Singtel has announced the launch of Singtel SmartHome, delivering smart lifestyle experience encompassing home automation and security.
The launch aligns with Singapore’s vision to become a Smart Nation, according to Singtel officials.
Wong Soon Nam, vice president of Consumer Products at Singtel’s Consumer Singapore, said, “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.
“With our strengths in network and connectivity, and the wide array of smart devices that can be seamlessly connected, the possibilities that Singtel SmartHome can offer to customers are limitless,” he added.
More than 88 percent of households in Singapore have broadband connection. The country’s smartphone penetration rate is 83 percent.
Singtel has partnered with Hanman International to deliver SmartHome to its customers.
The system features a Smart Hub that can connect and communicate with more than 200 compatible smart devices such as motion sensors, contact sensors and smart cameras, via Z-Wave Plus technology. This IMDAcertified smart home “brain” integrates the home automation process and centralises control on a secure app.
Thanks to the customizable capability of Singtel SmartHome, customers can 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, customize their home by setting rules to automate tasks and receive instant notifications about what is happening at home no matter where they are.
The offer will be available to Singtel Fibre Broadband customers in two packages: 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.
These Starter Kits also come with free installation and free 24/7 after-sales support for two years.
Non-Singtel fibre broadband customers can purchase the Starter Kits at a one-time-charge of $650 and $1260 respectively.
Customers can also personalize their smart living experience with features that fit their needs by adding on other smart devices such as Smart Plug, Motion Sensor, Contact Sensor, Remote Control Extender, Samsung Full HD WiFi SmartCam, Samsung Digital Door Lock SHS-DP728 or Samsung Smart door lock SHS-H505, Singtel said.
