Smart lock

Getting inside one’s home should be a breeze after a tiring day. With the smart lock feature, homemakers can bid farewell to dig deep in their bags for keys. All that needs to be done is enter the password on the digital numeric keypad or open the door via fingerprint scan. Residents can even unlock their doors through a smartphone app.

Audio and video intercom

24/7 security is a must for those living alone or, more importantly, those with kids. Having an audio and video Intercom device that lets residents see the person in the lobby before opening the door adds a layer of protection. To add, the smart home device is also connected to a smartphone app that can be accessed anytime and anywhere, putting homeowners’ minds at ease.

Smart power switches

Smart power switches are one of the most popular smart home features that define high-tech living. With just a click, a light can be switched on, and with just a few app navigations, brightness can be adjusted from white to warm depending on the mood or the occasion. Having the ability to control the lights with just a few taps, even from the outside, can truly impress friends and families visiting.

Smart power outlets

Smart power outlets are innovative electrical outlets that let homeowners control their appliances remotely via app. Worrying about appliances like the stove and the air conditioner left turned on can be avoided as one can easily turn it off from anywhere, in real-time. To add, homeowners can also save on energy since they can turn off appliances when not in use, avoiding unnecessary energy consumption.

Having smart home features in one’s own residence can truly make life more convenient, secure, and exciting. RLC Residences’ The Sapphire Bloc South Tower has been equipped with smart locks, audio, and video intercom devices, smart power switches, and smart outlets, among other modern features to keep up with Filipinos’ growing high-tech lifestyle.

“Innovation will always be a priority for RLC Residences. The Sapphire Bloc is a testament to how we continue to upgrade facilities that empower Filipinos to raise, live, and connect amid a very fast-paced world,” said Cesario.
