Works ok with smart oven
I have this for an oven and it’s ok just not really necessary. In theory you can preheat your oven remotely but you must first have the remote knob turned on your stove before you can use it, so you have to prepare ahead of time or I guess always leave your oven set to remote start. It can notify you when the oven is preheated but if I’m on VPN I don’t get notifications and can not connect which is kind of unfortunate. It also sent me an alert saying my oven needed to be cleaned, although it’s pretty much spotless, I’m guessing it just is a time response. Has a diagnostic feature which I’m not sure what it does because it runs really quick. Needs to offer options to fine tune the oven and update settings instead of doing them at the oven. Like adjust temp, turning off convection adjustment, updating clock.... This isn’t an app issue but one with LG, LG needs to release a firmware update to let you change how quickly the time button increases time. If you hold down briefly when adding time it does it in 10 minute increments.
Not a Smart app for laundry appliances
Went with an LG washer & dryer in part because they were supposed to be Smart appliances, with this Smart app that lets you control the appliances remotely. Not smart at all, really nothing more than a monitoring app. You still have to manually push the power button on the units, because you can’t turn them on with the app, and the power turns off almost immediately when a cycle ends. While standing there anyway I cannot imagine what point there would be in using the app instead of just pushing a couple buttons. Even as a monitoring app it’s buggy- washer time is frequently off by as much as 10 minutes- I’ve gone down there because it said there was only a minute or two left, to find out there’s 10 minutes or more. Dryer frequently sends a “dryer has been stopped due to a problem” notification when the cycle is complete. I picked this set in part because I expected to be able to set up a wash load, and start it remotely so it’s freshly done when I get home or get up in the morning, and to be able to fluff clothes left in the dryer without having to go down two flights of stairs to push a couple buttons, then back up for 10 minutes, and back down again. Not sure what the logic is behind this limitation, if they’re Smart appliances they should know not to start if there is a problem, just like my car. I will say that I really like the washer and dryer, but they should not be advertised as being able to be controlled remotely.

We apologize for the inconvenience. Please note that the product's remote power control function is not applicable to the product as it is a global safety standard. Appliances with doors such as washing machines, dryers, dishwashers, ovens, and stylers are not available due to injuries of children or pets. ^LG
Don’t buy LG and expect support!!!
If only zero star was possible they would get it. Bought their 4K 50 inch TV because it states it is HomeKit compatible. HomeKit and their ThinQ app only work when the TV is on, you can’t turn the TV on from either once it’s off. I’ve emailed their tech support and got generic response that was no help. Spent 70 minutes on the phone with tech support and they had never heard of HomeKit, needless to say she couldn’t resolve the problem but said a supervisor would call back. Guess what, they never called. Called them back after 5 days and spoke to 3 different reps who had no idea how HomeKit works and couldn’t resolve the issues after 1 1/2 hours on the phone . She then said I will transfer you to higher up tech but actually transferred me to Apples tech support. Do yourself a favor, LG does not support their sales so pass them by and buy something else. Life is not good at LG
Response to LG’s response- Well yes this does seem like an issue for your customer service team. That’s exactly why I’ve called them twice, spent almost three hours on the phone with them and spoke with four different representatives none of which could resolve the issue for the ThinQ app or had any knowledge whatsoever of HomeKit that doesn’t function. I gues you didn’t fully read or understand my first post. Surely there is a more advanced tech team that actually has a clue how your system works, maybe consider having them contact me
