Brittany Corp., a unit of homebuilder Vista Land & Lifescapes that caters to the high-end market, plans to introduce smart homes within the company’s residential developments starting in the second half of the year.
Brittany president Camille Villar said smart homes, which allows homeowners to control their houses, is the current trend in the housing sector and that the company plans to integrate the technology into its projects.
“It is the trend in the housing now, to be able to control your home. Turn on the aircon, turn on the security, turn on your light. Monitor your electricity and your security from afar, in your mobile phone, in your tablet. So we’re going to integrate that technology into a home,” Villar said.
Villar said the incremental cost of including the technology into Brittany projects homes was negligible and would be part of the package.
Brittany will be introducing smart homes first in its Portofino project in Alabang, where house and lot packages sell for P20 million to P50 million, as well as in Crosswinds in Tagaytay.
Villar said Brittany would look at available technology that it could offer to  home buyers after a lot of individuals opted to adopt smart home technology into their houses.
“We felt that there are a lot of key services that were already available individually like when you’re looking at security, CCTV cameras… so we put it all together and make into a package for our buyers. We took what was relevant. We took what was necessary. And we kind of repackaged it and integrated it into our homes,” she said.
