Samsung and LG expand home appliances with features for pet owners

14. July 2022 Korean companies Samsung Electronics and LG Electronics are looking to launch more home appliances with functions for pet owners. This is in response to the growing number of pet owners, the companies’ respective spokespeople said in early May. LG Electronics, for example, is offering a software upgrade for certain home appliances with new programs specifically for pet owners. Owners of LG’s Tromm, Mini and Wash Tower series washers and dryers can use the new programs to better clean clothes of stubborn stains, dirt or grass. In addition to the software upgrade, LG dryers can also be equipped with a filter for pet hair. Machines used in households often need a KC safety certification, in order to be approved for sale and use in Korea.     Samsung, in addition to washers and dryers, has also adapted vacuum cleaners and air filters specifically for pet owners. For example, the Cube Air air filter can remove pet hair and odors from the air. The brand’s robotic vacuum cleaners monitor pet behavior and send an alert to the owner in case of abnormalities. According to a spokesperson, Samsung plans to expand its products for customers with pets in the future. KC safety certification was established to ensure basic safety in the design and manufacture of machines used in households in Korea. The goal is to protect the health and safety of consumers by preventing accidents. We provide certification services for all product areas, including KC certification for consumer products and especially electronics, KC-EMV certification for electronic products, and KCs certification for machinery, as well as KCs for explosion-proof products. We are available to answer any questions you may have about Korea certifications.
