What Is Smart Home Technology?

What if all the devices in your life could connect to the internet? Not just computers and smartphones, but everything: clocks, speakers, lights, door bells, cameras, windows, window blinds, hot water heaters, appliances, cooking utensils, you name it. And what if those devices could all communicate, send you information, and take your commands? It's not science fiction; it's the Internet of Things (IoT), and it's a key component of home automation and smart homes.

Smart Home Hubs and Controllers

Smart devices are electronic devices equipped with wireless protocols that allow them to be controlled and activated by voice command, or more commonly, through mobile app technology that can be accessed through a smartphone or tablet.

Smart Home Surveillance Cameras

Wouldn't it be great to know what's happening at home, anytime, from anywhere? It's easy to do with a smart video camera. Just take out your phone, open your app, and you have an instant view of activity inside or outside your home.

Smart Locks and Home Security Systems

While lock technology has always evolved, only recently did it become smart enough to ditch those keys altogether. Thanks to smart home security technology, we can now enjoy keyless convenience with better awareness and control of who enters our homes.

Smart Heating and Cooling

Smart temperature-control devices — such as thermostats that learn and adjust to pre-programmed temperatures — are poised to increase comfort and save energy in homes.

Smart Lighting

When we talk about a smart light bulb, we’re referring to an internet-capable LED light bulb that allows lighting to be customized, scheduled and controlled remotely using a smart phone, tablet, or smart home automation system via an app. The app enables you to change the brightness of the bulbs, and if the bulbs have colored LEDs you can change their colors, too.

LG’s new A1 Series of OLED TVs costs as little as $1,299 for a 48-inch model, which is a huge dropdown from many other OLED TVs—consider the LG SIGNATURE OLED RX rollable TV that costs $87,000. But despite this low price, you’ll bag a lot of smart features for your money. Let’s take a look at what you can expect from the soon-to-be-launching A1 Series.

Receive Dolby Atmos, Dolby Vision, a two-speaker sound system, and more

The LG A1 Series features four TVs: 77-inch OLED77A1PUA, 65-inch OLED65A1PUA, 55-inch OLED55A1PUA, and 48-inch OLED48A1PUA. The prices range from $1,299 to $3,200. The LG A1 Series might be one of the most affordable collections of OLED TVs that we’ve seen, and although each TV is bursting with smart features, let’s begin by looking at a few of the missing components.

The TVs only offer a 60 Hz refresh rate (instead of 120 Hz for the C1 and G1 OLED TVs), which isn’t all that great for gaming and minimizing loading times. The LG A1 Series also lacks a HDMI 2.1 port, although it does come with 3 HDMI 2.0 ports to compensate. It also doesn’t features as high of a processor as comparing LG TVs, you’ll get a lot of features for your money.

Dolby functions

Starting at $1,299, the A1 Series sports Dolby Vision IQ. This technology allows the TV’s light sensor to automatically adjust the picture brightness based on the lighting in the room. Therefore, you’ll always receive the same picture quality in the day and at night.

Moreover, the collection includes support for Dolby Atmos and a two-watt surround system, so you needn’t include an external soundbar to enhance the sound. This is a slight drop from the 40- and 60-watt speakers in the C1 and G1 Series, but it’s immersive given the pricepoint. Dolby Atmos creates the sensation that the audio is enveloping you while you watch your favorite shows.

LG’s Alpha 7 Gen 4 AI Processor

Another impressive aspect of the LG A1 Series is that it includes LG’s Alpha 7 Gen 4 AI Processor. This processor automatically optimizes the image and audio settings. And it can even upscale content to OLED 4K—a similar feature of the C1 Series (which will start at $1,799). In fact, this technology allows you to get a cinematic experience at home. The A1 Series includes LG’s Cinema HDR, which, the brand claims, delivers a filmmaker’s vision. In particular, this technology provides an accurate picture quality with SDR and HDR contents.

Connected technologies

In a world where we want to be more connected and have smart features that make using appliances easier, LG’s A1 Series includes Apple AirPlay, Apple HomeKit, and it also offers support for Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, so you can make adjustments via voice command.

Overall, the A1 Series is available from June 2021, and you can visit LG’s official website for more information about release dates.

Do you think you get a lot for your money with LG’s new TV range? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
