Next level clean with LG’s AI DD Washing Machine

We were forced to skimp on several things when the quarantine started. Not one of them, however, is laundry duty. Just when we thought we could lessen our laundry load because most of us are just staying at home anyway, overall cleanliness inside the home has become far more important these days, especially when we’re living with frontliners and essential workers.

Clean clothes are important more than ever because of the risk of pathogens staying on fabric. This leads to more frequent laundry loads that some washing machines simply could not handle. Frequent use of your washing machine may lead to damaged clothes and even damaged hardware.

LG, one of the world’s pioneering technological innovators, heeds the call for more intelligent home appliances with its new LG AI DD — a washing machine that detects, thinks, and cares.

The biggest innovation that the LG AI DD washing machine has to offer is its cutting-edge artificial intelligence. LG’s next-generation Direct Drive motor makes intelligence-based laundry a reality by leveraging big data to recognize fabric softness and applying the optimal washing pattern, leading to 18% more fabric protection. The technology goes beyond just the tag of your clothes and analyzes a number of fabric characteristics and properties. AI DD detects the difference and decides the suitable washing pattern from the big data patterns.

The LG AI DD also offers Steam+ technology, which reduces allergens with the ‘Allergy Care’ cycle. Use the ‘Allergy Care’ cycle and the Steam feature when you need to eliminate potential allergens like dust mites and pollen from clothing and bedding. It also has TurboWash 360˚, which promises that your laundry can be thoroughly cleaned in just 39 minutes without compromising fabric protection, thanks to 4 directions of 3D multi nozzles which reach every inch of your laundry. You get more energy efficiency and the damage to your loads are lessened. 

LG also ensures that you get all of these innovations at no expense to size. You get a bigger drum capacity in the same space. Durability is also taken a notch higher with an elegant external tempered glass door with refined hygienic and stainless lifter. Since the LG AI DD employs the use of artificial intelligence, it can also be controlled using LG’s app. With ThinQ technology, your washer just got smarter, from operating your laundry remotely to downloading additional cycle settings. Interact with your washing machine and access the latest innovations.

To formally launch the LG AI DD to the local market, LG Philippines will be hosting a Facebook Live event. The campaign, dubbed as #UnboxYourNextLevelClean, will be held on September 28 at 5PM hosted by Binibining Grand International of Binibining Pilipinas 2016 Nicole Cordoves.

LG AIDD starts at PhP 61,995 for the 10.5kg washer model. The washer and dryer units are pegged at 10.5/7kg at PhP 67,995, 15/8kg at PhP 78,995, and 19/12kg at PhP 88,995. The LG AI DD Washing Machine is available in Lazmall and other authorized online sellers and dealers nationwide. For a complete list of retailers, please visit www.lg.com/ph.

Improve your home this New Year with the help of Samsung

What I love about the new year is the chance to start anew. Whether it’s about your personal life, career, relationships, and others, the new year always brings a perfect opportunity to do all the big changes. For your home, sprucing up can be done without having to go through all the pains of a major renovation.

Here are some tips on how to get started with your home improvement projects this 2020:

Set intention

Having a goal in mind makes any project faster and easier. Make a checklist for everything that you need to do to keep your home improvement project going. For example, a kitchen should be efficient and clean all the time, the dining area should have the option to accommodate more people, and rooms must be comfortable for all guests.

Clean out your pantry

Unload kitchen shelves and cabinets to see everything that is stocked up in the pantry. This makes it easier to wipe down dust and crumbs that have been hiding behind jars and containers. Toss out any expired goods as well as unused cookbooks and cooking magazines. When putting back the items, remember to keep the most used products in front for easy access.

Organize and label

Keep items in baskets, crates, or trays for a clutter-free home. Categorizing and using labels can make anything easier to locate. You can either use a label maker or just simply cut out tags and write on them. This is also the chance to determine which items to keep or put up for donation.

Make the house more energy efficient

Keep your expenses down this year by taking control of your electricity bill. Switch to appliances that consume less energy. Smart home appliances are mostly designed to be energy efficient, plus they also come with modern functionalities that are easy to control anywhere, anytime.

Consider investing in an air conditioner with Digital Inverter Technology, like the Samsung Premium Inverter Wind-Free-Plus. It has a Wind-Free Cooling function that maintains the level of temperature without the unpleasant feeling of cold wind. Most importantly, it saves up to 68% energy compared to conventional models.

Update kitchen appliances

Take a look at the devices and appliances in your kitchen and check for damages. Carefully assess the condition and decide which ones need to be replaced. It is ideal that new appliances harmoniously match the current theme or design of your kitchen. This saves a great deal of money for renovation while keeping the place looking sleek.

Samsung not only offers refrigerators with innovations that nurture but also seamless and modern design that can make any space stand out. One of these is the Samsung Side by Side No Frost Space Max Interior, which features a Digital Inverter Compressor technology that reduces wear and tear while ensuring a 21-year lifespan durability.

For a more accessible way to get food items, the Samsung French Door has a Food Showcase feature that allows minimal door opening so the refrigerator stays cool and preserves energy.

The Samsung 3-Door Side by Side No Frost Space Max Interior w/ Flexzone uses SpaceMax technology that allows extra food storage because of its thinner walls compared to traditional refrigerators. This enables more space with the cooling
performance to keep food fresh with the best temperature!

Turn your home to its best self this New Year. For more information on the Samsung Digital Appliances, visit Samsung.com/ph and like SamsungPH on Facebook.

Redifine home air-conditioning with Ambi Climate

Ambi Climate, the world’s first air conditioner accessory that uses artificial intelligence to redefine the air conditioner usage paradigm, is now in the Philippines. The device delivers enhanced comfort and helps you save money by reducing energy consumption at home.

Air conditioners today may be capable of controling a set point temperature, but there are many factors other than temperature control that can affect your comfort–among them are humidity, sunlight, changes in outdoor weather, and more. Through the Ambi Climate’s companion app, all you need to do is to indicate if you are feeling hot, cold, or comfortable, and the A.I. engine will learn the impact of these factors on you. As these factors change, the A.I. will automatically adjust your air conditioner, delivering better comfort and virtually eliminating overcooling and overheating. This reduces up to 30% in your AC energy consumption in the process.

Ambi Climate brings the smart home experience to life by making home climate control effortless. Whether it’s turning on your AC before you get home or setting rules and timers for when you’re out of the house, Ambi Climate provides you with the tools you need to better monitor and control your AC anywhere, anytime, via your smartphone. Ambi Climate is also IFTTT and Amazon Alexa enabled, which allows you to control your AC based on your location, enable voice control, and deliver a truly connected smart lifestyle.

With a sleek and stylish design, Ambi Climate offers you with smarter convenience, personalised comfort and a true smart home experience. It is ideal for the eco-conscious, pet owners and parents alike.

If you have a LCD screen remote-controlled AC–whether it’s a window, wall-mounted, or portable type–Ambi Climate can work with it. It’s currently compatible with 50 brands and 1,200 AC models, and is continually expanding coverage. Its infrared code database makes setting up your Ambi Climate simple, since no learning or programming of your remote is required.

How to Set-up Guide Quick Steps

Setting up Ambi Climate is a breeze. Here’s how:

  • Download the free Ambi Climate app (available via iOS/Android) and sign up for your Ambi Climate account
  • Plug in your Ambi Climate and place the device in front of your AC. The LED blinks yellow rapidly as it’s booting up and slows down to a pulse when it is ready for setup.
  • In-app, select “Add a Device”, then go to your smartphone’s Wi-Fi settings to connect to the “AmbiClimateXXX” network
  • Return to the Ambi Climate app and input your network SSID and password. The LED will change to teal when Ambi Climate has successfully connected to your network and the cloud.
  • Follow the in-app instructions to pair to your remote

Ambi Climate is priced at P7,995, and is available at SM Appliance branches at SM Aura, Powerplant Mall, and SM Megamall, and at Powermac Center branches at SM Megamall, SM Aura, Greenbelt, Trinoma Mall, and Festival Mall. You may also check out the Ambi Climate PH stores in Lazmall and Shopee Mall.

Technology has come so far and these days home appliances are gearing up for a smarter, more connected home. Smart appliances have been in the market for a couple of years now, but have they truly lived up to their name?

LG Philippines is definitely taking the smart home game to a whole new level with its vision of a truly smart home. Powered by its proprietary ThinQ AI technology, LG uses “knowledge drawn from data analytics and machine learning algorithms to understand the user’s patterns and preferences,” according to Inkwun Heo, managing director for LG Philippines. “As it adapts and learns from the user’s behavior, LG ThinQ products will ultimately evolve to anticipate the user’s needs and deliver heightened performance,” he adds.

All the latest products from LG are now powered by AI ThinQ technology. This allows home appliances to communicate with each other in order to provide its users—a.k.a. you and your family—an indispensable and genuinely helpful system.

The LG Twin Wash saves homemakers precious time by doing two laundry loads simultaneously. Unlike other automatic washing machines where you cannot open the tub to add more clothes once the cycle has started, the LGTwin Wash has a very helpful “pause” and “add item” function.

For bigger families and homes, the LG Stacking Washer/Dryer Front Load makes all the difference not just in keeping clothes clean, but also in getting rid of dustmites, bacteria and allergens with the use of steam.

The LG Black Turbo Wash 3D is another option that can fit smaller homes, but definitely won’t shortchange you in features and functions.

For the kitchen, the LG Instaview Door-in-Door refrigerator has a cool feature on its see-through door panel where you can “knock twice” to illuminate the inside of the fridge and see its contents without opening the doors. This helps reduce cold air loss to keep food fresher longer and save energy at the same time. Its modern French door design also gives your kitchen that sleek look, plus it has an Extra Space compartment for your small or loose items and a retractable shelf for your taller and oddly-shaped items.

Meanwhile, the LG Black Two-Door Top Freezer offers a blend of timeless style with the latest innovations, maximum storage space, advanced digital temperature controls, and exclusive LG technology. It’s perfect for starter homes, condominiums, or bachelor/bachelorette pads.

All of LG’s refrigerators have a 10-year warranty for its Inverter Linear Compressor and the Smart Inverter Compressor, as well as a 2-year warranty for parts and service.

Wi-Fi enabled appliances can also be controlled using the LG SmartThinQ App. With the App, you can do your laundry while you’re stuck in a meeting by starting and stopping wash cycles remotely. You can get notifications when your laundry is done and receive helpful reminders about scheduled maintenance.

Clean clothes and get rid of allergies with LG’s Heat Pump Dryer

LG Dual Inverter Heat Pump Dryer RC09VHP2V

Some people may love a good rainy day, but not a mom who has piles of clothes to wash and dry.

Doing laundry without the sun beating down to help dry and sanitize the clothes is perhaps one of the most challenging chores because if the weather doesn’t cooperate, you’re going to end up with damp clothes that everyone can smell from a mile away. The best solution for this problem is to invest in a dryer, which guarantees a significant lifestyle improvement.

LG Dual Inverter Heat Pump Dryer RC09VHP2V

LG’s Dual Inverter Heat Pump Dryer (RC09VHP2V) is one of the best dryer options in the market today. With its eco options, you get the flexibility to focus on energy efficiency or time-saving. While drying a load, its advanced DUAL Inverter Heat Pump™ with Eco Hybrid technology provides you the choice of saving energy or saving time, tailoring it specifically to your needs and lifestyle.

Not too picky about the eco options? You can let it do its own thing since it also has Sensor Dry technology, which optimizes drying performance by detecting moisture on the clothes and automatically sets the drying time.

Shrinkage is a non-issue with the RC09VHP2V, as LG’s Dual Heat Pump Dryer technology uses a lower temperature than regular dryers, which smoothens creases and significantly reduces shrinkage.

It’s also perfect for families with young children or those with allergies as the Allergy Care Cycle reduces 99.9% allergens, such as house mites that can cause allergy or respiratory issues, improving your quality of life by keeping an allergen-free environment. The dryer is certified by the British Allergy Foundation (BAF).

LG Dual Inverter Heat Pump Dryer RC09VHP2V

Committed to the vision of a true smart home, LG also outfitted the RC09VHP2V with SmartThinQ technology, making it easy to interact with your other LG home appliances. Using the app, you can operate and monitor your laundry from anywhere, track energy consumption, and download cycle presets. It also comes with a Smart Diagnosis function to quickly troubleshoot any minor issue before it becomes a problem.

The LG Dual Inverter Heat Pump Dryer also scores style points. It has a sleek brushed steel finish, with a big chrome rim door and a hidden handle providing an uninterrupted silhouette. The door is also reversible, giving you the flexibility to maximize space and ergonomics.

You never have to worry about aftersales as the LG Dual Inverter Heat Pump Dryer has a 10 Year Warranty–both the DUAL Inverter Compressor and the Inverter Motor have a 10-year warranty, giving you the guarantee that the dryer will always be hassle-free.
