the room while delivering gentle airflow at the base. In addition, the unit monitors air quality, powering on when filtering is required.

The LG DualCool ThinQ Stand Inverter air conditioner features voice recognition and DeepThinQ technology. The voice technology allows homeowners to control their indoor temperature through voice commands. The DeepThinQ AI technology is said to direct more airflow in the direction of individuals in the room using spatial recognition. In addition to recognizing the presence of people in the room, an intelligent human movement sensor adjusts the strength of the airflow depending on the proximity of the person or people to the unit. By analyzing the daily behavioral patterns of the residents, the air conditioner learns what parts of the house require cooling at specific times of the day, maintaining optimal temperatures and saving energy, the company said.

“When it comes to making the home more comfortable and more convenient, LG’s intelligent home appliances are leading the industry,” said David VanderWaal, vp/marketing for LG Electronics USA. “Artificial intelligence is continuing to evolve and LG is committed to using this technology to improve consumers’ quality of life, especially when it comes to air care.”

CES will be held in Las Vegas, January 9 to 12.
