Smart-home au­toma­tions are chang­ing the way we live, pro­vid­ing added con­ve­nience to the com­fort of our homes. You may have heard of sound- or mo­tion-ac­ti­vated de­vices, which switch your lights and air con­di­tion­ers on, or even draw your blinds and cur­tains, but have you seen a smart re­frig­er­a­tor that is not just Wi-Fi-en­abled, but also al­lows you to see the con­tents of your fridge with­out open­ing the door?

South Korean elec­tron­ics com­pany LG re­cently launched the 601-litre In­staview door-in-door re­frig­er­a­tor. It looks just like a reg­u­lar fridge with a screen, but knock on the sleek mir­rored glass panel and you will be in for a sur­prise! When the fea­ture is ac­ti­vated, you’ll see in­side the easy ac­cess com­part­ments thanks to the il­lu­mi­nated screen.

More than just con­ve­nient, this is also an eco-friendly fea­ture as cold air is not lost, which helps to keep food fresher for a longer pe­riod of time as tem­per­a­ture fluc­tu­a­tion is re­duced. This also helps if you find your­self open­ing and clos­ing the fridge door sev­eral times in a day.

In ad­di­tion, the in­verter lin­ear com­pres­sor at the core of the ap­pli­ance pro­vides up to 32 per cent of en­ergy sav­ings, too. A Hy­giene Fresh five-step air fil­ter helps re­move up to 99.9 per cent of bac­te­ria and odours, so you can be as­sured that food stays fresh, and the in­te­rior of your fridge does not smell. This aids in pre­vent­ing cross con­tam­i­na­tion of odours be­tween raw and fresh food or fruits.

The Fresh Balancer func­tion also en­sures that fruits and veg­eta­bles are kept at the right tem­per­a­ture, main­tain­ing fresh­ness.

LG cre­ated the SmartThinQ ap­pli­ca­tion to en­able busy home­own­ers to con­trol their re­frig­er­a­tor re­motely. Through the app, you can set the tem­per­a­ture, con­trol the Hy­giene Fresh func­tion and many other fea­tures.

In the freezer com­part­ment, there’s even a Space Plus ice sys­tem — a slim door-mounted ice­maker — that of­fers more stor­age space for other frozen food.

With these high-tech and user-friendly fea­tures, the LG In­staview door-in-door re­frig­er­a­tor sets a new stan­dard and rev­o­lu­tionises the way we live.
