Builders turn to IoT, Artificial Intelligence to woo home buyers

Internet of Things (IoT) and AI (Artificial Intelligence) are no longer just axioms even for real estate developers as they are increasingly deploying these in addition to home automation in a bid to catch fancy of buyers.

Developers are warming up to the idea of incorporating home automation products to their offering, a late addition to the standard amenities list so far. Given the cost factor, developers had earlier refrained from deploying these products.

“Real estate today is no longer confined to a brick-and-mortar structure with developers constantly looking for ways to offer value to customers. It has evolved into creating a healthy environment for people to live, work and play, thereby improving the health and quality of life of households around the world”.

However, with huge reduction in technology and deployment costs, more developers are opting for such products. Platforms that use cloud-based algorithms and sensor technologies monitoring indoor environment and alerting residents for corrective actions are also being deployed to bring wellness intelligence into the connected home environment.

Wifi-based home automation products like video door panels, motion sensor-based light and security management products and appliance control products that remote manage ACs, TVs geysers and other appliances that are app-controlled are becoming a part of new developments.

NBCC needs 8500 crore to complete Amrapali Projects

According to proposal submitted by NBCC (National Buildings Construction Corporation Ltd) in Supreme Court, it will require about 8500 crore to complete 46,575 unfurnished flats and will take about three years to do so. The cost includes NBCC fee of about 774 crore. While selling off unsold flats can generate money to the tune of Rs 4,885 crore, the remaining Rs 3,853 crore would have to be raised to meet the total amount required to complete the flats left unfinished by Amrapali builders.

According to affidavit previously filed by Amrapali, it was informed that Rs 5220 crore are needed to complete all these projects. The major difference in the estimate cost of NBCC and Amrapali is in the completion of Leisure Valley Rs 500 crore approx. and Golf Home Rs 700 crore approx. NBCC will act as a project management consultant (PMC) while the construction and completion will be done by contractors. The company however clarified in the proposal that it will not be responsible for Amrapali’s liabilities.

As of now, NBCC has taken the burden of constructing the remaining unfinished Amrapali housing projects within the next three years.
