LLG Electronics Begins Long Distance Love Affair With Laundry Via Introduction of Industry's First Remote Monitoring System
Breakthrough, First-of-its-Kind System Offers More Convenience and Flexibility to On-the-Go Consumers
ORLANDO, Fla., Jan. 13 -LG Electronics, a leading global consumer products manufacturer, today unveiled the LG Remote Monitoring Laundry System. Shown for the first time at the 2005 International Builders' Show at the Orlando Convention Center (Booth #W1501), January 13-16, 2005, this unique washer and dryer system offers today's busy consumers the freedom and convenience to monitor their laundry cycle remotely, with a small device -- ultimately letting them spend more of their time focusing on activities they enjoy.
"This is the age of automation and consumers are seeking ways to make their lives more efficient and enjoyable, and are looking for products to help them do so. At LG, we are dedicated to creating innovative home appliances that do just that -- helping to simplify consumers' daily lives -- and the LG Remote Monitoring Laundry System takes this concept to the next level," said Teddy Hwang, President of Digital Appliances for LG Electronics, U.S.A. "Reinforcing our brand promise of helping to make 'Life's Good,' a reality, the LG Remote Monitoring Laundry System, which is an industry-first, takes the hassle out of doing the laundry, and makes it an easier and less time consuming chore."
LG's Remote Monitoring Laundry System, which utilizes Power Line Communication (PLC) technology, comes with a separate monitor to allow for the remote monitoring. The remote monitoring system kit can be placed within the home into any electrical outlet.
The interface displays the washing/rinsing/spinning, remaining time, and a buzzer signifying the end of each cycle. With the remote monitoring system, users are able to see the progress of washing and drying cycles as well as remaining time of the cycles.
Additionally, the new LG Remote Monitoring Laundry System boasts all the desirable features of LG's popular front panel system, which has both control panels and the loading door on the front of the unit. These laundry units can be either stacked to save space or place side by side. In addition to its easy control access and sleek design, it also features the Direct Drive system, automatic temperature control and a 3.82 cubic foot (IEC) capacity -- one of the largest load capacities on the market. The washing machine also features one of the fastest spin speeds available at 1,320 RPM and boasts a 2.2 efficient energy rating.
The LG Remote Monitoring Laundry System is available at a manufacturer's suggested retail price of $1,349 for the washing machine, and $949 for the dryer. The remote monitoring device must be purchased. Both products are available in titanium finish, and will be available in 2Q 2005.
LG also offers a variety of other technologically-advanced, space-saving, cutting-edge designs for the laundry room, including the LG Tromm Front Control, Rear Control system and Wash & Dry combination.
