Many of us have heard the story about the miraculous features of the magical mirror in Snow White’s tale. Now, the latest gadget to jump on the smart home bandwagon is one straight out of a fairy tale! Whether you want to check the weather forecast or news updates, or control your home, the gadget is here to satisfy your needs. The “magic mirror” of the 4.0 era is one of the highlights at The Marq – a luxury condominium in the heart of Ho Chi Minh City.

An era of smart devices

The concept of luxury has long been associated with heritage values and superior craftsmanship. However, in the 4.0 era, conventional beliefs are being challenged by technology driven by the Internet of Things (IoT). This change is being fueled by the icons of ultimate luxury – contemporary residences, with the global smart home device industry currently expected to reach $54 billion by 2022.

Technology-oriented amenities are rapidly spreading across the apartment segment, bringing a new level of interaction and revolutionizing resident connection to homes and beyond. According to the 2017 NMHC/Kingsley Renter Preferences Report that surveyed 250,000 apartment residents, nearly one-third of those polled own between five and nine internet-connected devices. From condos and villas to spacious apartments, people across top cities are experiencing luxury living with these popular smart home devices.
