Most people know that a “smart home” is a home that runs on “smart” technology, allowing you to remotely control appliances via your smartphone or an app. Sounds nifty, right? In fact, this is just a part of it. Smart homes not only make your life more convenient, they also promote sustainable living by making your home more energy-efficient. And that helps you to save money over time.
How can I get started?
If you like the idea of a smarter home and bigger savings, a useful first step is switching your electricity plan to Senoko Energy. The attractive rates they offers on their plans allow you to instantly save more than 30% on your electricity bills – and signing up is easily done on their website.
One of the fastest ways to make the leap to a smart home is by focusing on conserving energy. Energy-efficient lights such as LED bulbs not only use about 80 per cent less electricity, they also last much longer, making them cost effective. Using smart gadgets like automatic timers and motion detectors can help you slash your energy usage by turning off lights when you don’t need them. Smart power outlets and plugs also allow you to remotely monitor and restrict the drain of energy.
Through its partnership with Aztech Technologies, Senoko Energy customers can enjoy a 20% discount off the Kyla range of smart home automation products, including smart switches, motion sensors, and security devices. The Kyla-Smart Motion Sensor, for example, allows you to set your lights to turn on and off automatically as people (or even pets) come and go.
Still on the fence?
If you’re still undecided about making a change, there are other reasons to consider using Senoko Energy as your provider. For one thing, it’s a homegrown power generator that has been supplying electricity in Singapore since 1977 – the company is owned by global business heavyweights including Marubeni Corporation, a major Japanese integrated trading and investment business conglomerate, and French multinational electric utility company, ENGIE.
Reputation aside, Senoko Energy offers a great practical service for customers in the form of a live chat function on its website. This means you can chat with customer service agents and have questions answered in real-time.
Here’s a word from an expat mother-of-two, Milly, about why she made the switch to Senoko Energy.
What plans are available?
There are a variety of 12-month and 24-month fixed-rate plans from Senoko to suit your needs. The LifePower24 fixed-rate plan is available at an attractive rate of $0.1798 for 24 months and includes a $40 bill rebate. With bill rebates, monthly card payment rebates and even referral rebates, you can easily enjoy more than 30% savings on your electricity bill when switching from SP Group. In addition, you’re not required to pay a security deposit or monthly fee when you sign up, so you won’t be surprised with any hidden charges.
