LG Electronics’s 2018 LG OLED and LG Super UHD TVs will feature Control4 Simple Device Discovery Protocol (SDDP) technology. The integration enables LG to offer automation-ready televisions for consumers worldwide.
With SDDP, the Control4 home automation system automatically finds, identifies, authenticates, adds and connects the SDDP-enabled devices nearly instantaneously during initial installation and set-up, reducing the complexity and configuration time for Control4 installers, and reducing potential incompatibility with other devices.
“The addition of Control4 SDDP technology to our 2018 LG OLED and Super UHD TVs will make integration with a Control4 system easy and seamless for installers for a great connected home experience,” said Tim Alessi, head of product marketing at LG Electronics USA.
“The integration of exciting new products like the 2018 LG OLED and LG Super UHD TVs into Control4 projects delivers an exceptional experience for both the dealer and the consumer. Control4 is dedicated to providing our dealers with the flexibility to include the very best consumer electronics, seamlessly, into a Control4 smart home,” said Jeff Dungan, senior VP of business development for Control4. “Our partnership with LG further exemplifies our commitment.”
