Prestige (Singapore) - - SOCIETY -

The launch of our app Habitap, which will be used in 5,000 homes. I am proud that we started the trend of in­te­grat­ing smart con­trols, smart com­mu­nity and life­style gate­way into one sin­gle mo­bile app. WHAT EX­ACTLY DOES HABITAP DO?

It ad­dresses three dif­fer­ent core as­pects of mod­ern day liv­ing with a sin­gle app. First, it op­er­ates the con­trols in your home, such as the lights or your CCTV cam­era. Sec­ond, the smart com­mu­nity fea­ture helps you man­age the liv­ing ex­pe­ri­ence at your prop­erty, such as fa­cil­ity book­ings. And third, it serves as a life­style gate­way, as we’ve com­bined apps such as Grab and De­liv­eroo into one place. Last year, we achieved yet an­other first, ex­pand­ing to com­mer­cial build­ings. Our app is now able to re­place phys­i­cal ac­cess cards. SO HOW SMART IS YOUR OWN HOME?

The hon­est truth is I haven’t had the time to com­pletely im­ple­ment Habitap at home. My wife ap­pre­ci­ates some fea­tures such as light­ing con­trol, cam­eras and mo­tion sen­sors, which are pri­mar­ily tar­geted at mon­i­tor­ing our two-year- old son. We plan to build our very own Habitap home soon! Franklin Tang hails from the 2016 class of The Van­guards: 40 Un­der 40.
