SEOUL, July 19, 2022 — LG Electronics (LG) has been named to the Board of Directors of the Connectivity Standards Alliance (the Alliance), the leading global organization focused on developing, evolving and promoting universal open standards for the Internet of Things (IoT).

As the global home appliance market leader and a Promoter Member of the Alliance Board of Directors, LG brings a wealth of expertise and experience in smart home and communications technologies to the global organization. The newly appointed Board of Directors members are Don Williams of LG’s Chief Strategy Office and Dr. Sang Kim of LG’s Chief Technology Office.

With its elevated role within the Alliance, LG plans to actively participate in the development and standardization of Matter – the Alliance’s open-source IoT protocol for connecting smart home devices – and lead the expansion of the smart home ecosystem.

“Through our role on the Alliance board, we are demonstrating our full commitment to creating a more connected and convenient future,” said Dr. Kim Byoung-hoon, CTO and executive vice president of LG Electronics. “With the adoption and support of Matter, our growing lineup of smart products, including TVs, home appliances and IoT devices and sensors, will be able to connect to each other – and all compatible solutions – more securely and easily. We will continue to deliver innovative customer experiences and help drive the evolution of the smart home forward.”

Matter, an Internet Protocol (IP)-based communications standard for smart home technologies, is helping to create an open smart home environment where products from diverse manufacturers can communicate and share data, making compatibility issues a thing of the past.

LG aims to provide support for Matter across its convenience-enhancing smart platforms, including the LG ThinQ smart home platform and app and the award-winning webOS smart TV platform. The adoption of Matter will not only benefit LG customers but also strengthen the overall competitiveness of the company’s innovative home appliances and TV lineups.

“Like the Alliance, at LG, we are committed to evolving and improving the world in which we live,” said LG Senior Vice President of Innovation Dr. Sokwoo Rhee, and head of LG’s North American Innovation Center, LG NOVA. “For us, this means innovative product development focused on delivering a better user experience and improving how we provide service and value in the home and beyond. We look forward to this collaboration and all the opportunities to come.”

“LG brings great energy and market reach to the Alliance, with its wide-range of products to their engineering expertise and connectivity solutions, but what makes the Alliance stronger with LG is its dedication to innovation,” said Tobin Richardson, President, and CEO of the Connectivity Standards Alliance. “We are excited to have LG join our Board to help spur even greater innovation in what’s next with Matter, expanding the value of the Internet of Things to consumer everywhere.”

Composed of more than 500 companies, the Alliance’s global membership collaborates to create open standards for the IoT, transforming the way we live, work and play. With its members’ deep and diverse expertise, robust certification programs and a full suite of open IoT solutions, the Alliance is leading the movement toward a more intuitive, imaginative and useful world.

      I can stream ABC content using either the iView app on our LG G1 65" OLED, or via the iView Android TV app that is installed on a Chromecast with Google TV that is plugged into one of the G1 HDMI ports. If I stream content using the app on the TV, every few minutes there's a momentary (fraction of a second) interruption to both sound and video. If I stream the same content using the app on the Chromecast, I get no such interruptions. Both TV and Chromecast are using wired Ethernet connections to the same switch, so I can't see that these interruptions are due to a network problem, or I'd see them on both devices. It would seem to be a problem with the app provided on the TV. Other streaming services that we access via apps on the TV (Netflix, Stan, Amazon Prime, etc) do not show the same problem.

      I want to be able to turn on my TV without it automatically launching a cable channel. ( or repeatedly asking me if I want to turn on the cable box).  Is there any way to "just' start with the home screen? Also when I've been watching something (app or cable) and go back to Home screen, it will go back to what I was watching if there is no input for a minute or so. grrrr. so annoying

      Thanks to several breakthrough innovations of recent decades, several home appliances can work in unison via NFC Tag, Bluetooth or Wi-Fi to form the integrated home solutions that put the ‘smart’ in smart home. With technology advancing so rapidly, the role of the smart home has evolved from simply providing basic functions to now offering subscription services and integrated care services that elevate people’s wellbeing.

      Since debuting in 2017, LG’s ThinQ smart home solution has been helping people live more accessible, more comfortable everyday lives in multiple ways. With the advanced ThinQ platform controlling the home, consumers can set a routine that automates multiple appliances at once while being able to monitor them in real time remotely. The comprehensive home assistant even comes with ThinQ Care, which identifies potential issues, and the ability to purchase supplies or replacements on the ThinQ store with ease.1
      Let’s explore how LG ThinQ is bringing next-level convenience and smarter control to thousands, if not millions, of homes across the world.

      Preparing meals has never been simpler
      When arriving home exhausted, cooking may be the last thing on your mind. With ThinQ Recipe guiding you every step of the way, creating tasty, healthy dishes is less of a chore and more of a hobby. To kick the cooking process off, ThinQ uses your preferences and dietary needs to recommend both trendy online recipes and LG Original Series recipes – prepared and tested by LG food scientists and chefs to unlock LG oven’s full potential. But before cooking your selected recipe can start, do you have all the required ingredients? In collaboration with Amazon Fresh, Walmart, Walmart, Kroger, Target and Instacart, you can now make sure you’re never missing an item by ordering supplies from your favorite grocery store via the app.2 So, once you’re ready to cook, open up a video guide and follow the instructions. Then put your creation in the LG InstaViewTM Oven, which is ready to go thanks to LG ThinQ having already sent over the temperature and cooking time that will cook it to perfection. The only thing left to do after the food has been cooked and served is to make sure the room temperature is perfect for you by controlling the LG DUALCOOL air conditioner via the app. Now you can enjoy your perfectly home-cooked meal to the fullest.

      Providing the smart home solutions everyone can use
      To make sure everyone can experience a convenient, connected smart home, LG ThinQ has incorporated useful voice guides to provide better accessibility. Through voice recognition technology, elderly people or those unfamiliar with smartphone can directly speak to your Alexa, Google Assistant devices or directly to LG ThinQ app to give instant verbal feedback on device-related problems.

      LG ThinQ-powered convenience is now available with most LG devices, including its well-known refrigerators, washing machines, air conditioners as well as its Air Water Heat Pump (AWHP), WashTower, ceiling fans and more. And since these appliances become more compatible with Google Assistant now in almost a hundred countries and Amazon Alexa in sixty-four, more people can get accurate information on their appliances in a matter of seconds.3

      Joining Matter for a more integrated platform
      What’s more, LG recently joined the Board of Directors of the Connectivity Standards Alliance (CSA), the leading global organization for developing, evolving and promoting universal open standards for the Internet of Things (IoT). LG will lead the way in developing smart home ecosystems by actively participating in the development and standardization of Matter, the Alliance’s open-source IoT protocol for connecting smart home devices.

      With LG ThinQ, every person, disability or no disability, can experience the smart homes that make daily life simpler and easier through innovative functions and state-of-the-art appliances.
