LUMI’s Aqara sensor embedded in LG products will enhance home safety and comfort by reducing energy consumption. For example, the embedded sensor in an LG air conditioner will be capable of setting the desired temperature and thus enable its automatic operation. And with the sensor attached to a window, a user will receive real-time notifications as and when it is opened while the LG appliance is in operation.
