NAIROBI, KENYA- Korean electronics giant LG has announced the launch of energy saving as well as intelligent-automated home appliances that can be managed through LG smart-phones and tabloids.
Comprised of Smart Grid, Smart Diagnosis, Smart Access, Smart Adapt and Smart Manager systems, LG Home Appliances' smart technology will allow its users to manage their refrigerators, washing machines, ovens and robotic vacuum cleaners via a remote network.
According to George Mudhune, the regional marketing manager, the new high-tech home appliances run on LG's smart technology which was earlier showcased at this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, US.
"By the end of the year, when our full range is introduced, consumers will be able to stay in contact with their appliances at any time, enjoying greater convenience and seeing real-life, real-time improvements in energy consumption and time savings," he said.
With the new smart refrigerator, customers will be able to get updates and information that can be accessed via smart phones and tablets as it also offers three powerful smart saving options: late night saving, preferable time saving and the Smart Grid-ready.
"Smart Manager, LG's food management system, informs users what is in their fridge, where it is and when it expires,” he said.
This information will be accessible via smart phones or tablets through Smart Access.
The fridge can also recommend healthy recipes based on what foods are currently available," explained Mudhune.
He added that thanks to LG's Smart Diagnosis function, LG's smart fridge also provides call center staff with all the information they need to identify in case of a problem over the phone.  "Smart Diagnosis does away with the need for costly and time-consuming home call-outs by letting LG's call center know if a problem can be corrected remotely," he added. Expected in Kenya by second half of 2011, the home appliances will be introduced in the regional market before the end of this year.
