Keppel Land And Habitap Present Smart Homes That Learn

Property developer Keppel Land and smart home app developer Habitap previewed their latest collaboration this week at coworking space KLOUD at Keppel Bay Tower. 

The collaboration is a follow-up to the successful home management system rolled out at Corals at Keppel Bay in 2016.

Habitap’s latest home management system integrates the core functions of smart home controls, community management and lifestyle services on a single platform enhanced with AI with machine learning capabilities.

This update enables the system to progressively anticipate users’ preference and usage patterns and automatically adjust home features and settings to match them. The services range from storing information on the user’s preferred third-party service provider and automatically provide access to them when needed, to providing security alerts and reminders. 

While some of these features have been made available in the market by several virtual assistants in the market, Habitap’s Lifestyle Assistant Habitap Handy offers some features specifically developed to address Asian market such as options to enjoy services using natural language text and voice messaging via mobile app like WhatsApp and WeChat, which Habitap Founder Franklin Tang demonstrated at the launch.

“This advanced home automation system will be applied at Keppel Land’s upcoming residential development at Nassim Hill, and we hope this will provide added convenience to homeowners and improve their quality of life,” announced Ng Ooi Hooi, President (Singapore) at Keppel Land. When completed, the project is touted to be Singapore’s first smart homes powered by AI. 

Keppel Land also has plans to retrofit some of its existing projects with the same system. 

“We are very excited to introduce the new AI feature which will provide a harmonious and intuitive living experience for residents, in smart homes that learn,” said Tang.

“We constantly seek to innovate and improve Habitap. For example, we are incorporating technologies such as facial recognition with A.I. to go beyond just facilitating entry to buildings but to also integrate security, safety and people-locating features,” Tang added. 

The same mobile application also allows users to access management services, like settling various payments and deposits.
