In addition to smartphones and TV products, LG is also known for its home appliances, according to slash Gear, amedia outlet. Many of the company’s appliances are becoming smarter, relying on mobile technology and automation to make it easier to do the housework. The latest example is a smart device that LG will unveil next month that allows users to grow vegetables indoors.
Growing vegetables is not easy, especially when considering weather conditions and climate. LG (not yet named) devices will “replicate” the ideal conditions for growing herbs and vegetables throughout the year. Column indoor gardening equipment uses a variety of techniques to replicate outdoor conditions in its large cabinets. LED lights, forced ventilation and core-based water management are adjusted to match temperature and conditions at the time of day.
Of course, the device also involves many intelligent technologies. Non-circular water supplies distribute the exact amount of water needed for plants, thus preventing algae from growing and producing unpleasant odors. The smartphone app allows users to not only monitor conditions inside the device, but also provide tips on how to maximize plant growth.
LG’s state-of-the-art indoor gardening equipment can accommodate up to 24 multi-one seed packs, depending on their size. There are no details on price or availability, but the device will be available at the LG booth at CES 2020.
