Keeping up with the fast-paced lifestyle of the digital age is the top priority for today's consumers.

But with new tools and software being produced by the minute, sometimes it's hard to keep up. We wish we could do everything using a single device. Did you ever imagine doing your laundry and making ice cubes with your smartphone? 

Global tech manufacturer LG has once again claimed leadership in innovation by launching SmartThinQ, a user-centric tool that enables consumers to manage their lives through intuitive technology, answering the demand for a more convenient and efficient home care.

SmartThinQ is incorporated in LG's newest appliances, the LG InstaView Door-in-Door Refrigerator and the LG TWINWash. 

LG InstaView Door-in-Door Refrigerator 

With just two knocks, the LG InstaView Door-in-Door Refrigerator allows you to see the contents of its easy-access compartment. This eliminates the need to open the refrigerator door to find out what's inside. This innovation results in 41% less cold air loss, making food and drinks stay fresh longer while saving electricity. 

The LG InstaView Door-in-Door Refrigerator also has a Moist Balance Crisper that keeps moisture level at optimal levels, so you get juicy fruits and crispy vegetables every time. Moreover, it has a SpacePlus Ice System with 20% bigger ice storage space than the conventional refrigerator. With this, you can have more ice for all the different ways you want to chill and keep cool. In terms of energy consumption, the Inverter Linear Compressor results in 32% energy savings for a 20-year life span. 

SmartThinQ enables you to control the functions of the LG InstaView Door-in-Door Refrigerator even when you’re out. You can adjust temperature settings, turn Express Freeze‘on’ and ‘off’, and troubleshoot with the Smart Diagnosis. 


Meanwhile, LG TWINWash cuts down on laundry time by allowing you to do two separate loads with different settings at the same time: the main TWINWash is for your regular load, while the TWINWash Mini is for delicate and special items.

LG’s unique TurboWash technology combines a jet spray in the main washer to target a concentrated solution of detergent directly onto the clothes and an atomizing rinse spray that releases tiny water particles through the clothes during high spin cycles for more effective rinsing.

Meanwhile, the revolutionary Inverter Direct Drive motor that is attached directly to the drum gives you improved efficiency and enhanced durability.

SmartThinQ lets your phone function as a smart remote control so you can start your laundry even when you’re not at home. You can also monitor how your load is coming along and have push alerts sent to your phone when the cycle is complete or an error occurs in the machine. That means you can spend time running errands as your laundry is being washed. Smart Diagnosis also allows you to fix minor problems without having to call the service center.

Indeed, with SmartThinQ's intuitive and convenient features, anyone can make his life extra manageable. LG InstaView Door-in-Door Refrigerator and LG TWINWash aim to complement and not complicate our everyday lives.
