Amid all the hype around the launch of its latest video and computing launches, LG plans to have some more practical product debuts happen at CES 2018 in January. Among them is a series of new smart air solutions for the home—the LG PuriCare air purifier and the LG DUALCOOL ThinQ Stand Inverter air conditioner. The products will feature a number of improvements including fine dust sensors and voice recognition technology.
LG PuriCare Air Purifier
The PuriCare air purifier is described by LG as a “state-of-the-art air monitoring sensor” that can detect and remove fine dust particles from the air to provide a “comfortable and clean” environment. The PuriCare continues to monitor air quality while in standby mode and will power on when filtering is required.
The design of the product, which includes a Clean Booster feature, means the LG PuriCare is able to “better distribute clean air” across a room while producing a gentle airflow at the base, LG said, which makes this an ideal product for families with young children and pets.
LG DUALCOOL ThinQ
The DUALCOOL ThinQ air conditioner will come equipped with voice technology that allows homeowners to control their indoor temperature with a simple command. LG said it also integrated the Dual Inverter Compressor to minimize the speed of the compressor, which provides higher energy efficiency and lower noise levels.
The product also ships with LG’s DeepThinQ AI technology, which uses spatial recognition to detect where people in the room are positions and direct more airflow in that direction. Additionally, the technology allows the unit to adjust the strength of the airflow depending on how close the person is to the unit. And, by analyzing daily behavioral patterns of the residents, the DUALCOOL ThinQ air conditioner will be able to learn which parts of the home require more cooling at specific times of the day, “maintaining optimal temperatures and saving energy,” LG said.
“When it comes to making the home more comfortable and more convenient, LG’s intelligent home appliances are leading the industry,” David VanderWaal, vice president of marketing for LG Electronics USA, said in a statement. “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.”
LG will have both of these and many other products on display at its booth at CES (#11100) in the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center from January 9-12.
