LG units with embedded wifi

UK: LG has launched a new range of wall mounted air conditioning units with embedded wi-fi that are also compatible with its multi-split range.

In addition, the 10-year compressor warranty that already applies to its single-split wall-mount units is now extended to include the multi-split range.

The range includes the new outlook Artcool Mirror, the Deluxe and Standard Plus models. All units are A++ in cooling, and have added to the ranges existing high efficiency rating with A+ in heating, along with active energy control, and smart diagnosis. Artcool and Deluxe models are also equipped with Plasmaster Ionizer Plus filters. Sound levels are down to as low as 19dB.

All three new units feature embedded wi-fi so you can easily access your air conditioners by using smart internet devices such as Android or iOS based mobile phones. Smart diagnosis allows users to check set up, installation, troubleshooting and other related information direct from a smartphone via the LG Smart ThinQ app. 

LG’s Active Energy Control employed adjusts the energy consumption level by controlling maximum frequency of the compressor motor. This allows the user to select a default 100% available system capacity, to meet high load conditions, to 40% relative energy usage if the load is lowered in a situation such as where there are very few people in a room and very little activity taking place.

The Plasmaster Ionizer Plus filters available with Artcool Mirror and Deluxe are said to reduce harmful microscopic particles by infusing the air passing through the air conditioner with over 3 million ions.
