“LG believes that it has a responsibility to produce technology that has a positive impact on the environment,” said Tae-IckSon, Managing Director, LG Kenya. “The Internet of Things: Heightened Connectivity the term Internet of Things (IoT) has become a catch-all for all of the devices, concepts and technologies that are inspired by the vision of a future driven by interconnected smart devices. IoT devices have the incredible potential to enhance user convenience by simplifying how users interact with their technology. Concepts that seem stolen from science fiction may become reality in just a few short years.”
LG has developed HomeChat which is perhaps the best example of cutting-edge, futuristic IoT technology that is already widely available. An application that allows users to interact with their appliances through text messages, the incredible HomeChat system helps users get the most out of the technology in their home.
