Turning a DBSS Flat into a Film Set Worthy Smart Home for the Whole Family

Turning a DBSS Flat into a Film Set Worthy Smart Home for the Whole Family

 

Lights, cameras, smart home.

If you’re wondering why this home may seem familiar to you, chances are that you may have caught a glimpse of it before on TV.

For followers of Channel 8’s dramas, you may recognise this DBSS home from part of the set for recent Mediacorp series, CTRL (操控). Featuring not only a luxurious home design reminiscent of a hotel’s interior by Eric Lim from Mr. Shopper Studio, the home also incorporates Koble’s state of the art smart home solutions, designed with homeowners, Ms Chua and her family in mind.

The home is retrofitted with smart solutions to complement their hectic lifestyle as young parents and full-time working professionals, and the integration of smart lighting fixtures, smart zip-tracks, voice control systems and more helps to elevate the luxury of the home, all while providing a good balance of convenience and comfort.

But how did it all come about? Why Koble? And what can it do?

In our interview with homeowner Ms Chua, we hence answer these questions.

How familiar were you with smart homes when you first decided on it?

Ms Chua (C): The idea of a smart home was pretty new to us actually. We knew about the benefits of one, but we weren’t sure how to go about building a smart home automation system ourselves.

What were your main factors for consideration then as first-time smart home owners?

C: When we were looking for a smart home solution, all we knew were that as working professionals, convenience and ease-of-use were the most important factors for consideration.

So what was the decision process like?

C: Our interior designer recommended Koble to us, and we went down to their office for a physical demonstration. While we had heard many good things about Koble by then, the user-friendliness of their smart home systems really sold it for us.

What stood out about their smart home system?

C: The stand out feature really has to be the ability to customise multiple switches and functions to run on singular commands.

Koble’s pro series switches, which enable scene control, and multi-device group control.

For example, I can just say ‘movie night’, my lights will turn off, my curtains will close, my TV will turn on and my house is ready for a cinema experience.

We also like the fact that we can control the switches from pretty much anywhere. For example, when I’m in the office and it rains, I can just open up the Koble app and close the Zip tracks.

Why would you recommend having such a smart home system?

C: Koble smart home system is very useful if you have children. Like me, I have a 2 year-old son. So now, when I’m busy attending to him, I have the convenience of controlling the switches just within the Koble app. This allows me to spend more time with him.

How do you find Koble’s smart home system so far?

C: Koble’s system is really convenient and easy to use especially for first-time smart home system users like us.

And how was your experience working with the Koble team?

C: The Koble team has been very responsive and helpful throughout the entire process! Everything was set up for us in a fuss-free manner and the team remains readily available whenever we have any queries. So, if you are looking for a smart home system, I would recommend Koble!
