This all has some serious issues design wise. Very odd stuff like I have the ability to start a wash from the app, but not being able to start the drying cycle killing the convenience a smart app provides by making pretty useless since I have to get back home to finish the wash/dry cycle. The app is in Spanish for some reason and no option to change language (set up was in English though). There are many options in the app that reflect the actual buttons and function I can use on my washer/dryer combo, but about 90% of them are greyed out in the app without explaining why (it only lets me start a regular washing cycle which is just one of about 15 washing modes the machine has). Another dumb thing is that I need to physically push a button on the machine called remote mode to be able to use the app to set up a load and even dumber is the fact that while this remote mode is enabled I can’t monitor the was/dry cycle, it’s set up in a way where you can either control the machine with the app or monitor the wash/dry cycle with the app, but never both unless I walk to the machine and switch modes.
The only nice thing is that I get a push notification when the laundry load is done.
Please get your act together LG.
The actual appliances in combination with the app are awesome!!! I have a tendency to put a load of laundry and then forget all about it. The app helps keep me on task by alerting me when each load is done in the washer and dryer. If I’m not sure how much time is left on a load, it’s so easy to pull it up on the app to see how much longer it has to go. It’s also cool to keep track of the teenagers doing their chores unsupervised as well, as I still get the alerts - even if I’m not at home. Freaked my oldest out the first few times she did laundry while us parents were out of town - as I was able to tell her when the washer was done, LOL! Although, it would be even better if it could alert when the small pedestal washer is done as well. I’m happy to have appliances that work better for me, are more efficient, and help me be more efficient as well!!!😁😁😁
Not up to par with it's competitors
I love LG products... But sometimes their software doesn't even come close to their hardware. This is one of those times.
I'm using Smart ThinQ for my new multi zone LG Mini Split heat pumps. I expected a lot more functionality than this. Thermostat scheduling will only turn the units on and off, there is no temperature setting. There's no geofencing to turn the temp up or down when leaving or arriving. I can manually trigger home and away modes... But there's no way to change what those events trigger.
Essentially all I'm able to do with this app in regards to my climate control in my house is to manually turn the units on and off and manually set temperatures. If LG adds this ability in the future, the app could be somewhat worthwhile. I refuse to pay $100+ per room to add "real" smart integration via Flair or Sensibo or others when this product is fully capable if it had fleshed out software. I've found some vague write-ups online about adding the units to HASS, which I'll be trying shortly.
