Electronics makers dream of the “smart home”, where all devices are connected. LG has announced that their 2014 Smart TVs will incorporate a so-called AllJoyn system that allows home appliances, smartphones, tablets and more to communicate with the TV.

Soon you no longer have to get up to check if your coffee is ready. Your TV will tell you. Besides the banalities, the system will open up new possibilities such as automatic dimming of the living room lamps when you start a movie.

LG will enable in-house device communication with the open source system called AllJoyn that can be implemented by all manufacturers, large and small. It is said to work on all platforms, including Android, iOS and Windows Phone. The system will let household products as well as smartphones and tablets communicate with LG’s Smart TV.

- “Several smartphones or tablets, each running a completely different OS, can participate in the same multiplayer game on an LG Smart TV. In Mini Motor Racing, one person could steer his or her car around the track using the LG Magic Remote while the other players control their vehicles via the LG Gamepad app for mobile devices,” says LG.

It requires that the other devices also support AllJoyn.

LG has high hopes for AllJoyn. It be integrated into LG’s 2014 Smart TV that will be revealed at in January at CES 2014 in Las Vegas. FlatpanelsHD will be there.
