Living in a fast-paced city entails a lifestyle that efficiently manages the small details so you can focus more on the bigger responsibilities at hand and have more time to enjoy the things you love.
By small details, we mean minute undertakings like making sure the door is locked when you leave home or that all the lights in the house have been switched off before you sleep. Like a ripple effect, forgetting these simple tasks because you’re too tired or too busy to check on them can actually affect your living conditions in general.
To put minds at ease, The Sapphire Bloc in Ortigas Center, Pasig City, has turned its South Tower residential units into “smart homes” by equipping them with advanced technologies to help residents live a better life.
Safety and security features
Starting with the Smart Lock found on the main door of every unit, residents can feel safe and secure as it prevents unwanted access into the home. With this device, you can choose to enter with an encrypted physical keycard that uses anti-clone technology, your own fingerprint, a numeric passcode with scramble feature that you can set yourself, or through an exclusive app installed on your mobile phone.
You also don’t have to worry about missing keys and having to replace your doorknobs every time that happens because you can simply switch up your access codes anytime for better security.
There’s also a built-in Audio-Video Intercom that functions more than just as a communicator. The system connects to the building lobby, so you see and verify the identities of all incoming visitors or delivery personnel through the screen panel. You can also do this using a mobile app so you can monitor and keep your home secure even while you are away from the door or away from your unit.
Making life better also means saving yourself from unwanted and unnecessary expenses. The Sapphire Bloc South Tower is equipped with smart home features that offer time, energy, and financial savings.
Each unit has smart power outlets that allow you to control home appliances using your smartphone. This means you can switch off any appliance without having to go around and check them one by one, saving you lots of time and energy, and keeps your home safe from electricity-related accidents, too.
This also allows you to control certain appliances, like your bedroom’s air conditioner, while you are on your way home, so you can cool your room before you arrive and have a more welcoming and relaxing experience.
The same concept applies to the Smart Light Switches that are installed in every unit. These remotely controlled lights help you save a lot of energy by controlling and adjusting the lights for optimum convenience and power savings.
Because we’re in the digital age, having a strong and reliable Wi-Fi connection is a staple in every urban home. The Sapphire Bloc South Tower units each come with a Mesh Gateway Router that uses MESH technology, enabling intercommunication between different types of smart devices.
This allows you to furnish your home with Wi-Fi-ready smart appliances like TV, refrigerator, and more, which you can all control and check with your smartphone or tablet. By having this feature available to all residents, they can manage their household activities more efficiently, saving them lots of time and energy to fulfill more important daily tasks.
The South tower is also Fiber-Optic ready, making work from home stations equipped with faster internet connectivity. With Fiber-Optic technology, your Smart Home features will also blend seamlessly together, allowing you to work faster and more efficiently.
In future developments, RLC Residences aims to include Fiber-Optic readiness across their other properties in and out the metro.
“All these smart home features, which you can exclusively find in residential units of The Sapphire Bloc South Tower, aim to make life simple and more enjoyable for our residents. Through these wonderful innovations, we are not only able to provide a comfortable and convenient space to live in, but also a new way of life that enable people to worry less about the mundane things and focus more on work and play,” says Karen Cesario, marketing head of RLC Residences.
The Sapphire Bloc is a four residential tower development with an extensive retail component, strategically located in the Ortigas Central Business District. It comes in studio, one-bedroom, and executive one-bedroom units that offer a convenient space with access to major establishments, company headquarters, and other institutions.
