LG Unveils First Voice-Activated AC Range
LG Electronics Australia will introduce its first voice-enabled air conditioning range, which is compatible with Google Assistant and is set to launch just ahead of the Oz summer season.
The company’s 2019 Split System AC range, known as the WS Series, will enable households to perform a range of operational tasks with their voice using the Google Assistant app or a compatible smart speaker.
LG WS split system air conditioners are available from LG Specialised Dealers across Australia.
Users also have the ability to check the status of operations through the LG Smart ThinQ mobile app to monitor power consumption, control the temperature, filter information and diagnose problems.
“The new LG WS Series is a great solution to keeping cool as Australians approach the warmer months,” said Angus Jones, general manager of Marketing, LG Australia.
“Connectivity is king and at LG, we are continuing to innovate solutions that offer convenience to our customers.”
“The ability to control your air conditioner through a simple voice command and monitor consumption from your smartphone offers a sense of convenience you need to experience to believe.”
“We are excited to bring this technology to consumers through our new air conditioning range.”
The new range comes with the Active Energy Control function, which allows users to cap the energy consumption level.
The four levels of power consumption allow users to set the level to best suit their needs, so, if there are only one or two people in the room, users would set 40% energy usage to reduce consumption.
Quiet mode ensures quiet operation of the AC and the Skew Fan is tilted by 15-degrees to help reduce air surface pressure on the fan, resulting in reduced peak air mode, while the Brushless DC Fan Motor allows for low noise levels.
It also come with the Twin Rotary Compressor, which is a specialised motor that offers efficient operation.
The LG WS Series features built-in technology that monitors refrigerant levels and before it reaches the dangerously low-level, the unit will shut down to avoid damage to the compressor and help protect the unit.
Furthermore, LG offers a 10-year parts warranty on the Inverter Compressor, offering peace-of-mind to users.
