    Habitap is different from other smart home technology in that it is a fully integrated platform which not only allows the user to control devices in his home, but also manage his community and lifestyle, said Mr Franklin Tang, chief executive of Philip Tang & Sons.

    For example, Corals at Keppel Bay is believed to be the first condominium with an RSVP system built into the smart home system.
