  • LG smart appliances include features that make it easy to connect your appliances to your smartphone, e.g., Near Field Communications (NFC).They offer self-diagnosis capabilities, so it can tell a user via their smartphone when and why it’s experiencing a problem. It can also allow the machine to get better over time via washing cycle downloads – so if LG engineers a better way to wash your undies, theoretically they’ll be able to push it out to your smartphone and your washer whenever you choose to connect. LG uses open source in their smart appliances: https://www.lg.com/global/support/opensource/opensourceList?superOsCategoryId=CAT00000014&osCategoryId=
