These days, you only have to scroll through your Facebook timeline and you’ll see loads of friends on the verge of a merge – just got engaged or getting married! The next step? House hunting and home furnishing!
Everyone dreams of having his or her own home at some point. I’m no exception! Being an aspiring film producer by day and otaku by night, my personal interests and lifestyle choices would definitely inspire my flat’s interior décor (think movie studio replica and manga themed wallpaper LOL). I’ve seen amazing examples of Marvel-inspired and Scandinavian-styled HDB flats! What does your dream home look like? :)
And since I’m part of a millennial generation (born into the age of connected devices and very tech savvy), I’m sure most of us would naturally opt for smart devices and smart homes!
By the way, HDB’s first batch of 1,400 smart homes in Punggol Northshore district went on sale earlier this year, with more batches to follow!
So, what is a smart home?
A smart home, usually a new one, is equipped with special structured wiring that enables occupants to remotely control or program an array of automated home electronic devices by entering a single command. For example, a homeowner on vacation can use a smartphone to arm a home security system, switch appliances on or off, control lighting, feed furkids, or even program a home theater or entertainment system. How convenient is that?! XD
On the topic of home entertainment, picture yourself sitting comfortably and being able to operate everything around you without having to set foot on the ground – your fan speed (mind blowing isn’t it hahaha), the audio in your living room, and finally, the programs and channels on your television!
Bringing smart home entertainment to life, ViewQwest will be participating in the Home and Decor Fair 2015 at Marina Square Atrium this weekend!
ViewQwest’s exclusive Home and Décor Fair 2015 offers include ViewQwest 2Gbps Fiber Broadband bundle (what’s a smart home without fast and reliable Wi-Fi right haha), Dyson Pure CoolTM Purifier Fan (wish I had this to deal with the #SGhaze!), Samsung 48” UHD Smart Flat 4k TV, Sonos Playbar and more! And if you’re not sure how all these devices add up, our friendly ViewQwest consultants will be onsite to deliver a live demonstration and address your queries!
The ViewQwest booth will also feature a full smart home showcase (image above), mini-events and shopping voucher giveaways!
Turn the lights on and off, or make them rainbow coloured! Connect the Philips device (images above) to a main port. With your home Wi-Fi, you can then use your tablet or smart phone to control your lighting.
This Netgear port (images above) allows you to transform your everyday home appliances into a smart appliance! Just your smartphone and a couple of smart applications. The world is (literally) in your hands.
Connectivity and automation will be the bread and butter of next generation homes, so it is a great time for you guys to head down to the Home and Décor Fair 2015 and check out these smart appliances in action! See you there! :D www.bandovetinh.xyz
