The Many Ways LG Innovates IoT to Future-Proof your Home: Managing Chores Easily and Remotely!

The Internet of Things (IoT) has gone beyond being a buzzword and established a new world order wherein technology works to make people’s lives easier and more manageable.  Suddenly, all the contraptions that we saw in the animated series “The Jetsons” do not seem that far from reality.
When you think of IoT, you may think of wearables that track how much exercise and sleep you get or watches that allow you to send text messages.  Then, of course, there are the many, many things you can now take control with the use of your smartphone. LG's SmartThinQ is user-centric.  It helps consumers better manage their lives through intuitive technology that fills the need for more convenient and more efficient home care.
