LG has already said it'll show off a new tablet at this week'sconvention in Berlin. But that's far from the only gadget up the company's sleeve, as on Monday the South Korean electronics giant announced its new SmartThinQ Sensor.
The sensor attaches to compatible home appliances to make them "smart-aware," feeding information to the user through a corresponding SmartThinQ app.
According to LG, if the device is attached to a washing machine it will notify the user when a laundry cycle is done. Similarly, if you stick it to your fridge, LG claims that the SmartThinQ will let you know when food is about to expire.
The combination of the sensor and app will also provide a remote control function for appliances like air conditioners.
LG will also be showing its Wi-Fi enabled Smart Lightwave Oven, for which users can set the temperature and cooking time through their smartphones, and Smart Air Conditioner, which can also be controlled via mobile device.
"Adoption of smart home appliances has been slow because of the perception that the technology is not easily accessible," said Jo Seong-jin, president and CEO of the company's Home Appliance and Air Solution division, in a statement.
It's the second straight Monday that LG has unveiled new gadgets, as last week it launched the G PAD II 10.1, an Android-based tablet with a 10.1-inch screen and 2.26GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor.
Expect more on LG's new range of smart gadgets, G PAD II and more from, which kicks off this week.
