Singapore’s First Smart Home Powered by Artificial Intelligence

Keppel Land, one of Asia’s leading property companies, and Habitap, Singapore’s leading smart living platform developer behind Asia’s first fully integrated smart home management system, unveiled Singapore’s first smart home powered by artificial intelligence (A.I.) today.

The smart home management system currently integrates three core functions of smart home controls, community management and lifestyle services seamlessly on a single platform. It has now been enhanced to incorporate an array of leading-edge features, including A.I. with machine learning capabilities. This enables the application to progressively anticipate users’ preferences and usage patterns, thereby automating features and settings to provide seamless and intuitive experiences. These range from providing users with access to their preferred third-party service providers for maintenance of air conditioners and laundry services, for example, to automatic alerts and reminders on security issues, among others.

The revolutionary Habitap Lifestyle Assistant, Habitap Handy, also allows users to interact with and easily control devices within their homes, access services such as facilities booking and the visitor management system, as well as enjoy lifestyle services using natural language text and voice messaging on popular mobile messaging applications, such as WhatsApp and WeChat.

Mr Ng Ooi Hooi, President (Singapore) at Keppel Land, said, “In line with our brand philosophy of ‘Thinking Unboxed’, Keppel Land keeps itself at the forefront of new technologies and thoughtful innovations that can be seamlessly adopted at our properties.”

“This advanced home automation system will be applied at Keppel Land’s upcoming residential development at Nassim Hill, and we hope this will provide added convenience to homeowners and improve their quality of life.”

Mr Franklin Tang, CEO and Founder of Habitap, said, “Habitap’s goal has always been to integrate smart home features, community management and myriad lifestyle services for a seamless user experience. We are very excited to introduce the new A.I. feature which will provide a harmonious and intuitive living experience for residents, in smart homes that learn.”

“We constantly seek to innovate and improve Habitap. For example, we are incorporating technologies such as facial recognition with A.I. to go beyond just facilitating entry to buildings but to also integrate security, safety and people-locating features.”

At the same time, users of Habitap will be able to interact with and control connected devices within their homes such as door locks, lighting and air-conditioning systems via the customised, integrated platform. Smart smoke detectors within the homes can also send alerts to residents’ mobile devices or to the condominium security guards in the event of an emergency.

The same mobile application also allows users to seamlessly access condominium management services, such as payments for deposits. For developments with smartparcel lockers, for added convenience, the system enables residents to be notified via the application when their packages arrive in their allocated locker, with a unique code for unlocking.
