LG introduces the enablement of interbrand connectivity using the ThinQ app

LG Electronics (LG) has announced its first commercial implementation of the Home Connectivity Alliance's (HCA) Specification 1.0, which will enable the connectivity of appliances through the LG ThinQ™ smart home platform regardless of the brand. Partnering with various brands, consumers will be able to control their appliances, such as washing machines and dishwashers, through the app may it be LG, Samsung, or Vestel.

In a news release, LG said this cross-brand interconnectivity is the realization of HCA’s vision: to have a seamless, unified smart home experience. They worked closely with other appliance makers to drive the technology of HCA Specification 1.0.

LG also supported the work of the Connectivity Standards Alliance (CSA), a global organization dedicated to developing open communication protocols for smart home devices, and contributed to the development of the Matter protocol, an internet protocol-based home IoT communications standard led by the CSA.

"LG will continue to expand compatibility between ThinQ and other HCA members' smart home platforms,” said Jung Ki-hyun, executive vice president and head of platform business center at LG.
