[THE INVESTOR] LG Uplus said on June 21 it will release a new fan equipped with the Internet of Things technology under cooperation with Shinil Industrial, a local appliance manufacturer.

LG Uplus said the new IoT fan will connect to its “IoT@home” application, allowing users to easily activate and control the product.

Shinil, which topped the Korean Standard Quality Excellence Index in the fan segment for the 12th consecutive year as of 2017, is a major producer of small-sized home appliances.

Through LG Uplus’ exclusive speaker powered by Naver’s voice recognition system, Clova, users can also make commands such as “Clova, I’m home.”

The new fan will also notify users when it is used for excessively long periods of time, such as in the case of people leaving home without turning off products. It can also keep itself off to prevent access by children.

The price tag on the IoT fan stands at 139,000 won (US$125).
