Singapore – On 13 November 2018, 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, launched Singapore’s first smart home powered by artificial intelligence (A.I.). 

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.

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.

According to Keppel Land, this advanced home automation system will be applied at Keppel Land’s upcoming residential development at Nassim Hill.
