In a partnership coming to light at IFA 2019, LG Electronics and LUMI United Technology have developed a plan to develop a more expansive IoT ecosystem for the home. The partnership will leverage LG’s industry-leading smart appliances and LUMI’s Aqara sensor technology to detect changes in indoor environments like humidity level, temperature, and movement of doors. LUMI’s advanced Aqara sensor technology will save energy and offer a more safe and convenient solution for homeowners.
Users can create customized settings for their LG electronics using the Aqara sensor, like programming a standard temperature for their home. The sensor will detect the temperature and humidity status of the area, and adjust the air conditioning or open the windows accordingly. Of course, LG will notify users that a window has been opened to prioritize their safety.
LG and LUMI’s concept for the “connected home of the future” will be on display at IFA 2019 from Sept. 6-11 in Hall 18. LG will use one of its dehumidifiers to demonstrate how the LUMI technology can be used to maintain an optimal temperature setting for clothes. Also on display will be LG’s WK7 intelligent speaker connected to an Aqara LED Light Bulb. Users can say the words “cinema mode” to create the appropriate atmosphere for their home theater.
“We are very excited to partner with LUMI and to share our latest smart home living solutions with visitors to IFA 2019,” said Ryu Hye-jung, executive director of LG Home Appliance & Air Solution Company’s Smart Home Business. “Through this strategic partnership LG will evolve the connected home ecosystem in ways that will matter to consumers, expanding our smart home solutions to include smart buildings as well as smart cities.”
