Singtel has launched Singtel SmartHome, a solution that offers customers in Singapore a personalised smart lifestyle experience.
It will encompass home automation and security, according to a press statement on 17 October 2016.
The solution features a Smart Hub that can connect and communicate with more than 200 compatible smart devices. These include motion sensors, contact sensors and smart cameras, via Z-Wave Plus technology.
The Smart Hub is certified by Singapore's Info-communications Media Development Authority (IMDA). It integrates the home automation process and centralises control on a secure app. This expandable and customisable aspect of Singtel SmartHome allows customers to purchase additional smart devices for their smart home setup as their needs evolve.
Once Singtel SmartHome is installed, customers can securely monitor and control their smart devices in real-time and customise their home by setting rules to automate tasks. For example, homeowners can set air-conditioning and appliances to turn on automatically as soon as they get home.
Homeowners can also receive instant notifications about what is happening at home, no matter where they are.
Singtel Fibre Broadband customers can choose from two Starter Kits: Starter Kit with Contact Sensor (Smart Hub with 16GB Micro SD card and contact sensor) at S$25/month on a 24-month contract, or Starter Kit with Smart Lock (Smart Hub with 16GB Micros SD card and Samsung Smart Lock SHP-DP727) at S$45/month for 24 months. The Starter Kits also come with free installation and free 24/7 after-sales support for two years.
As for non-Singtel fibre broadband customers, they can purchase the Starter Kits at a one-time-charge of S$650 and S$1260 respectively.
"Smart homes are the homes of the future as Singapore becomes a Smart Nation. Singtel SmartHome is part of our vision of helping busy Singaporeans live better by using technology to empower them to live more comfortably and safely," said Wong Soon Nam, Vice President of Consumer Products at Singtel's Consumer Singapore.
