What is Auto Smart Connect / Smart Connect Inverter Technology in Refrigerators?

Generally, you do not connect your refrigerator to your home inverter system because refrigerators consume more power, especially when the compressor starts after its usual pause.

Secondly, home inverters in the past were less powerful than they are today. So they could not carry the load. Therefore, people never used to connect the home inverter to the refrigerator. As a result, the food used to get spoilt during power cuts.

However, LG has introduced a new technology Auto Smart Connect in its premium refrigerator models equipped with linear inverter compressors. These compressors function continuously at varying speeds according to the cooling requirements.

Auto Smart Connect feature allows connecting your refrigerator to the home inverter. So you need not worry about power cuts because the refrigerator compressor automatically switches to consuming power from the inverter system during a power cut.

Therefore, your fridge keeps working continuously, even during power cuts. Besides, the Auto Smart Connect feature does not require manual supervision to connect to the home inverter.

This feature does not exert any additional load on the home inverter. Instead, it consumes power equivalent to two CFL bulbs during power cuts.

Samsung offers a similar facility in its latest refrigerator models with a Digital Inverter compressor. In addition, these refrigerators have a Smart Connect feature that enables the appliance to connect automatically to the home inverter system during a power cut.
