LG’s Intelligent Appliances and Amazon’s Convenient Service Make Life Easier and Homes Smarter for Europeans
LG Electronics (LG) will introduce its ThinQ™ home appliance lineup with integrated Amazon Dash Replenishment for the European market at IFA 2019, bringing the benefits of a fully automated smart home powered by LG’s AI platform augmented by Amazon’s smart supply-reordering and delivery system.
LG ThinQ appliances with Dash Replenishment save users the chore of repeatedly reordering essential supplies, allowing them to set up smart reordering of detergent and laundry supplies from Amazon when supplies run low so they never run out of essentials. The convenient service will initially be available on LG ThinQ washing machines and dishwashers in Europe including France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom starting this fall.
Users can enable Dash Replenishment on LG smart laundry and dishwasher appliances via the LG ThinQ™ (formerly SmartThinQ™) mobile app, which links to customers’ Amazon accounts. Once enabled, LG smart appliances and Dash Replenishment work together to automatically reorder and deliver pre-selected supplies such as dishwasher soap, laundry detergent or fabric softener right to the door when more are needed, based on how much supply is used. Amazon Dash Replenishment service for LG ThinQ refrigerators and air purifiers will be added in the near future.
The European region follows the successful rollout of Amazon Dash Replenishment on LG appliances earlier this year in the United States. Beyond Amazon, LG is teaming up with other AI-service providers such as Google and Yandex to expand the capabilities and convenience of its smart products in Europe, Asia and North America.
“We are thrilled to present our ThinQ lineup with Amazon Dash Replenishment for the European market at IFA 2019,” said Song Dae-hyun, president of LG Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solution Company. “Combining our industry-leading products with value-added services continues to be a strategic priority in order to create a smart home that allows customers to spend less time on chores and more time on what they enjoy.”
