LG ELECTRONICS SMART AC CONTROL SOLUTION ENABLES MOBILE DEVICES TO CONTROL HOME TEMPERATURE REMOTELY

New LG Smart AC Module for Duct-Free Systems Delivers Personalized Comfort, Ultimate Convenience and Energy Savings

ALPHARETTA, Ga., July 17, 2014 – LG Electronics USA has launched its new LG Smart AC Module that enables smartphone control of duct-free LG air conditioning systems*. Introduced just in time for the hottest days of summer, the new smart control solution helps consumers enhance their personal comfort and conserve energy, even while on the go. When paired with the free Smart AC app, available for compatible Android and iOS smartphones, the LG Smart AC Module allows users to remotely control their air conditioner to ensure that, whether at home or away, their home stays at the ideal temperature. The seamless accessibility and flexible control of the Smart AC Module allows homeowners to turn on their air conditioning prior to coming home, creating the desired environment right when they walk in.

The LG Smart AC module is the perfect complement to LG’s standard and high-efficiency single-zone inverter systems that have earned the coveted “ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient” designation. It provides a solution for homeowners looking for additional energy savings and lower utility bills by offering the ability to adjust temperature settings remotely even while they’re away from home.

The user’s wireless device communicates with the module on the indoor unit to control various functions and features, including temperature, fan speed and air flow directly through the smart phone app. Frequently used settings can be saved to a favorites list for easy replication of a preferred temperature scenario. Advanced settings include a sleep timer for programmed temperature control throughout the night and a purifying option for circulating filtered air.

“With LG, it’s all possible. We’re always looking for ways to offer consumers more convenience and flexibility and simplify their everyday tasks,” said Kevin McNamara, vice president of Commercial Air Conditioning at LG. “The Smart AC Module gives homeowners a way to customize their home temperature, even if they are away, easily fitting into their busy lifestyles.”

The LG Smart AC module is designed to provide mobile remote control for the following LG duct-free systems: High Efficiency Single Zone Inverter Models (LS091HSV3, LS121HSV3, LS181HSV3 and LS240HSV2), Standard Single Zone Inverter Models (LS307HV3 and LS360HV3) and the Art Cool Premier Models (LA090HYV and LA120HYV).

The LG Smart AC app is available today for download via the Android Google Play or the Apple App Store. Further details about the product can be found at www.lghvac.com.
