Living in Hong Kong
For many of us, living in Hong Kong is bittersweet: there are things we love, and there are things we don’t. We all strive, in our own ways, to improve our lifestyles or at least the environment in which we live.
Some of the common inconveniences many of us face are:
- Temperature (the hot, humid summers, and the cold, dry winters)
- Security and care of our loved ones
- Long working hours
- Air quality
- And obviously, space
Thankfully, there are now solutions to these problems in the form of smart home devices. Let’s look at how they can help.
How can a smart home improve the life of a Hong Kong resident?
#1 Making the most out of your space
In recent years, there has been a lot of thought and development on how space, comfort and living could be improved at home. One of the easiest ways is to design your apartment with functionality in mind while powering it with technology.
Smart technology can tremendously improve the comfort and convenience of lifestyle in a normal home. See how a Hong Kong couple have turned their small apartment into a multi-functional smart home.
Imagine a home that is tailored to your unique lifestyle both in convenience and space optimization. A true smart home is a place where technology combined with design enhances the quality and standard of life, whether the place is small or big.
#2 Beating temperature at its own game
Can you recall a day during summer in Hong Kong where you would not be able to walk 5 meters without being sticky and sweaty? What about having to switch your AC on and off constantly at night or waking up to a room that is too cold?
Now imagine leaving work and entering your home which is already at the optimum temperature, or having the temperature automatically controlled for you as you sleep at night. That is what a smart home can do!
A smart home also allows you to control the comfort of your home from your mobile through Smart Temperature monitoring! With the touch of a button, you can set and control temperatures directly from the MTR or work.
#3 Caring for our elders
The security and well-being of our family members will always be a prime concern. In a city that already makes it difficult for elderly people to move around given its many stairs and upward slopes, our elders should have the most convenience while being at home.
In Hong Kong, a smart home would allow our parents or grandparents to access and command their home with as little hardship as possible. The ability to control lights, AC, or even entertainment through voice commands provides convenience like never before.
In addition, being able to be notified if anything happens to your elderly relatives through motion sensors, such as slipping in the bathroom or the living room, provides an added level of security.
Other benefits of a smart home in Hong Kong
Besides the solutions discussed above, smart homes bring further advantages that make our lives more convenient and fun while at home. Our home experiences can be entirely changed, and in many ways, unique to our personality.
- Energy saving
- Tailored experiences
- Comfort & lifestyle enhancements
Should you invest in a smart home?
Obviously, in our opinion, you should. Not only are there benefits for our daily lives as suggested earlier, but there more reasons why having a smart home in Hong Kong is an interesting investment. The great thing about smart home solutions is that they can often be entirely customized to the particular needs of individual users. Each home is unique and the lifestyle associated with it can be tailored thanks to the recent developments in AI technology in the IoT space.
There is no place like (a smart) home!
Looking at the development in the IoT space, and specifically at the smart home industry, many benefits can found for people living in Hong Kong.
