Con­nected Home

The In­ter­net of Things is al­ready im­prov­ing our lives. Here is how it can—and is— tak­ing the monotony out of our day-to-day rou­tine

You prob­a­bly al­ready tap into the In­ter­net of Things (IOT), and you might not even know it. You might have a wire­less baby mon­i­tor that lets you check in on your child while you are at din­ner with friends. You might wear an Ap­ple Watch that tells you the time, dis­plays your texts, and tracks your fit­ness progress. You might even use Ama­zon’s hands-free, voice-con­trolled Echo speaker to play mu­sic wire­lessly.

The IOT is what pow­ers these de­vices—an ex­tended net­work of peo­ple, de­vices, ap­pli­ances and ap­pli­ca­tions that uses wire­less tech­nol­ogy to con­nect and speak to each other. These de­vices have a com­mon goal: to make your life more con­ve­nient, more ef­fi­cient, and gen­er­ally hap­pier than ever be­fore. By re­act­ing to your be­hav­iour, and by speak­ing to you and to each other, they can sim­plify ad­min, help you find the fastest route some­where, take the worry out of health, chil­dren’s safety and much more, al­low­ing you to fo­cus on the im­por­tant things—like form­ing re­al­life con­nec­tions with the peo­ple you love.

HKT Pre­mier’s Con­nected Home So­lu­tions has the same aim in mind. It works in­tel­li­gently to re­spond to your needs at home, do­ing many of those mun­dane chores that de­tract from time that could be bet­ter spent in­ter­act­ing with our fam­i­lies, re­lax­ing in front of the TV, or un­wind­ing over a meal with friends. HKT Pre­mier’s cus­tomis­able ser­vice seam­lessly con­nects your home func­tions, giv­ing you the abil­ity to turn your lights on, close your cur­tains, se­cure your home, charge your elec­tric ve­hi­cle and much more—all with just the touch of a but­ton or through your voice.

To turn such dreams into re­al­ity, all you need is a high-speed in­ter­net con­nec­tion, ide­ally via a fi­bre-op­tic ca­ble, so if you are ren­o­vat­ing, make sure you in­clude plan­ning and ca­bling of the high­est pos­si­ble stan­dard.

If it all sounds a lit­tle un­real, visit HKT Pre­mier’s new show­case at the “io.t by HKT” con­cept store at El­e­ments to touch, feel and ex­plore what a beau­ti­ful, highly func­tion­ing abode looks like. Here, re­la­tion­ship man­agers and tech­ni­cal teams are on hand to ad­vise you on how to cre­ate the per­fect, tailor-made home with IOT.

Be­cause who doesn’t want a house that feels like a haven and works hard to make you happy? Cus­tomers who chose the au­to­mated light­ing sys­tem from HKT Pre­mier’s Con­nected Homes So­lu­tions can also choose from a range of light­ing fix­tures from Tom Dixon
