LG adds NFC to smart appliances
The Korean consumer electronics maker has added an NFC-enabled refrigerator, washing machine, oven and vacuum cleaner to its lineup of NFC phones, smart TVs, media hub and speakers.
Consumer electronics maker LG has added an NFC-enabled refrigerator, washing machine, oven and vacuum cleaner to the list of NFC home electronics devices it launched at the CES show in Las Vegas last week.
The new smart appliances all use LG's Smart Control technology, which now includes NFC, allowing users to pair their smartphones with their white goods via an NFC Tag-on touch point on the appliance. They can then subsequently manage the machines remotely over a WiFi connection.
