LG’s smart home garden will allow you to grow vegetables all year round
LG has decided to join the popular trend of growing vegetables at home with a new standalone Tiiun device. This device is for those people who want to have a supply of greenery all year round, but do not want to start their own vegetable garden for this. The Tiiun system has already gone on sale in Korea.
A power supply unit the size of a miniature refrigerator has two shelves for growing plants. Each holds six seed blocks with soil and holes for stems. The internal temperature is adjusted automatically using LG’s proprietary refrigerator technology. LED lighting with time synchronization simulates natural daily cycles. The system also controls the optimal air flow for growth. The transparent door allows gardeners to observe the growth of the crop and protects against insects, so there is no need for insecticides. You can count on the first harvest in 4-8 weeks.
The operation of the device is controlled using the LG ThinQ mobile application, where various parameters are configured as needed. The application notifies users when the water tank in the device is empty, while automatic watering will water the plants 8 times a day.
There is no information yet about prices and the possibility of buying outside Korea, but Tiiun has already gone on sale in October in LG’s domestic market for 1.49 million won ($1,250). The company says that Tiiun will be virtually presented on a digital exhibition stand at CES 2022 from January 5.
