LG Smart AC
LG Smart AC
This manual describes how to install and use the
LG Smart AC Models PCRCUDT2/PCRCUDT3.
LG Smart AC consists of a hardware Wireless
Local Area Network (WLAN) module, and a free
smartphone application (app). The user must
supply the smartphone; either an Apple® iPhone
or an Android® phone. LG Smart AC is not optimized for tablets.
LG Smart AC will also be referred to as Smart AC in this manual.
Before using Smart AC, you must download and install the latest
version of the free LG Smart AC app from either the App store
(iOS) or the Play store (Android).
Figure 1 shows the Smart AC app and WLAN module communicating through the home setup wireless network. Direct communication to the WLAN module occurs during initial registration.
Figure 2 shows the Smart AC app communicating through a
remote internet access back to the LG duct-free system.
The hardware WLAN module and the smartphone app together
provide monitoring and remote control capabilities for LG duct-free
systems. Smart AC functions only with certain models of the LG
duct-free system products. This product is intended for customers of
DFS systems, that wish to control their indoor inverter units within
their home or remotely at other locations (provided they have wireless connection) through the LG Smart module.
Some functionality of the Smart AC App may be limited due to the duct-free
single zone model. Check your owner’s manual for your model’s capabilities.
