Q2 What advantages does Smart Living deliver? Why should I choose Smart Living?
A2

Smart Living facilitates the utmost convenience and enhances quality of home life:

We are the first telecommunications company to provide a one-stop "smart home" service. Customers can mix and match elements and components that best suit their household needs, without having to shop round for various technologies and equipment. Normally when building an intelligent residence, a householder must shop round for lighting, curtains and AV equipment. This is time consuming and troublesome in itself – to say nothing of the subsequent the bother of co-ordinating different installations and connectivity, then working with a diversity of vendors. The Smart Living experience is completely different: HKT professionals source all key elements for you, then work with you in genuine one-stop-shop fashion to arrange delivery and onsite works. In other words, we take care of the whole job, from end to end, then offer superb after-sales service to give you total peace of mind.

Imagine if you'd like to watch a movie at home. Once you have our Home Automation system, just a push of a button will close the curtains, dim the lights and activate your pre-configured AV equipment – instantly transforming your living room into a theater! Just add soft drinks and popcorn and you could be in the cinema, without leaving home!

On a scorching summer's day, we all love to be greeted by a cool breeze when arriving home from work. With Home Automation, you simply press a button on a smartphone app on the way and your air conditioners can be switched on to cool the place before you arrive.

Smart Living's Home Network service ensures you get wireless Internet access throughout the near entirety of your dwelling, so you can listen to music or watch movies on your smartphone, or work on your notebook, just about anywhere in the home. And having a smart printer operating via Wi-Fi means you no longer need to waste time transferring data to a USB to print documents or photos.

Want to upgrade your home AV system? Then feel free to visit one of our showcases and experience the various combinations of smart TV and hi-fi setups we offer. Once all the components are installed and linked properly, you can enjoy cinema-like entertainment in the comfort of your own home.

Some luxury residential property companies in Hong Kong have already started using the hi-tech smart home concept as a powerful selling point. Clearly, Smart Living is a worthy long-term investment, enabling householders to be at the forefront of a game-changing trend.
