Smart home appliances continued to be a key focus at IFA 2018, the world’s leading exhibition for electronics products and home appliances, which closed on September 5 in Berlin. The Smart Home section saw 70 exhibitors from worldwide show off their latest innovations for the connected home. This year, the focus of smart home seems to have shifted from the living home to the kitchen, with several major brands launching innovations.

LG of Korea took the opportunity to introduce the latest products from its LG Signature premium collection. These include a new bottom-mounted freezer-refrigerator which can raise the drawer to the eye level so that the user doesn’t need to bend over to reach the contents. The refrigerator has a proximity sensor for opening its door, which is especially useful when one’s arms are full of groceries. It also has a “knock-on-door” function: when the user knocks twice on the tinted glass panel, the interior illuminates so that the user can see what’s inside.

Also from the LG Signature collection is a wine cellar which keeps wines at three different temperatures to suit their style. For example, the red, white and Champagne can be stored at the right temperature for the user’s enjoyment. Storing up to 65 bottles within its sleek metal frame, the wine cellar’s drawer refrigerator allows easy access at the touch of a button. With Wi-fi and voice recognition technology, the user can also use voice commands to open the door, turn on the interior light to have a better view inside, or ask how much wine is left in the cellar. Like the bottom-mounted freezer refrigerator, it also features a knock-on-door function
