Today, millions of Kenyans are connected to the internet. The communications authority of Kenya sector statistics reports ending March 2022 shows that current internet subscriptions stand at 46.5 million.

With these high internet connections, more and more people continue to embrace a digital lifestyle to complement an always busy and hectic lifestyle. In addition, with daily chores and tasks becoming more challenging to manage, most people are making a decision to live an easier, more practical, and more convenient life by automating their homes or adopting a smart home system.

This is a system where an interconnected network is set up in an apartment or a house, which allows the owner to control their home appliances remotely and/or by voice demand.

The elements which make up this smart home include smart home appliances and devices, a smartphone, and a Wi-Fi connection. The home appliances need to be designed and ready to be part of home automation, the smartphone will enable you to control your smart home system, and ideally – it is none other than your smartphone that is in your reach most of the time while a Wi-Fi connection is like the glue that sticks all the pieces together; without a Wi-Fi connection, home automation will simply not operate as you will not be able to connect your smartphone to your smart home appliances. In this day and age, companies such as LG Electronics have gone above and beyond consumer expectations to make smart home appliances that make it easy for consumers to make a smart home.

For any consumer, making a smart home begins by purchasing smart home appliances. This includes but is not limited to smart TVs, smart refrigerators, smart washing machines, and the downloading of a smart mobile LG ThinQ app to help you to monitor and control your appliances anytime, from anywhere.

LG Electronics Smart TVs such as the Smart OLED TVs, are powered by advanced artificial intelligence technologies that make your home smart and convenient. Some of these technologies are the intelligent voice recognition feature that enables you to control your TV with simple commands. In the instance that you lose your remote control, you can use the LG ThinQ mobile app. In addition, there are AI processors that analyze on-screen content to adjust it to the best possible audio, picture, and video in accordance with your viewing environment.

Also, these TVs provide a Home Dashboard that displays the status of your other smart home appliances and notifies you of any situation that you should be aware of, such as the fridge door is open and the remaining time for the washing cycle to end.

To women or house managers who are often burdened with laundry, smart washing machines will go a long way in not only ensuring you have a smart home but also making your life easy. Machines such as AI DD™ washing machines, identify your laundry’s fabric type, giving long life to your clothes by providing optimal washing patterns. They also troubleshoot minor issues quickly before they escalate.

Besides, for those of us who like keeping food fresh, you can opt for LG smart refrigerators designed to be connected to your smartphone to control the refrigerator’s temperature, control Express Freeze, and receive any diagnostics of your refrigerator on your LGThinQ app.

The app is available on App Store and Google Play, once installed you will be one touch away from having your smart home system up and running. It will let you start, stop and check the status of your home appliances wherever you are. This includes turning on the low-energy mode in your smart refrigerator while away, and controlling your TV from another room.

Other functions of the app include monitoring the progress your smart washing machine or smart dryer is making so you do not wait by them, in addition to checking their status and that of other appliances while you are away.

To proactively care for and maintain your smart appliances in a smart way, and make the best use of them, the LG ThinQ App checks if your Wi-Fi-connected smart home appliances are running properly, and it notifies you with alerts when minor issues come up in order to prevent bigger issues of occurring. Case of any problems, it diagnoses by troubleshooting in case any appliance develops a problem. This is essential and it saves you time as well as the hassle of having to deal with rogue technicians.
