LG Electronics will unveil its newest addition to its IoT ecosystem, the LG Smart ThinQ Hub, at CES 2016. It features a 3.5-inch color LDC display and serves as a gateway to smart sensors and connected appliances in the home while also displaying reminders from personal calendars and streaming music from its built-in speaker.
The Smart ThinQ Hub monitors, controls, and collects information from home appliances such as washing machines, refrigerators, ovens, robotic vacuum cleaners, air conditioners, and a variety of sensors. Data is displayed in the form of notifications on the LCD screen or announced through its speaker of the LG Smart ThinQ Hub, acting as the central “hub” of the smart home. This allows users to communicate via a single device instead of a separate smartphone app for each smart-enabled product.
In addition to its technical innovations, the hub also has aesthetic appeal. The unit features a metallic body in two attractive color schemes: Champagne Gold and Black. The LCD display is tilted at an angle to be easily legible and the internal speaker can stream music from thousands of free stations from either iHeartRadio or Bluetooth-enabled devices.
The LG Smart ThinQ Hub, Smart ThinQ sensor, and other smart technology products will be on display at LG’s booth #8204 in the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center from January 6-9.
