OhmConnect, the leading residential energy management company, today announced the integration into the LG ThinQ App from smart home leader LG Electronics.
U.S. consumers with LG room air conditioners can now access OhmConnect’s Demand Response program using the LG ThinQ App. The gamified energy engagement experience allows consumers to earn rewards for automatically managing use of their LG air conditioners during periods of peak grid demand.
The LG ThinQ App allows remote temperature control for LG room air conditioners to reduce energy consumption when the electrical grid is stressed. LG and OhmConnect plan to expand this service later this year.
