In line with Singapore's Smart Nation vision, Singtel has worked on developing innovative solutions for smart living for its consumers in Singapore, with field trials and solutions to be rolled out progressively from early 2016.
According to the local telco, integrated solutions from Singtel's Consumer arm will help consumers live better by managing anything from their homes and vehicles to family health and safety.
The Smart Living Solutions are premised on three key areas: home automation and safety, health and elderly monitoring, and connected cars.
Firstly, home automation and safety allows the seamless connectivity and control of locks, cameras and appliances at home.
Secondly, health and elderly monitoring measures elderly activity, tracking personal health data through connected health devices like blood pressure monitor, glucometer, pulse oximeter, thermometer and weighing scale.
Lastly, connected cars provide driving analytics, basic maintenance information, vehicle diagnostics, as well as enable the reception of real-time information on traffic conditions.
"As Singapore becomes a Smart Nation, we hope to help Singaporeans live better by empowering them to live more comfortably and safely with our smart living solutions. We want to play a key role in smart, connected living and homes of the future through an intelligent open platform with a rich ecosystem of partners," said Yuen Kuan Moon, Singtel's Chief Executive Officer of Consumer Singapore.
Singtel said that it is working with an ecosystem of partners, including Samsung and NCS, which recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Singtel to collaborate on smart home solutions for the Singapore market.
