Building The Smart Home of The Future For A Multi-Generational Family

Building The Smart Home of The Future For A Multi-Generational Family

When it comes to catering to the needs of a sizable family, automation is the way to go. The homeowners of a 4-storey bungalow at Punggol were looking to have the convenience of full control over their home. Read on to see what the Koble team has done for them!

Automation at this beautiful Punggol bungalow starts from the moment the homeowners drive home. The main gates to the house are voice activated rollers linked to Siri, eliminating the fuss and frustration of fumbling for keys.

Depending on the family member that activates the roller gates, a personalised set of automation rules triggers within the house itself.

For example, when family member ‘A’ reaches home after work between 7pm to 8pm on weekdays, he usually heads straight to his ensuite bathroom to bathe. The personalised automation rule for ‘A’ will be as follows:

when ‘A’ activates the roller gates between 7pm to 8pm on weekdays,

  1. the bedroom curtains will close,
  2. the bathroom lights will turn on and
  3. the water heater will be activated.

Each individual family member has their own unique set of automation rules customised to suit their lifestyle and routine.

With Koble’s app linking all of the lights and air conditioning in the house, it only takes a single button to shut down the entire 4-storey bungalow. Activation isn’t the only thing at the homeowner’s disposal. The tri-tone lights throughout the house can also be customised from warm to cool tones depending on the needs of the family. Koble’s system allows for the scheduling of activation times as well. The outdoor lights have been set up to turn on and off at specific times of the day, without requiring any action on the homeowner’s part.

The basement has a slightly different light set-up as the area designated for entertainment. With the pool table and lounge for movies and drinks situated here, the basement has been fitted with RGB lights and assigned a range of scenes that can be activated based on the activity of the day. The family have ‘Drinks Scene’ and ‘Movie Scene’ set up in their Koble app to name a few! Hosting guests and enjoying family time has never been more convenient.

With their elderly loved ones in mind, the homeowners have installed wireless smart switches which allows their elderly to control the room’s appliances through a central remote, instead of the app. Each button of the wireless smart switch is programmed as such: To turn on ‘appliance X’, press once. To turn ‘appliance X’ off, press twice. This means that their elderly can control the lights, fan, air conditioner and curtains using a single wireless switch. This is perfect for the family members that are not as tech-savvy as the others, and also safer for elderly folk as less movement is involved.

For even more ease of use, their walk-in wardrobes have motion sensors that automate lights; making sure that the space is always lit to prevent any accidents. Curtains and blinds are no exception in this smart home. The family has full access to the curtains and blinds in both the living room and master bedrooms.

The master bedroom in this bungalow is divided into four areas with two doors; bedroom, walk-in wardrobe, toilet and outdoor terrace. With so many switches around for the different areas, the homeowner can toggle between modes to activate multiple areas instead of having to walk to each individual area. For example, the ‘goodnight mode’

  1. turns the air conditioner on,
  2. draws the curtains and
  3. automatically turns off all the lights in the master bedroom.
