As part of Singapore's Smart Nation Vision, the HDB Smart Enabled Home Initiative aims to improve daily living in HDB homes through 'Smart Living'.
You can easily install commercial smart home devices and applications in a Smart Enabled Home, such as the Elderly Monitoring System and Utilities Monitoring System.
The Elderly Monitoring System provides families with greater peace of mind over the well-being and safety of elderly relatives, especially if they are living alone at home. The system learns the daily habits of seniors through the help of motion sensors and alerts you or other caregivers in times of need or when irregular patterns in behaviour are detected (e.g. if no movement is detected for a period of time).
HDB has partnered EMS providers to study the usefulness and user-friendliness of the system. One of such successful trials is ‘My Smart HDB Home @ Yuhua’.
The following are the commercial providers who are offering EMS packages:
