“HA House Summer” is a 5-story home converted from the personal residence of DEZU Group’s founder. Featuring a simple yet modern white exterior design, the building itself utilizes large floor-to-ceiling windows to create a living space that harmonizes with surrounding nature.
This sprawling house is filled with LG’s full range of Wi-Fi-enabled smart home appliances, including LG DUALCOOL air conditioner, LG PuriCare 360° Air Purifier, LG PuriCare AeroTower and LG QuadWash dishwasher. Guests can turn on each floor’s air conditioner via the ThinQ app before entering to enjoy a cool temperature and fresh air as soon as they step inside.
The wireless, portable XBOOM 360 Bluetooth speaker provides immersive surround sound while LG StanbyME, a 27-inch wireless touchscreen monitor with movable stand, lets guests enjoy audio and video entertainment on the outdoor turf, at the pool, in the basement’s gaming room and everywhere in between.

Continuing its collaborations with global travel and accommodation providers, LG will ensure the smart life is no longer limited to the home and the most instantaneous smart services will be harnessed to create a minimalist lifestyle with infinite possibilities during travels.

Just purchased this and the set up is driving me nuts. I have a Sony reciever that I use for my audio out as well as HDMI device switching. The output of the reciever is going to HDMI 1. The TV audio out is set to HDMI (ARC) device. When watching devices directly connected to the reciever (cable box, roku, DVD, Tivo), audio out is fine. If I try switching to the smart menu or the antenna, there is no audio going from the TV back to the reciever. I also have a Roku I can use for streaming, but not for OTA. Should I just route everything directly into the TV, and use the optical out to get sound to the reciever? Also since setting up the TV and remote there is strange interaction btween the TV and the reciever. I noticed that my cable box, dvd, and roku all show up devices attached to HDMI 1, and clicking on that device will change the input on the reciever, but I have no control over the reciever from the LG remote, volume and muting buttons have no effect. Also there soesn't seem to be anyway to control my Fios cable box, a Motorola HD QIp 7100-1. I have the IR blaster sitting right next to it

During his visit, CEO Cho also made sure to state how East Africa had become a promising, rapidly-growing market through strong economic fundamentals underpinned by a youthful, urbanizing middle-class population and ever-increasing investment in infrastructure and other key economic sectors.
“As we see great opportunities and potential in this market, we will continue to strengthen our business relationships with countries in the region to help them unlock their full potential,” said Mr. Cho.
While visiting Tanzania, Mr. Cho met with Prime Minister Kassim Majaliwa and several other senior government officials to pledge the company’s commitment to expanding the nation’s distribution and retail network in an effort to aid the growth of the economy and make life better for local communities.
During this memorable meeting, Prime Minister Majaliwa lauded LG for believing in the country through investment and creating opportunities for locals.
“We applaud LG for its contributions to our economy and reaffirm our government’s support in creating a conducive environment for local and foreign companies willing to do business in Tanzania,” said Prime Minister Majaliwa.
To expand its business in Kenya, Tanzania, Ethiopia and Sudan, LG is opening new shops and refurbishing existing ones as it seeks to keep pace with the continent’s rising demand for the company’s home appliances, entertainment devices and air solutions.
The company will continue championing Busan, Korea’s picturesque coastal city, as the perfect host for World Expo 2030 by executing diverse promotional events worldwide with the help of its influential global network comprised of 140 subsidiaries.

I’m French sorry for my poor english
I was wondering if it’s possible to disable simplink (or only auto sync on) only on 1 HDMI device.
I have an LG C1, multiple HDMI devices which work perfectly with simplink, except an LG Blu-ray 4K player (UP970).
When I turn on a device, it turns on the TV, great! But if the Blu-ray
player was the last device I used, and I turn everything off, and then
I turn on a device, the TV then turns on and shows first the HDMI
Blu-ray player input (with no signal), then it shows the HDMI input of
the device I turned on, and finally the Blu-ray player turns on and
the TV switches back to the HDMI Blu-ray player input...
Any ideas on how to fix this?
