A special zone has been setup to let SITEX visitors try the FIBARO smart home system. They build a full size mockup smart home with bedroom, kitchen and living room. Visitors could try using their smart phone to control the automated blinds, remote turning on/off the lighting, activate the emergency button, etc. all by swapping their smart phone screen.
This is the first such large scale demonstration in a public event in Singapore. L3 Homeation Director, Mr Khoo, mentioned that the demonstration also inspired many students to learn about this trendy living style and many have expressed their strong interest in making a smart home control system as their school projects.
